Heaviest baby in China born in Beijing

Last Friday, Zhao Xiaoju (27 years old) gave birth to a 6,250-g baby in Fengtai Hospital of Beijing, to becomethe heaviest baby born in China ever. Currently, both mother and baby are well.

Zhao is a conductor of the No.702 bus in Beijing, and she is 120 kg heavy.

“Giant babies are usually the result of excessive nutrition, heredity or diabetes,” said Tu Jinghui, vice director of the department of gynecology and obstetrics of Fengtai Hospital.

The previous heaviest baby in China,6,150 g in weight, was born in Xuzhou, Jiangsu Province on February 3, 2006.
