Woman gives birth to ‘toddler’
If you think you gave birth to a big baby, you haven't met this woman.
The US mum revealed in a now viral TikTok video that her second child weighed a "whopping" 6.5kg.
The mum who goes by the handle @shans1588 decided to share her story when a TikTok user put out the call for people to share the story of their big babies, and she was only too happy to reply.
"Oh you want to play the biggest baby?" she replied. "I got you."

The mum stood in front of the image of her son shortly after birth and explained.
"At 38 weeks and one day, I had my second son via C-section with two doctors assisting because he came in at a whopping 14 pounds, point six ounces."
Her baby was also almost 60cm long.
In Australia, the average weight of a newborn is around 3.3kg and the average length is around 50cm.
"That's right," she says. "I gave birth to a toddler, who then spent 11 days in the NICU where clearly, he was the biggest baby in there.
"The NICU didn't even have diapers for him or clothes. They had to go upstairs to paediatrics and get size three diapers and he came home in clothing, sized six to nine months."
Her video has since racked up almost two million views with commenters quick to chime in with jokes.
"He's already got a credit score," quipped one person.
"That baby drove himself home from the hospital!" added another.
"He started college classes the next day," wrote a third person.
In a follow-up video, the mum assured everyone that her not-so-little bub is five now, and a healthy and happy boy.
"Our baby boy J is a healthy, stubborn and strong five-year-old who loves baseball, football and monster trucks."
