SOCHI, January 24 (Itar-Tass) — A giant baby weighing 6.5 kilograms has made his way into the world in the Russian Black Sea resort city of Sochi.
A 29-year-old woman, Irina Yanshitova, gave birth to the baby on Sunday, January 22. The boy is her first child. Both the mother and the baby are feeling well.
“We wish the mother and the boy good health and will keep an eye on your family and the boy,” Mayor of Sochi Anatoly Pakhomov said on Tuesday, visiting the woman at the local perinatal centre.
Medics of the Sochi perinatal centre say the city has been seeing a baby boom for the past several years. As many as 500 newborns, including six pairs of twins, have been delivered since the beginning of the year.
According to medics, newborns weighing more than five kilograms are classified as “giant babies.”
The world's heaviest baby was born in 1879 in Ohio and weighed 10.8 kilograms, but the baby died 11 hours later, according to Guinness World Records. The heaviest baby to survive was a boy born in 1955 in Italy’s Aversa. He weighed 10.2 kilograms.
