A woman gives birth to an 11-pound, 8-ounce baby, around the size of a two- or three-month-old.pink

Sarah Dines, a 35-year-old teacher from Broadstone, Dorset, experienced an extraordinary birth with her first child, Montague, who weighed an impressive 11lb 8oz at birth. This weight is roughly equivalent to the average size of a two or three-month-old baby. Due to Montague’s size, he went straight into toddler clothes and now, at 11 months, wears clothes meant for two to three-year-olds.

Sarah had initially hoped for a home water birth without pain relief but had to undergo a C-section due to the baby’s size. She described Montague as looking “ridiculous” because of his size when he was born. The doctors, amused by the situation, joked that he was ready for school, and the towel they wrapped him in was too small.

Montague’s birth weight put him in the 99.9th percentile for height and the 99.6th percentile for weight, making him one of the largest newborns in the UK. Despite concerns, tests for gestational diabetes came back negative. Sarah, who is 5ft 9in, and her husband Elliott, who is 6ft, were not small themselves at birth, but Montague’s size was still unusual.

During her pregnancy, Sarah’s baby bump appeared large, but all scans indicated a normal-sized baby, estimated to weigh around 8lb. Montague was 10 days overdue, leading to discussions about a planned C-section or induction. Eventually, he was delivered via emergency C-section after Sarah went into labor but failed to dilate.

Post-birth, none of the clothes Sarah brought to the hospital fit Montague, and even the hospital’s cap was too small. Her sister had to buy larger nappies and clothes. As Montague grew, he consistently wore sizes larger than his age, and at nearly one year old, he wears clothes for a two to three-year-old.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the average birth weight for both boys and girls is 7lb 8oz. By comparison, a two-month-old baby boy averages 11lb 5oz, and a girl averages 10lb 5oz. At three months, the average weight for boys is 13lb 2oz, and for girls, it is 12lbs. Montague’s birth weight significantly exceeded these averages, marking him as an extraordinary case.
