One of the world's smallest babies weighed just 0.88lb

Baby born weighing just 400 grams is 'one of the smallest ever to survive'

The smallest baby ever born is thought to be Emilia Grabarczyk, who was born weighing 8oz in Witten, Germany, in 2015.

Doctors say Manushi, born on June 15 at a hospital in India, is progressing well - her brain is structurally normal and her eyes are developing normally.

She was born to a couple who was married for 35 years.

Mum Seeta suffered dangerously high blood pressure during her pregnancy with an ultrasound revealing an absence of blood flow to the foetus.

After the extensive medical care, she got discharged from the hospital after getting six months old.

"She's just fought and fought and fought against all the odds, but she's made it", Seeta said.

Manushi, the baby girl defied all odds of medicine by surviving at just 400 gms after her premature birth in Udaipur.

International Olympic Committee to decide on N.Korea in 2018 Winter Games
In April 2017, South Korea allowed the North Korean team to travel to the South for the Women's World Championships in ice hockey. Cross-country skiers and speed skaters are understood to be among those who could benefit.

Sunil Janged, the neonatologist who led doctors and nursing staff at the Jivanta Children's Hospital in the effort to ensure the survival of the child, said that Manushi was the smallest newborn baby to survive in South Asia.

The baby required artificial breathing support to regularize her breathing and then she was quickly transferred to Jivanta Neonatal ICU. She was able to digest milk by 7 weeks of her life and able to drink from spoon after four and a half month. As she was struggling to breathe, she was shifted to the neontal intensive care unit (NICU) and put on ventilator to expand her tiny and immature lungs.

"We had to start the baby on total parenteral nutrition, which basically means giving all the essential nutrients such as amino acids, carbohydrates, minerals and multivitamins directly into blood circulation [sic]".

She also underwent blood transfusions and had her respiratory support temporarily turned off, leading to her holding her breath in her sleep.

In all, she was in the NICU for nearly 210 days and on Thursday, when she was discharged, her weight was close to 2400 grams.

Manushi's medical treatment would have normally cost 1 million rupees ($15,700/£11,500), but due to her family's low income, Jivanta Children's Hospital chose to massively reduce the bill. Especially in the state like Rajasthan where female baby abortions are so prevalent, this step is very necessary to raise awareness and stop the bad practice.

"We are grateful to Seeta and her family and we appreciate them for setting a new example for the community". Rajasthan where the girls, still considered a burden, are thrown into the trash immediately after birth or are left in the orphanage.
