Zara and Mike Tindall had a baby girl weighing 9lb 3oz in June – Daily Mail



Zara (pictured inset) and Mike Tindall’s baby Lena Elizabeth weighed in at 9lb 3oz. Across the country babies are getting bigger and bigger — and it’s not always big women having these big babies. A 10lb baby, once something of an oddity, is now not unusual. In the post-war years, as diets and health care have improved, there has been a steady upward trend in birth weight, pushing the current average birth weight to 7lb 8oz for boys and 7lb 4oz for girls — up 2oz and 1½oz respectively since 1970. The average takes in the fact that more premature babies survive nowadays, too. And at the other end of the scale, the number of 10lb babies has soared.
