Little baby George was so big—15 pounds, 7 ounces—that his complicated birth left him with just a 10 percent chance of surviving. But six weeks later, he’s recovering well. “He’s a little miracle—well, a big miracle, really,” his mother, Jade King, told the BBC. The first sign of trouble for King, who delivered him vaginally, was when George’s shoulders became stuck during birth, leaving him without oxygen for five minutes. Now, George's MRI results have come back normal and he is settling in nicely, wearing the clothes for a 3-to-6 month old that he's been wearing since he was born.
According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the biggest baby to survive infancy was born in Italy in 1955and clocked in at a remarkable 22 pounds, 8 ounces. Oh baby!
