ABaby Jasleen, Born At 13.47 Pounds, Is Germany's Heaviest Baby Born Vaginally (PHOTOS)
Jul 30, 2013
Germany has a new holder for the title of "heaviest baby."

Jasleen was born at University Hospital in Leipzig on July 26, weighing in at 13.47 pounds, and measuring 22.6 inches long -- and she was delivered without the help of a C-section, reports the New York Daily News.

Story continues below photo.

The medical term for babies born weighing more than 8 pounds, 13 ounces is "fetal macrosomia," and heavy babies are often attributed to maternal obesity and diabetes, among other factors. In Jasleen's case, doctors said her size is due to an undiagnosed case of gestational diabetes, reports the German paper Der Spiegel, which adds that both baby and Mom are doing well, though Jasleen remains in the hospital.

Until Jasleen's birth last week the title of Germany's "heaviest" or "largest" baby belonged to one named Jihad, who was born in November 2011 and weighed in at 13 pounds.

Jasleen, however, is not the heaviest baby born this year. We can't forget about about George King, who was born in March to a British couple and weighed in at 15 pounds, 7 ounces -- and again, yes, he was delivered vaginally.

And on July 11, Pittsburgh-area woman Michelle Cessna gave birth to Addyson Gale Cessna, who was born at 13 pounds, 12 ounces, and measured 25 inches via C-section.

While big babies seem to be on the rise, the Guinness Book of World Records says the heaviest baby ever born weighed 23 pounds, born to Anna Bates in 1879. No other newborn has tipped that scale yet, but here are seven who have come close.

there is no reason for a baby to get that big and I can only assume she was not getting prenatal care?  They would have picked up the gestational diabetes if she was..  I had GD during pregnancy, and they watched me carefully, my baby was normal size at birth.  Crazy.  The poor thing can't even breathe on her own.

We didn't find out that I was a type one diabetic until I was 6 months pregnant. I had prenatal care. An appointment every month.
