Ouch! Mom Gives Birth to 14-Pound Baby [BIG PHOTOS]

Sara Brandon

Five-month old Joel Brandon, Jr,  nicknamed J.J., is already wearing the same size diapers as his two- year old twin sisters.

He is the biggest baby born so far this year in the U.S.A. and there’s a good chance he will take that title for 2013.

His mom is hoping he does.  Sara Brandon from Orem, Utah admitted to the Huffington Post, “We’ve kind of been watching and waiting to see if there is a baby who is bigger, because he might be the biggest of the year.”

Can you blame her?  After giving birth to a baby that big, she should get some kind of award.  J.J. was born in May by caesarean section weighing exactly 14 pounds and was 22 inches long.

Based on ultrasounds, doctors had anticipated him being large- they had estimated 11 pounds- and had even scheduled two doctors for the delivery. But no one guessed 14 pounds.

Because of his size, his mom says J.J.’s birth was quite tricky. He required special maneuvering as he was ‘so big and crammed in there’, she told the Huffington Post.











After he was born, he suffered respiratory problems and needed to spend a week in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. But he has since returned home and is in good health, his mother said.

Not-so-little J.J. may get this year’s Biggest Kid in America Award, but he’s just a peanut compared to  this year’s biggest newborn in the world, George King from England, who was born in February weighing 15 pounds 7 ounces.
