Big baby boom: Supersize deliveries have doctors worried... -

Big baby boom: Supersize deliveries have doctors worried... - 

A month after delivering a 13-pound, 12-ounce baby girl, Pennsylvania mom Michelle Cessna is reveling in the healthy arrival of her “little blessing” while also scrambling to re-stock her diaper supply.

“We had to exchange all our little diapers for bigger ones,” Cessna, 37, says with a laugh. And baby Addyson shot right past newborn clothes and left the hospital dressed in an outfit meant for a 3-month-old.

Addyson Cessna joins a small but growing club of giant babies making headlines. So far this summer, a German baby girl weighed in at nearly 13 and a half pounds; a California woman had a 13-pound, 10-ounce girl; and just last week, a British mom in Spain gave birth to a 13-pound, 11-ounce daughter. 

And back in March, a British mom gave birth — naturally — to a 15-pound, 7-ounce son.

All these whopping newborns are starting to leave moms-to-be a tad nervous — and some doctors concerned.
