A Sydney mum has given birth to the biggest baby ever seen at Blacktown Hospital.
Parket James Bell was born weighing a hefty 5.75kgs – 12lb 6oz – on Thursday to parents Nikki, 28, and Michael 30.
Doctors say this is the largest baby they can recall at the hospital.
Parker’s birth was shared in the Blacktown Midwifery Group’s Facebook page, with many commentators saying his size compared to their six month old babies.
Despite this, mum Nikki, didn’t seem too fussed:
“I’m sure all births hurt, whether it’s 1.7kg of 5.7kg — they all hurt,” she told the Daily Telegraph.
