Amazing survival story of a baby born three months prematurely

A baby who was born 14 weeks prematurely and weighing about the same size as a small bag of sugar has made a miraculous recovery.

Ethan Bird is winning his bitter battle to survive after he was born when his mother was just 26 weeks pregnant and weighed just 1lb 1oz.

According to DailyMail

After he was born nearly three months early via emergency Caesarean section on December 5, the newborn has been kept inside a hospital.

But he has managed to gain vital weight and strength - and miraculously survived without any physical side-effects after his premature birth.
Doctors thought the frail baby needed an operation on his heart - but miraculously his organ has healed itselfethan
Now, after four months of fighting to put on wight and gain strength, baby Ethan has taken a big step closer to finally going home to Filby, near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.

Ethan, who now weighs a much healthier 6lb 10oz, has been moved out of the neo-natal intensive care unit at Norwich and Norfolk University Hospital (NNUH).
