A baby boy born in Toyko who now weighs just 3.238KG has finally left hospital to go with his parents.

The baby was born weighing just 268 grams, incredibly that’s under 10 ounces, the weight of a big apple, when he was delivered at 24 weeks.

It’s believed the baby stopped growing for some unknown reason when still in the womb, but thankfully he made great strides since he was born.

The little bundle of joy was nursed, minded and cared for at Keio University Hospital in Toyko for the past 5 months.

Day in and day out, nurses and doctors cared for the little fella helping him grow and live.

He’s not feeding as normal and doctors say will grow on to be a happy and healthy child.

His parents are said to be absolutely over the moon… and why wouldn’t they be!
Well done to all concerned!
