Baby girl weighs in at nearly 14 pounds
Newborn nearly double the weight of average baby



MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin (AP) -- Weighing in at 13 pounds, 12 ounces, Delaney Jessica Buzzell isn't your average newborn. Her parents have even dubbed her the "Big Enchilada."

The baby headed home Tuesday after being delivered by Caesarean section on June 23 -- a surprising three weeks early.

Her family isn't quite sure what to make of her weight. The father is 6-foot-2 and the mother is 5-foot-7, and nurse Judy Nadolski described them as "regular-sized."

"We're pretty normal," 34-year-old Paul Buzzell said.

Nadolski said carrying the baby in her arms was like holding a 4- or 5-month-old infant. The diapers and baby T-shirts also were a little on the snug side.

"It was ready for a steak," the nurse said. "It had quite an appetite."

This isn't the first supersized baby for Paul and Robin Buzzell, from suburban Mequon.

Their now-4-year-old daughter, Cameron, was born weighing 11 pounds, 8 ounces, and their second child, Alexis, now 2, weighed in at 10 pounds, 8 ounces when she was born.

When Cameron was born, Paul Buzzell said he posted a sign on the door that said "Home of the Whopper." When their second child was born, Buzzell put up a sign describing her as "Whopper Jr."

With the birth of the "Big Enchilada," the Buzzells say their family is now complete.

"This will be the last one," Paul Buzzell said.

The child weighs near double the average newborn. And according to the National Center for Health Statistics, less than 1 percent of babies weigh more than 11 pounds at birth.[/B]

My husband weight almost 14 pounds when he was born. Veterinary delivered him because there was no doctor in the little village southwest of France during the war. No cesarean section.

You will be surprised how they will find room. I went from a size 8-10 to someone having a 68 inch waistline when I was pregnant with my twin girls. I'm 5 ft. 4 inches tall. I'm just glad they came over a month early at 6lb 1oz and 5lb 13 oz.
