Big boys are not good men
Nie Junying, a 28-year-old Xiangtan pharmacy nurse, never expected that she would give birth to a 5.
Big fat boy weighing 25 kg.
At present, both mother and child are in good health.
According to the infant weight standard, babies over 4 kg are huge, but it is not new now.
The reporter learned from Changsha Maternal and Child Health Hospital and other hospitals in the city that the birth rate of huge children in our city has increased year by year. Obstetricians can’t help but sigh, should the weight of the baby be changed?
Attracted everyone to watch. Yesterday morning, the reporter saw the little “super man” sleeping in bed in the maternity ward of the City Maternal and Child Health Hospital. His face was chubby and his arms were a lot thicker than normal newborns.
Because of his large size, his “meal volume” is not small: he needs to be fed glucose water and milk every 2 hours, and the milk can easily drink 20-30 milliliters at a time.
“It’s so rare for such a heavy newborn .” The news spread immediately in the hospital. Many patients and their families in the delivery room came to see the fat boy, and the giant baby suddenly became the “focus figure”.
At about 4 pm on February 22, Nie Junying, who was more than 39 weeks pregnant, developed premature rupture of the membrane and then performed cesarean section.
At the moment when the child’s head came out, he still looked at the doctors who delivered him.
“My face is so big and my cry is so loud. I think it must be more than 4 kilograms in my arms.
The midwife said that she weighed 5.
25 kilograms, 54 centimeters in length, and the child scored 9 or more on various indicators.
Huge children are actually not a good thing. “Medical babies over 4 kg are generally referred to as giants. At present, babies over 4 kg are not uncommon, but 5 kg or more are still rare.
According to Cai Min, the obstetrics director and deputy chief physician of the hospital, the weight of a newborn is generally between 3 kg and 3.
5 kg is the most ideal, if it weighs more than 4 kg, it will bring production risks.
In addition, giant children are more likely to develop diabetes and high blood pressure than adults with normal weight.
”In the past, if someone’s son weighed more than 4 kilograms, that would definitely be big news nearby.
Cai Min said, but now how often will the delivery of huge children, if it does not exceed 5 kg, it does not feel like news.
In the past, it was necessary to tell pregnant women that more nutrition should be added during pregnancy, but now they are told that they should pay attention to “weight loss”.
Has the baby’s weight changed?
Data show that in recent years, the birth rate of the city’s giant children has increased year by year.
There were 81 children born in the city’s maternity and child health hospitals alone in 2009, which increased to 117 last year.
And in January of this year, 19 giants have already “fallen to the ground.”
Regarding the increase in huge children year by year, Cai Min also believes that the number of people who have children today is more than 80, and the post-80s have better living conditions and a lot of improvement. The children born in this group must be heavier than the children 20 years ago.
In response to this situation, many medical experts said that China’s infant weight standards are still 20 years ago, which is somewhat out of touch with the status quo, the infant weight standards may need to be changed.
As for how the standard should be changed, experts believe that a scientific average can be taken after the newborn information is summarized.
