Docs stunned after delivering huge 7kg baby that’s the size of a one-year-old

Doctors were shocked when they delivered a baby weighing a whopping 7kg, believed to be the "biggest in the state" it was born in.

Angerson Santos was born via cesearean section in the municipality of Parintins, in the interior of Amazonas, Brazil, on Wednesday (January 18).

The child is believed to be the biggest in the state of Amazonas, which is in the northwestern corner of the country and is greater in size than the areas of Uruguay, Paraguay, and Chile combined.

Angerson's mother, Cleidiane Santos dos Santos, 27, arrived for an obstetric consultation at the Padre Colombo Hospital the day before the birth, but was told that the child would be too big for a natural delivery, Diario Do Nordeste reported.

So, the next day, the delivery via cesarean section was performed and chubby Angerson was born without abnormalities.

Angerson's height at birth was 59 centimeters, a full eight centimetres more than the average for a newborn.

The hospital launched a campaign to help the parents as Angerson's pre-bought clothes wont fit him.

The health unit is reportedly collecting bigger diapers and baby clothes for 9 months and 1-year-olds for the huge child.

“I did not expect this surprise. I thought it would be four kilos, but it turned out to be seven kilos.

"I want to thank the team at Hospital Padre Colombo, who have been giving me strength and treating me very well, since I arrived here, if it weren't for them, I don't know what would have become of me. 

"So, I thank each one,” said the child’s mother.

She has five more children and was in her 40th week of pregnancy.

One of her other children shocked the family when he was born at 4kg, reports in Brazil stated.
