The mom doesn't look fat, but that baby looks freaky.

Thankfully she had a caesarean delivery.

IMO... The baby looks Gary Coleman.

when we were in the hospital for our first baby, the girl sharing the room with my wife was more than two weeks overdue and had been in twice with "false labour". THey knew the child was going to be large, but had no real idea. They ended up inducing and still no luck so did a caesarian. THe baby was just under 11 poinds, while our daughter was a slender 6 lbs 4 ounces.

WHen we laid the two babies side by side (we have a photo) their baby (one a day younger than our daughter) looked like he was two months old next to ours! several inches longer, a head nearly twice the size ... what a contrast!

News reports last night indicated there is serious concern about child obesity. I didn't realize it was starting in the womb.

Do you really think the mother appreciates your humor? I'd like to see you give birth to a 15 lb child! Shame on you!

That poor woman! Our doctor predicted our son to be around 6lbs, so they induced me at 1 week over due. After 16 hours of labour and 2 hours of pushing they decided to do a c-section. He was 9lbs 13oz and 24inches long, we are afraid to get pregnant again. I would be on some serious birth control if I was this woman.

Lighten Up, the Mother is probably making jokes about it. My Grandmother bave birth to a 13 lb ??oz baby naturally, and everytime the subject came up, She joked about it, even when my Uncle wasn't around.
