People often use the term “big baby” for a variety of reasons, but an Arizona couple may legitimately use the term to describe their newborn!


According to Carey and Tim Petoney, their newborn Finlay was born on October 4 at Banner Thunderbird Hospital. Finlay was born at 38 weeks, and weighed 14lbs, 1oz.

To put the weight in perspective, University of Michigan Health Officials Assume that the average birth weight of babies is about 7.5 pounds, with a weight between 5.5 pounds and 10 pounds considered normal.

Patonais believes Finnley Banner may be one of the eldest babies ever to be born in Thunderbird, but hospital officials are working to confirm this. Carey said that Finlay has already become a little bit of a celebrity in the hospital.

Petonas said his newborn child is expected to be discharged from the hospital on October 9. Carey said that Finlay is her third child, and that Finlay was born after 19 miscarriages since 2008.
