Did you know the youngest baby to survive was only 22 weeks gestational? And other fun stuff =) This will give you something to talk about!

Wow that is young! She was born in Miami, Florida at only 10 ounces! The mother had to lie about the baby's age because it is Florida law not to resuscitate a baby under 23 weeks. Thank God that mother was strong enough to lie for her daughter and fight the doctors telling her there was no chance. She made them take care of her daughter and now at 5 months old she is healthy and growing, with no known long term effects!


Some other fun facts:
Youngest to walk- 6 months
Youngest to talk comprehensively- 3 months
Youngest Mother- 5 years old
Oldest Mother- 70 (she had twins!)
Youngest Father- 8
Oldest Father- 90 (with his 21st child!)
Most children by one women- 69, 67 survived infancy (16 sets twins, 7 sets triplets, 4 sets quads)
Most children by one man-867 (342 daughters, 525 sons)

(I can give details on any of them if you want =))

  • I looked it up and 21 weeks was the youngest anyone had on record. If there is one younger I apologize for misleading you, I'd love to hear how young!

  • This is also not including those who were born and died a day or two later, it is out of all those who survived.

  • She was a Peruvian girl, she had a rare condition that caused her to begin puberty at the age of 8 months, she was then molested and raped at 5. Her parents did not know, they though when her belly began to grow that she had a stomach tumor. When she was about 6 months along her parents took her to the hospital to have the "tumor" looked at. They discovered it was a baby, they then performed an emergency c-section. She gave birth to her 5lb 15ounce son, Gerardo, on Mother's day, May 14, 1939.
