5ft Mom Shocked By 14lb 8oz Baby
Little did she know that she was going to give birth to a little giant.
When Jack arrived at 37 weeks he weighed an astonishing 14lb 8oz.
Health problems kept him in the hospital for 4 months after his birth.
At the age of 14 weeks he had 95 per cent of his pancreas removed to treat his condition. The operation was a success and doctors allowed him to go home with medication.
Today, Jack weighs nearly 22lb, compared with the average weight at six months of 16lb, and wears clothes for a child aged 12 to 18 months.
Sara describes him as "such a happy baby, always laughing and giggling. People can't believe that he's only six months old when I take him out in his pram."
