XINING, CHINA - MAY 17:  (CHINA OUT) Nurses and parents massage newborn babies at Xining Children Hospital on May 17, 2006 in Xining of Qinghai Province, China. Chinese population experts are predicting a mini-baby boom before 2010 as a result of the country's family planning laws. Almost 100 million single children have been born since the initiation of the one-child policy in 1973. Most have reached the age of marriage and childbirth, said Zhang Weiqing, Minister in charge of the National Population and Family Planning Commission. Statistics from the China National Center for Women and Children's Health reveal that the country's annual population growth will increase from 16 million to 22 million by 2016. There are currently about 110 million children under the age of six in China, 21 million living in cities, according to state media.  (Photo by China Photos/Getty Images)
