Remember how much you weighed when you were born? It’s not something people typically think about or advertise, most because it doesn’t really matter. That is, unless you were born at some extreme end of the scale. That’s where Carleigh’s story begins.
Meet Carleigh’s mom, Christine Korbit. On May 15th, she gave birth to a happy, healthy baby girl. That’s pretty standard as stories go. But there’s one little detail we haven’t yet mentioned. Did we say little? We mean big.
That’s right. Baby Carleigh was born weighing a whopping 13 pounds, 5 ounces. And no. That’s not a typo. “When the doctors pulled her out of me, I just start hearing them all laughing and excited in the operating room,” said the new mom who delivered via c-section.
“They were throwing out numbers and when they showed her to me and said 13.5 pounds, I couldn’t believe it. It looked like they pulled a toddler out of my belly.”
“She’s like a six month old baby,” said proud papa, Larry Corbitt. “We contacted Pampers and Huggies to help us out because everything we got to prepare is just out the door. None of it fits.”
“She’s in size 3 diapers. The clothes she had on yesterday were for a 9 month old. She’s huge.”
These stunning photos show the gorgeous baby girl who weighed twice what the average newborn weighs.
It doesn’t make her any less cute, though.- Advertisement -
