Sarah Dines’ first baby, Montague, A mum have birth to a baby weighing a hefty 11lbs. Now 11 months old and weighs in 28lbs 6oz. This makes him the average size of three-month-old baby as a newborn when he just was born.
When she was pregnant docs all predicted Monty would weigh around 8lbs. isn’t big like that. She wanted to have a water birth, but Monty was 10 days late, so it got to the point where the doctor was talking about a planned ᴄ-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ , made safe for baby and mom. Sarah ended up needing to go to the hospital for an emergency ᴄ-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ. Monty was born bigest at that time in the hospital .
‘Monty’ was born went straight into toddler clothes and now wears items for two to three-year-olds.
Sarah, a teacher, initially wanted a water birth in her home in Broadstone, Dorset, without ᴘᴀɪɴ relief, but eventually had to have a ᴄ-sᴇᴄᴛɪᴏɴ, partly due to the size of her baby. He was so big when he was born, he looked ʀɪᴅɪᴄᴜʟᴏᴜs.
“When the doctor’s took him out, they were all laughing and I didn’t know why at first. One of them said he was ready for school, and the little towel they wrapped him just didn’t fit. He was in the 99.9th centile for height and 99.6th for weight.”
None of the clothes Sarah brought in for Monty fit when he was first born. Even the little cap nurs gave him at the hospital was too small. As he’s grow up he’s gone up and up in sizes, he’s always been in bigger clothes than his age.
None of Sarah’s doctors can account for why Monty was born so big.
Sarah said: “After he was born we were both tested for ɢᴇsᴛᴀᴛɪᴏɴᴀʟ ᴅɪᴀʙᴇᴛᴇs loads of times, but it was never positive. I’m 5 foot 9, and my husband Elliott, 41, is six foot, so we were never going to have a small baby.
