September 27, 2007: Woman [caesarian-] births a 17 pound baby



Booyah! We had a 16-pounder as IotD in February, so news of this 17-pounder had to make the site as well. The Mail via Neatorama has the details on this lass, Nadia, born by c-section in Siberia.

I guess the first eleven make womb room? Anyway, this is not a record, but still notable. Especially for the look on the kid next door, who must feel inadequate.

That looks like a really loud baby.

P.S. I thought it was a girl.

Not uncommon in twin and multipul births for one fetus to steal blood supply from the others. Pretty common.



freshnesschronic  Thursday Sep 27 07:51 PM

The other's baby's eyes are open (rare!) cause he's like "dayum, what they feedin' you in there, Life cereal??"

No, many open their eyes right away if you cover their heads from the bright light. They cannot focus immediately. In a week or so they can focus about to the lenght of their arms.


freshnesschronic  Thursday Sep 27 08:14 PM

Oh yeah, I forgot what it was like to be 3 minutes old, thanks Merc

You're right. corrected

It really is funny looking at that little baby looking at the big baby...

"Somebody tell that baby to quit acting like a crybaby and give it a big bottle of shutthefuckup!"

She wasn't a twin, though, was she? the other baby is just an innocent bystander wheeled in for size comparison, methinks.

And no, it isn't rare for babies to have their eyes open when they're awake. And who could sleep through that racket?


rkzenrage  Thursday Sep 27 08:32 PM

The day my wife was born there was a lady that had a 16lb baby naturally.
At least her mom told me naturally... I still try not to imagine it.



xoxoxoBruce  Thursday Sep 27 09:09 PM

So, she's a Siberian... husky?



monster  Thursday Sep 27 09:54 PM

I'm waiting for the IOTD entitled "Man births 17lb baby".... now that would be something to gawp at.



orthodoc  Thursday Sep 27 10:15 PM

That's gotta be a diabetic mom ... with twelve kids. (Gestational diabetes produces biiigg babies.)

Hope the older kids do housework. I once took care of a postpartum mother of twelve who was working on a beautiful piece of handwork when I made rounds in the evening. The nurse came in and asked how she managed the time to do such beautiful work with twelve children ... the mom looked at her and said, 'My dear, with twelve children, I don't DO housework!'.

Well if he goes for natural child birth, I don't want to see it!!!

bigbaby/fatbastard voice: "Get that tit in MAH BELLY!"

As for me... ouch, just ouch. C-section or not.

And now for something easier to handle:

The world's tiniest baby - meet the 10oz bundle of defiance
Last updated at 23:35pm on 27th September 2007

When she was born, 15 weeks premature and weighing ten and a half ounces, her father's confidence was about the only thing on Kimberly Mueller's side.


In the few snatched moments he was allowed before his daughter was whisked away by doctors, Andreas Mueller spoke from his heart.

"I whispered to her: 'Kimberly, you'll make it,'" he recalled.

Scroll down for more...


The size of a mobile phone: Kimberley Mueller weighed just over 10 ounces when she was born in Hanover, Germany - making her the world's smallest surviving baby

Russian woman gives birth to 17lb child


With a survival chance of less than 1,000 to one, every day she has got through since then is a triumph.

Six months later, Kimberly has finally been allowed to go home to her parents in Hanover.

"Babies as small as this usually have no chance," said Dr Oliver Moeller, a heart specialist who treated her.

"We are incredibly lucky that she lived. Such a case I have never experienced. We had a lot of luck ... a lot."

Kimberly is the smallest baby ever born in Germany and the youngest to survive.

She was just 10.2 inches long and weighed little more than a packet of butter when she arrived in the 25th week of her mother's pregnancy.

Scroll down for more...


Now six months, Kimberley has been allowed home for the first time (Above with mother Petra and father Andreas)


Petra Mueller, 38, who remained at her daughter's bedside in intensive care at the University Clinic in Goettingen, was allowed only to stroke her with her finger.

"It was the nicest thing when she would grip my finger in her tiny hands," she recalled.

"She was like a little bear gripping a tree trunk, just hanging on for life as if she was saying 'Don't leave me, mummy'."

Kimberly was placed in an incubator for warmth, given a respirator to help her breathe and fed through a drip. She was also given a cocktail of drugs to boost an immune system that was barely formed.

At three months, she faced a major setback, when doctors feared she could be blind. But laser treatment corrected the problem.

Kimberley's chances of living were rated at worse than 1,000-1 when she was born 15 weeks prematurely



Kimberly's progress was underlined when she arrived home this week weighing five and a half pounds and measuring 17 inches.

During the coming weeks she will continue to be fed artificially and will need to have oxygen as her lungs keep developing.

The world's smallest known surviving baby was Rumaisa Rahman who weighed just 8.6 ounces when she was born in Chicago in 2004.

The thing I don't understand about premature babies is this - why don't they just put them back in until they're finished? Not quite ready, back you go.

Often they do try, some women spend nearly half their pregnancy on their backs in a hospital bed. They often can't get up even to go to the bathroom. Once the amniotic sac is broken, germs may get in from the outside.

Amazing, the difference between the largest and smallest baby, 17 lbs vs 10 oz.
