Just like baby bumps come in all different sizes, newborns also come in all different sizes, as evidenced by the weight of some of the heaviest babies born in 2017! The Guinness World Record for the heaviest baby goes to Giantess Anna Bates’s 22-pound son, who was born at her home in Seville, Ohio on January 19, 1879.

Even though these women didn’t break the world record for birthing the heaviest baby, their newborns are still worth mentioning!

This Florida mom, Chrissy Corbitt, gave birth to a 13.5-pound baby girl. Her baby, Carleigh is reportedly already wearing clothes meant for a nine-month-old and using size three diapers.
