Incredible! Brazil Welcomes Record-breaking 16lb Baby Born via C-Section, Already in Need of Clothing for 9-Month-Olds

A remarkable event unfolded in Brazil as a baby weighing a staggering 16 pounds (7.3 kilograms) and measuring two feet long was born via C-section. The birth took place on January 18th at Hospital Padre Colombo in Parintins, Amazonas State, to mother Cleidiane Santos dos Santos, 27.

During a routine consultation, medical professionals realized that the unborn baby, whom they named Angerson, was too large for the mother to carry to full term. As a result, a C-section delivery was necessary.

Angerson, now being cared for in an incubator and reported to be in stable condition, is believed to be the largest baby ever born in Amazonas State, measuring 59 centimeters long. Despite his size, both the mother and child are reported to be in good health.

While Angerson sets a new record for the state, the national record remains held by Ademilton dos Santos, born in 2005, weighing 17 pounds (8 kilograms). Ademilton was also born via C-section in Salvador, northeastern Brazil, with doctors attributing his size to his mother’s diabetes condition.

It is worth noting that the largest baby ever born naturally was Anna Bates in Italy in 1955, weighing a staggering 22 pounds 8 ounces (10.2 kilograms), which is approximately the same weight as a fully grown Beagle.

Angerson’s birth has captured attention and highlights the extraordinary nature of this event, as his size necessitates clothing and diapers typically used for nine-month-old babies.
