We usually brag about everything being BIGGER here in Texas, but not when it comes to a newborn baby. Making his debut into the world in a big way, baby JaMichael Brown weighed in at 16 pounds and 2 feet tall ! This makes him the biggest Texan ever born. His parents say that most of the stuff they bought him is too small, but Baby Brown has bigger problems than finding something to wear. According to the nurse who helped deliver JaMichael said there are health implications for an infant this large.

The medical term for large infants is “macrosomia,” literally meaning “large of body.” These babies often have high blood sugar at birth, and a greater chance of obesity or diabetes later in life, doctors say.How big is possible cause for concern? According to Babycenter.com, over 9 pounds and 15 ounces is considered “much larger than average.”

While he may be much larger than average, he’s still not quit the biggest out there. According the to Guinness Book of World Records a baby born back in 1879 weighed in at 23 pounds !
