Indonesia’s â€˜Heaviest Babyâ€™ Born
JAKARTA ~ A woman has given birth to Indonesia’s heaviest ever baby, a boy weighing 6.9 kilograms, hospital staff said.
“He was born at about 4:30pm on Monday, but because of respiratory problems, the baby was taken to Fatmawati (hospital) a few hours later,” a nurse said.
The 37-year-old mother has gestational diabetes, which puts babies at risk of being heavier than normal. Indonesia’s previous heaviest baby, according to the Indonesian Museum of Records, was born in Surabaya and weighed 6.4 kilograms.Filed under: Health
