Mom Gives Birth To Biggest Baby Any Doctor Has Seen

For Christine Corbitt, this is the last time she’s going to have a baby. She knew she’d had enough when she gave birth to her third baby.

While she was pregnant, she knew that her belly was too large compared to other pregnant women. But she thought that her baby would be around 10 lbs. She said that towards the end of her pregnancy, she was so shocked about how huge her belly is. She never knew that her daughter would be so big when she was delivered by C-Section.

When Carleigh Brooke Corbitt was born, Christine said that she heard the doctors laugh because her daughter looked like a toddler pulled out of her belly!

Christine said, “I’ve had nine and 10-pound babies and I figured maybe she’d be 10 pounds. I’d have another 10-pound baby, but she was a surprise.”

But what made it more surprising was that if Christine waited longer, Carleigh could have been bigger! Carleigh was born 6 days earlier and if Carleigh wasn’t born that day, she could have grown during those days. Larry Corbitt, Carleigh’s dad, admitted that she wore a size-3 diaper the moment she was born. Even though they are used to having heavyweight babies but he was also shocked when he first saw Carleigh.

He said, “When the baby was coming out, I was like, ‘Is this baby ever going to end?’ Everybody in the room kind of just stopped during the delivery and was like, ‘Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh.’”

Carleigh needed to stay in the NICU longer than other infants do so that the doctors can keep an eye on her. According to her doctors, babies who are larger are because of diabetes. When they were sure that all her tests showed that she was healthy, Carleigh was released. She was also very healthy and did fine during her three-week appointment.

But mom admitted that she needed some rest. She said, “I’m done. I’m done. No more babies for me.”

Carleigh’s size when she was born may seem rare, but this is not the first time. One of the Twitter users congratulated them for having Carleigh, saying, “Congrats, to you All. She’s beautiful!! By the way, my baby brother weighed exactly the same!!! In 1974. God bless you.”

Carrying a baby for the whole nine months is not easy. How much more with a baby as heavy as Carleigh. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the heaviest baby ever recorded was in 1879. The baby is Anna Bates from Canada and she gave birth to a 23-pound 12 ounces baby.

Sadly the baby passed away after 11 hours. In 1955, a baby from Aversa, Italy was born at 22 pounds, 8 ounces.

Babies will always be a blessing to a family, no matter how big or small they are. They will always be cute and adorable and Carleigh is surely one of them. Every mom knows that pregnancy can be crazy and it will always be an unforgettable experience. But nothing can beat what Christine has to go through.

But no matter what she says, everyone who knows their story is very proud of her. Christine will always be the proud parent of a 13-pound baby girl.
