21 Weeker Headed for Home
World's most premature baby is thriving, Miami hospital says
The world's most premature living baby, born at 21 weeks and six days, is headed home after spending four months in a neonatal intensive care unit, Baptist Children's Hospital in Miami announced...Those of you who've been reading my blog for a while know that Anya was a preemie. She was born at 24 weeks, weighing one pound, eight ounces. So, compared to baby Amillia, Anya was a giant! I'm just so glad that this family's story is having a happy ending! It's a miracle!
When she was born on October 24, Amillia Taylor weighed just 280 grams (10 ounces) and measured 240 centimeters (9.5 inches,) slightly longer than a ballpoint pen, the hospital said.
