    5.4 kg is not the worlds biggest baby, you guys need to do more research, that is only 11.9 lbs, and that is more common than the biggest ever........try doing more research before you post a title like that, the biggest ever was 24 lbs and i believe 9 oz, and it was born in china, plus a 22lb baby was born in italy in 1955.....my sin was just birn on nov 28th and he was 11 lbs 4 oz so try again!
