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'

Neonatologist Sunil Janged, who led a team of doctors and nursing staff for ensuring the girl's incredible survival, claimed that she was the smallest newborn baby to survive in India and South Asia.

Seeta was born in 2017 to a couple who were married for 35 years and had not conceived naturally. However, when Manushi was born, she was not breathing, had paper-thin skin, underdeveloped organs and just 8.6in long. Seeta was born to a couple married for 35 years and was in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Jivanta Children's Hospital in Udaipur for nearly 210 days, was discharged on Thursday, after weighing close to 2.4kg.

Her mother, 48-year-old Seeta, and father, 50-year-old Giriraj, said: "She's just fought and fought and fought against all the odds, but she's made it".

Manushi arrived early by an emergency C-section in Rajasthan, after her mum Seeta's blood pressure rocketed, putting her life in danger. Her weight was only 14 ounce (400 grams). "The biggest challenge for our team was to prevent any infection to her and our team managed it very well", said Dr. Janged.

The hospital waved most of the family's medical costs due to their low income, according to the report. She was not breathing when she was born, but the couple chose to fight to keep her alive. The tiny baby also needed respiratory support on and off because she used to hold breath when sleeping.

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

Within seven weeks little Manushi was able to start taking her mother's breast milk.

Hospital director Dr Sunil Janged added: "We chose to save the life of the baby and offer her necessary medical care and attention because we wanted to send out a message that a girl child must be protected". The baby was finally discharged from the hospital on Thursday. After spending 210 days in the neonatal ICU, she was given to her parents weighing a healthy 5.29 pounds. By her fourth month, she was able to drink from spoon. "Her organs are functioning perfectly and she is looking so lovely and so active", gushed Dr Janged when speaking to us.

Manushi's parents have termed her a real-life miracle. The 2011 India census data indicates there were 914 girls for every 1,000 boys under age 7, according to the BBC.

"We are grateful to Seeta and her family and we appreciate them for setting a new example for the community".
