Holy macaroni, that is one big baby!

My friend just had a baby the other day and it weighed 11 lb 11 oz. I thought that was big!

Let that be a lesson to all of you who are, or will be gestational diabetics! You must take care of yourself!

She's very lucky...clearly she did not properly take care of her diabetes. Many worse things could have happened as a result.

*Now I'm off my Labor nurse soap box*

That being said, he's a a very handsome baby!

Whoaaaaaaa that's one big baby!!!!!!! Yep, diabetes definitely needs to be taken care of. Can you imagine how big she must have been?!!?! Indonesian women are usually pretty small too. I'm not surprised she had a c section...

When I found out my friend had that 11lb 11oz baby, mine and mum's first thought was "does she have diabetes??" - How does gestational diabetes contribute to the baby's weight?

The mom's high blood sugar gets to the baby, and the baby's pancreas makes insulin to combat it...the extra insulin and glucose makes the baby put on extra fat.

There are other problems that can be associated with poorly controlled diabetes, including the baby having heart malformations, hypoglycemia after birth, jaundice, etc. It's a serious thing, and anyone diagnosed with it should treat it as such. Not taking care of themselves directly impacts the health of their baby.

That's awful!

This friend that had the baby is not the brightest crayon in the box. She thought that breastfeeding alone would be an ideal contraceptive. (She got pregnant shortly after her previous baby)

Yeah, that particular form of "birth control" is notoriously unreliable!

OUCH.

Ok, I'll quit complaining bout my 11lb daughter (which for the record I was not GD, yes I was tested, and yes I had her naturally. My body is apparantly made for having babies Which makes me glad I'm not having another, can you imagine, babies supposedly get bigger each pregnancy )

It worked the opposite way for my mom - older brother was 10+ lbs, I was 9+ and younger brother was 8+

My first was 7lbs 10oz and I had quite smoking the moment I found out I was pregnant.

Second was 11lbs even, and I had not quit smoking...cut down dramatically yes, quit no. (not implying I'm proud of that or anything...mentioning it because normally smoking lessens birthweight)

Sidetrack: babies seem to be getting bigger. In 2000, 11lbs was considered quite large (even 9lbs was large).... now babies in around 9lbs are more common.

I have to laugh cuz I remember all the doctors and nurses coming in and saying "Can I see your baby" They were all amazed.... me, I wasn't so much amazed at her weight, I was amazed she was a she as I thought she was a he.

Thanks for posting that one guys!!! ...

A family friend was 11lbs & delivered naturally. I mean I delivered naturally too but my guy was only 8lbs 2ounces.

There's some video at http://www.hulu.com/watch/97690/nbc-...-19-pound-baby which has a better picture of him next to another newborn (It's probably only available within the US)

You nailed my feelings on the matter perfectly!

I do hope the mom and baby have access to the proper care they need. The baby is cute
