Mom Delivers World's Heaviest Triplets! How much did your baby weigh?

Mom Delivers World's Heaviest Triplets (VIDEO)

Posted by Jeanne Sager on November 15, 2012 

heaviest tripletsBig birthweight babies have a bad rap. Moms hear 12-pound baby, and they cringe. But a set of babies dubbed the world's heaviest triplets have left me appreciating just how lucky some of us are to never have worried about how much our babies weighed.

When Brittany and Jason Deen's three sons came into the world, the doctors added up their three birthweights. Together, they topped the Guinness record of 18 pounds, 11 ounces. Come on, make your guesses!

The triplets weighed a total of 20 pounds. Even!

That means that all three kids weighed in the "normal" birthweight range for singletons! Jenson weighed 5.5 pounds, Elliott weighed 7.3, and Sidney was 7.8.

Now consider that the average triplet is around 4 pounds.

Those two bigger boys? They are both bigger than my (very healthy) daughter was when she came out. And I remember being so worried about how much my child would weigh. I was worried that a big baby would make me tear (didn't happen), would hurt more ...

And here this woman is LUCKY to have had babies who were considered "big," at least for multiples. Certainly changes my perspective on big babies.

How about you?

I personally think big babies are awesome. I love hearing about the ladies who naturally deliver 10-12 lb babies.

Wow those are big babies. My biggest was just over nine sounds. She was 22 inches long. Now she's almost six feet tall. My older boys were right around 21 inches long. Now they are 6'6" and 6'3" tall. My fourteen yr old is almost 5'6". I don't think he'll grow as tall as the others.
