The world’s smallest baby boy has finally gone home after staying in a hospital Intensive Care Unit for five months.

At the time of birth in August 2018, he could fit in both palms of an adult’s hands and weighed slightly more than a grapefruit.
The unidentified boy weighed 9.45 ounces at birth, the Keio University Hospital in Tokyo said.

Dr. Takeshi Arimitsu, who treated the baby, told CNN that when the infant was born, he needed a ventilator for respiratory support and an umbilical catheter for infusion therapy.
The infant’s weight breaks the previous record of a German boy weighing 9.67 ounces in 2009.
