245 grams. Hospital reveals birth of the smallest baby in the world - Actuality


"They told my husband that he would have an hour with her and then he would die, but that time turned into two, and these two, one day, and then a week," her mother said in a video posted by the hospital.

He was tall, weighing 2.26 kg and 40 cm, in good health, according to a hospital statement.

Saybie became the smallest newborn in the world to survive childbirth, according to the University of Iowa registry.

His birth weight, which equaled that of a large apple, was 7 grams smaller than that of the baby who had held the record, born in Germany.

"Every life is a miracle, but those who challenge the possibilities are even more so," Edward Bell, a pediatrician with the record, told AFP.

"I feel blessed," said the mother. "It's the smallest baby in the world and it's mine!"
