An Indonesian mom recently gave birth to a 19.2-pound baby boy. No, that's not a typo. Close to 20 pounds!

I guess I'll never again complain about giving birth.

The new baby was 8.7-kilos and 62 centimetres (24.4 inches) long. For obvious reasons, he was born via Caesarean section earlier this week in North Sumatra province.

The mom's OB/GYN Binsar Sitanggang said, "This heavy baby made the surgery really tough, especially the process of taking him out of his mum's womb. His legs were so big."

Sounds like mom has diabetes, but this is the only child of four that she delivered in a hospital. And I'm happy to report that this little heavyweight baby (here's a photo of the giant baby boy) is healthy and very very hungry.

Did your baby tip the scales? How much did he/she weigh at birth?
