Breanna Sykes was told her baby would be big – but they had no idea just how big until her 5.9kg infant arrived.

“It was a very big surprise,” Breanna told PerthNow from her hospital bed at Joondalup Health Campus. “The doctor would not induce me (at first) but then measured me on the table and said he thought my baby would be about eight or nine pounds.”

“My waters broke, and I was fully dilated, but the pain was too much.”

“I was having an anxiety attack so they had to put me under anaesthetic.”

“When I woke up they told me I had a 13.2 pound (5.9kg) baby.”

Ziad Kadic was born via caesarean section just after 7.15pm on Saturday weighing in at 5.9kg (13lb) and measuring 57cm.

He could well be the biggest baby born in WA, possibly Australia.

“I have had 15 doctors come visit me when they found out how big he was,” Breanna explained. “Most have said he was the biggest newborn they have ever seen.

“One of the doctors said to me he’s the biggest baby he has seen in his 15 years as a doctor.

“(My partner) is very excited, he is out celebrating. And my family are just shell shocked. They just can’t believe how big he is.”

“The doctors said it could be genetics,” she said. “They have done all these tests and all the blood work, he’s perfectly healthy.

“He’s just so chunky, beautiful, very chubby, cuddly and sleepy.”
