The people are of the opinion that the baby was born with a weight less than the average - not a healthy newborn, even if it came without any complications and in time.
Large as children with more height and weight considered healthy.
Pathology or norm
The norm for newborns feel the weight of threekilograms, plus or minus 500 grams. We can say - this is a classic weight. "Giants" believe babies weighing more than five kilograms. The growth of these heroes is also above average and can reach up to 60 centimeters.
However, there are times when even these "heroic" rules exceed a few tens of percent.
Such large babies will not necessarilygiants, when they grow up. With age, the difference with children with the average parameters decreased gradually, and the maturity is lost altogether. For example, born in Texas, Tom Dzherrison in 1962 he weighed 8.5 kilograms and was 58 centimeters of growth. By age 10 he already weighed 33 kg, ie the average was within normal limits. In 50 years with the growth of 175 cm, the weight of his body was 80 kg. It turns out that nature itself corrects faults in the development of the giant-children.
However, all is not well. Doctors are studying for several decades such anomalies. Most children born with a weight above normal later suffer from diabetes, have significantly more common allergic diseases. This is due to altered muscle tone. In children born to large developing neurological disorders often enough. Of course, the appearance of such a child into the world is not necessarily that he will develop all these diseases, but the risk of their occurrence is much more than the "average" child.
Just the parents of a baby in the future will need to be paid to such factors more attention.
Birth Records Giants
The world has long captured the appearance of newbornwith a weight exceeding the norm. The Guinness Book of Records describes many such cases. More recently, in Indonesia I born baby, whose weight was more than nine kilograms (2009). The growth of the boy was 62 cm. Of the birth of a child can hardly be called normal delivery, most likely, it was the extraction of the mother.
Modern medicine is ready for such surprisesNature, therefore, the health of the mother of the hero out of danger. The difficulty lay in the upbringing of the child after birth. Mom always had a baby to feed, as it is the first of his life differed increased appetite. On the other kids, this large baby and different voice, because he was crying a lot louder than the others.
This increased development of the fetus, doctors explainillness mothers with diabetes. The largest newborn in the former CIS countries is considered to be a boy weighing 6.7 kg (Samara) and a girl, who was born in the Altai, her weight was 7.7 kg. So far the record is a child whose birth weight reached 10.2 kg. This baby was born in 1955 in Italy.
