Smallest Baby Ever Born
Amillia Taylor is the world’s youngest premature baby ever to survive. She was born two weeks before the legal abortion limit at just 9.5 inches long and less than 10 ounces with skin which tore like rice paper.
The baby was due on March 4, 2007, but, from the start, the pregnancy was fraught with problems and she had been born at just 21 weeks and six days.
According to Amillia’s mother, “I was so shocked, because her skin was so translucent that she was see-through. I could see the veins in her arms, hands and legs, and I could actually watch her lungs as they moved.
‘Amillia’s hand was the size of my thumbnail, and her leg the same length as my little finger.
‘I longed to reach out and touch her, just to stroke her and try to take away her pain. All I could do was sit and tell her that Mummy was here, that I loved her, and that everything would be alright.”
Just have a look how Amillia was.

Its incredible. When my first child was born 24 weekers only had a 50/50 chance of survival, now they are almost guaranteed to survive thanks to all the technology available. 23 and 22 weekers surviving are becoming more and more heard of. 21 weeks though? Incredible!
