World’s smallest baby goes home


The world’s smallest baby has left Tokyo’s Keio University Hospital and is headed home. 

At birth, the baby boy weighed just 268 grams, that’s a little bit over half a pound. After five months of nutrition management, the baby’s weight is now up to seven pounds-two ounces.

He became the world’s smallest baby boy to be sent home healthy. 

Before that, the record was held by a male infant in Germany who weighed 274 grams at his birth in 2009.
