This Mom Won The ‘Biggest Baby Birth Weight’ Competition

Babies are measured from the first doctor’s visit up until the very last. And clearly, some babies are born MUCH bigger than others.

A TikTok launched a “who has the biggest baby competition”, and one mom’s response went viral.

Let’s Play “Who Had The Biggest Baby?”

A trend has gone viral on TikTok where moms compete for the top spot of who gave birth to the biggest baby.

One woman won by a whole lot, and let’s just say that it’s clear why.

Standard Baby Weight

Most babies are born between 37 and 40 weeks.

They usually weigh somewhere between 5 pounds, 8 ounces (2,500 grams), and 8 pounds, 13 ounces (4,000 grams). However, that offers a lot of wiggle room.

It All Started With This TikTok

Out of curiosity, a user posted a TikTok asking her followers to share how much their babies weigh.

She continued: “Whoever sees this video, tell me the weight of your biggest baby.”

The Response

The video has over seven thousand comments and has been seen by millions.

Some moms started posting their own TikToks in response to show photo proof of their big kiddos.

“You wanna play ‘the biggest’ baby? I got you,” she said. “At 38 weeks and one day, I had my second son via C section by two doctors. Because he came in at a whopping 14 lbs .6 oz.”

That’s A Big Boy

“He was the biggest baby in there,” she adds. She said there weren’t any clothes or diapers that fit her baby.

The nurses had to “go up to pediatrics to get size 3 diapers, and he came home in clothing 6 to 9 months,” she said.

He Spent Some Time In The NICU

Because he was so big, her baby had to spend 11 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

After much demand, shans1588 shared a video of what her son looks like today, five years later.

A Follow-Up

Since this video went viral, the mama shared a follow-up story.

Her baby, now five years old, has grown into a “healthy, stubborn, and strong” guy who loves football, baseball, and monster trucks.

Another Woman’s Story

This mama’s stomach was measuring 47 weeks when she was only 38 weeks pregnant. So, they scheduled a C-section.

The doctors only thought her baby was going to be 10 pounds 2 ounces, but he turned out to be a 12 pounder!

Four Big Boys

Bethany has given birth to four boys. The first was 9 pounds 8 ounces, and the second was 9 pounds 4 ounces. The third was 10 pounds 8 ounces.

Her last baby was 13 pounds 11 ounces, and he was delivered NATURALLY. Kudos to her!

The Moral Of The Story

Overall, a woman was able to successfully give birth to a 14-pound child, which means that practically anything is possible.
