The smallest child born in the UK, was discharged from the hospital six months later. According to the information portal News.com newborn baby weighed like a can of Coca-Cola.
Theo Taylor (Theo Taylor) was born in March, and it weighs 340 grams. The doctor gave my mother who gave birth to him in the 26th week of pregnancy, disappointing forecasts, because at 19 weeks he stopped growing in the womb. The child’s father Jay told me that the day before the birth of his son, his wife suggested abortion. “He’s a little fighter. Before he was born, I found it very hard to constantly hear that he will not survive, and after the birth I kept saying we’ll take him home,” said the mother of a baby 24-year-old Katie Taylor. She confessed that along with her husband did everything possible and not become discouraged.
Only two weeks after the birth the doctor for the first time given to parents to hold the baby. “I’ve never seen such young children. I didn’t know they came that small. He was smaller than my hand,” added Jay, and admitted that at first was very scared.
In six months the baby was finally able to be discharged from the hospital. Doctors believe that the boy is unlikely to experience complications, which usually occur in preterm infants. In my six months in Theo weighs as much as a healthy child.
