WATCH | 'I gave birth to a toddler': Mom had a 'whopping' 6kg baby

A US mom by the online name of @shans1588 went massively viral after posting about her incredible birth experience. 

"At 38 weeks and one day, I had my second son via C-section by two doctors," she began the now-viral video, sharing how her son came out at weighing more than 6 kilograms. 

He was so big that hospital staff did not have the right supplies for him, she said further.

"The NICU did not even have diapers for him or clothes.... he came home in clothing [for babies aged] 6-9 months," she said. 

The mom later shared images of her now 5-year-old boy, revealing he's "healthy, stubborn and strong".
