UK’s smallest baby being cuddled with dad is so warm

This is the touching moment one of the smallest babies ever born in the UK to  survive has her first ever cuddle with her dad.

Tiny Macey Micklethwaite, from Worcester, was barely bigger than her dad’s hand when she was born weighing just 551g.  What makes her survival even more miraculous is that her dad Rhys, had been in a  ʜᴏʀʀɪFɪᴄ motorbike ᴄʀᴀsʜ  just weeks before – and had cheated ᴅᴇᴀᴛʜ by a second. So when mum Karen Dawkins, 33, discovered she was 18 weeks pregnant, the couple were thrilled. But just over a month later, Karen went into ᴘʀᴇᴍᴀᴛᴜʀᴇ labour – and medics wагпed the couple it was unlikely their new daughter would survive.

‘When she was born she was the size of my hand.  I look back at photos and think how un-baby-like she looks, but at the time I thought ”wow, what a baby. She ʙᴀᴛᴛʟᴇᴅ through so much. I feel so lucky to have her and that time was my birthday the day after I had her, and the birth was a joyous occasion. I would say it was the best day of my life”. Mom said

She was five month’s old before she was finally allowed to go home. When she waseight-months-old, she weighed 8.5lbs – just over the average weight of a full-term newborn. She is just a normal baby. She is small but catching others up. Health and development wise she is on tгасk.

‘It’s аmаzіпɡ how much she has ʙᴀᴛᴛʟᴇᴅ through.’

The family was supported by the charity Cots for Tots, which raises funds for ʟɪFe-sᴀᴠɪɴɢ equipment for ᴘʀᴇᴍᴀᴛᴜʀᴇ infants and provides free accommodation to parents and siblings of babies at St Michael’s. She’s now fundraising for them as she is so thankful for the help she received.
