LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Consultant physician Matthias Knuepfer at the neonatal intensive care ward of the University Hospital in Leipzig, Germany, says that Jasleen's mother arrived at the hospital on the day of her birth. 

Jasleen's mother case of diabetes usually develops around the 24th week of pregnancy and can lead to larger-than-average newborn size.


Both daughter and mother are doing well after the birth, though Jasleen remains in the neonatal care unit.


Jasleen has snatched the title of Germany's biggest baby from a 13-pound boy named Jihad, born in Berlin in 2011.


A British mother gave birth vaginally to a 15 lb., 7 oz. baby boy named George last March.


According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the heaviest baby ever was born to Anna Bates of Canada in 1879. The 7'5" mother and her 7'11" husband welcomed a 23 lb. 12 oz. baby boy, but he died 11 hours later.


Like their adult counterparts, a heavier baby can often signal health problems. When a baby is born weighing more than 8 pounds, 13 ounces, the condition is known as "fetal macrosomia" and can be attributed to maternal obesity and diabetes, among other factors.
