A baby born in Germany has broken all the records with its unusually large size. Baby Jasleen was born in Leipzig and weighs 13 pounds, 5 ounces (6 kg).

Jasleen is the largest baby ever born in the country without a C-section. She measures 22.6 inches (57.4 cm) in height, Huffington Post reports.

The child falls under the "fetal macrosomia" category, a term used to describes babies weighing over 8 pounds, 13 ounces (4 kg).

Their size is usually brought on by a congenital disease, which in this case is gestational diabetes. The mother's obesity could also influence a baby's weight.

The title for the heaviest baby in Germany was previously held by Jihad, weighing 13 pounds (5.9 kg). The all-time Guinness World Record was held by Anna Bates, born at 23 pounds (10.4 kg) in 1879.
