Big Chubby Baby

No doubt many have heard and read about the Russian Mom who gave birth to a 17 pound baby girl earlier this week.

The story linked to above notes the following item:

    The Guinness Book of Records says the heaviest baby ever was born in the US in 1879. It weighed 23.12 pounds but died 11 hours after birth.

The Guinness Book of Records is grossly in error.

The heaviest baby ever born in the US was born on April 23, 1954:

Since being born, the mouth on the above baby has never closed. Amazing? Not so much...
