Tiniest baby on record
The smallest surviving baby on record was born
at the Loyola University Medical Center on September 19th. She was born one of twins at only 8.6 oz
beating the previous record holder weighing in at only 9.9 oz. Eighteen of the twenty
surviving smallest babies are female. This did not surprise Neonatologist Dr.
Jonathan Muraskas who said that, “Boys
are the weaker sex. Girls do better developmentally."
