A mother in Indonesia has given birth to a baby the size of the average
1-year old.

The boy weighed in at a substantial 19.2 pounds.

The mother had a Caesarean section for the birth, and had suffered diabetes during her pregnancy, which contributed to the baby's size.

The 41-year-old mom and her fisherman husband already have three children.

Dad says everyone's in good health, his only worry is making enough money to feed the baby, who's eating like a horse.

The Guinness Book of World Records says the largest surviving babies born were both 22.5 pounds.
