February 1, 2007: Woman births massive baby

The nightmare of every pregnant woman? Say hello to "Super Tonio" - shown here in a photo, next to a "normal" sized newborn.

Tonio was born in Cancun Mexico, weighing in at 14.5 pounds (6.6 kg), and sized at 22 inches (55 cm). Part of the official AP caption:

According to doctors the baby drinks 5 ounces of milk every three hours, and measures 55 centimeters (22 inches) in length. Antonio's mother, Teresa Alejandra Cruz, 23, and father, Luis Vasconcelos, 38, said they were proud of the boy, and noted that Cruz had given birth to a baby girl seven years ago who weighed 5.2 kilograms (11.46 pounds).

So she was 16 when she had the 11 1/2 pounder. Good gawd.

I wonder if she has a tattoo like this.

zippyt  Thursday Feb 1 11:24 AM

Great Googly moogly !!!!
I wounder if she wistles when the wind blows !!!

Dypok  Thursday Feb 1 11:32 AM

That makes MY pelvis hurt.

23 and 38...was the first child from the same father? 16 and 31, what is the cultural feeling on that in Mexico?

Sheldonrs  Thursday Feb 1 11:59 AM

I've always wondered how some women say sex hurts when this is what comes OUT of them.

Elspode  Thursday Feb 1 12:24 PM

I'm speechless. All I can really think of is my favorite old joke, with the punchline, "Hell, if I could find my car keys, we could *drive* out!"

Now I know where Jabba the Hutt came from.

My cousin just had a 10 lb baby a few weeks ago and I thought that was large.

Kitsune  Thursday Feb 1 01:52 PM

My god. Look at the pudge, the neck crease! Right out of the shoot, this kid is going to need a CPAP machine to sleep at night.

monster  Thursday Feb 1 02:28 PM

Remind me again, which day is recipe day? Lotsa meat on that. Tender.

No mention if the lady was diabetic..... Even gestational diabetes can account for larger babies. It also does not say of she has this baby (or the other one naturally or C-section)

Also the "normal" weight baby looks quite tiny, most likely a 4.5 - 6 pounder. Might even be premie because of the feeding tube, and the oxygen saturation monitor on his/her ankle. I think this was on purpose to show how large the other one is. You know more shock value

Either way, he is a big baby, here is hoping he is healthy and does not end up being obese as a child or adult.

normal-sized baby

I LOVE the fact they've included a normal-sized baby for comparison. Whose baby is it?

"Hey man, take a picture of this HUGE F*@!ING BABY!"
"Yeah, but in a photo, you won't be able to tell how big it is."
"Hmm. You're right." *Grabs random newborn* "Here, now we have a proper sense of scale!"

I wonder how a 3 month-old crawled back in there.

My ex's sister gave birth to an almost 14 pound baby. He was huge. She had a natural birth with him although I don't know what the midwife was thinking because she tried to pull him out by the hand causing permanent damage to the child.

I don't know if they sued the hospital or not, but they should have.

I hate you.

funkykule  Friday Feb 2 10:16 AM

Am I missing something?!?

Shawnee123  Friday Feb 2 11:16 AM

hmmm, dunno?

monster  Friday Feb 2 01:22 PM

?? I sure am.

lumberjim  Sunday Mar 4 09:39 PM

from predator

reminds me of a different joke, spode.

so, after the big baby is delivered, the doctor says, "man, that's a big, that's a big pussy."

and the mother says, "why did you say it twice?"

and the doc says, "I didn't"

Kagen4o4  Sunday Mar 4 09:40 PM

Empathy made me hurt (keep in mind I have osteoporosis in my hips) and did the whole reading and helping my wife give birth not too long ago. I may not "know", but I have a pretty damn good idea, especially since during my last surgery the nurses told me the sensation was a lot like child-birth. I be hatin'. That is one big damn baby.

Kitsune  Tuesday Mar 6 03:06 PM

Mueck had a massive baby, too. (scroll down)

xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Mar 6 09:37 PM

Mueck's baby still has a section of umbilical cord attached and lot's of bloody gunk. I'd rather have a big burger.

Aliantha  Wednesday Mar 7 01:26 AM worries. I was just wondering. He was a big baby that's for sure. He's an equally big kid now too. Actually he's only 12 but looks like your average 15 or 16yr old. I think it's cause he's Samoan.
