Hunter James was born August 18th at 8:08am. I started going into labor so they went ahead and took the baby by c-section. Everyone was super shocked when the doctor pulled the baby out and he was huge. The doctor made everyone in the or guess the weight. It turns out that he was the biggest baby born in the hospital in 29 years. He weighed 12lbs 15oz. and was 21in. long. He is super chubby, and super cute and has a head full of black hair. Right after he was born, his sugar dropped and he was breathing a little fast, but other than that he was perfect. He does have jaundice now and is on a bili blanket at home, but hopefully he will get rid of that soon. Because of it I have to give him formula every three hours and just breastfeed when he is hungry in between. Hopefully it doesn't mess us up to bad with nursing. Anyway, Thank God He is finally here- can you imagine carrying that much weight around? So did I have the biggest baby this month?

May I ask why they have you giving formula instead of nursing him full-time?

Holy Moly! One of my closest friends had a baby that weighed that same amount and was 24" long! That's like having two babies at once!
Congratulations on your big, healthy boy!!
