Baby Jasleen photos surfaced online on Tuesday after news that she became the biggest baby ever born in Germany weighing 13 lbs and 4 oz, the equivalent to 6 kilograms.
At her weight, Baby Jasleen already weighs what a 1-year-old baby does.
Baby Jasleen was reportedly born naturally on July 26 at the University Hospital in Leipzig, Germany, according to the Associated Press. Mother and baby are doing well, according to MSN Now and doctors continue to monitor her health.
The mother, whose name has not been disclosed, reportedly had an undiagnosed case of gestational diabetes. According to the American Diabetes Association, many women develop gestational diabetes around the 24th week of pregnancy which can lead to macrosomia or a "fat" baby.
Holger Stepan, the head of obtetrics said the doctors prepared for the delivery for potential complications but the birth "went well" and even a cesarean section was not necessary "with the mother delivering vaginally," reported The Local.
Before Jasleen arrived, the biggest baby born in Germany was Jihad, who was also delivered naturally in Berlin in November 2011, according to German news outlet The Local.
In March 2013, a bigger baby than Baby Jasleen was born in the United Kingdom. At 15 pounds, 7 ounces, baby George King was born, about twice the sixe of an average baby.
The biggest baby ever born weighed 23 pounds 12 ounces (10.77 kilograms), according to the Guiness Book of World Records, but he reportedly died the next day.
