LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The newborn boy was born premature at 24 weeks, in August, by an emergency c-section in Tokoyo, Japan. According to Mirror, the baby stopped growing in the womb and his doctors feared his life might be in danger.

After being born, he spent the first few months of his life living in a hospital incubator. By the grace of God, the Keio hospital was able to manage the infant's breathing and nutrition for several months. He grew to a wonderful seven pounds was able to start being breastfed by his mother. 

"I want people to know that babies can return home vigorous even if they are born small," expressed Dr Takeshi Arimitsu to Kyodo News, according to Mirror.

The tiny baby boy was able to finally go home in February, after spending six months in the hospital. 

According to the Tiniest Babies Registry website, only 23 babies ever have been able to survive being born under one pound at birth. But after miracle cases like this, the doctors who treated the baby hope his story will provide hope to other families with premature babies.
