Tiniest baby goes home to family

HAMILTON, ON, Oct. 18, 2013 /CNW/ - The smallest surviving baby born in Hamilton, Ont. went home this week from McMaster Children's Hospital to her Niagara Falls family.

Baby Rachel Blythin was born June 3 at 330 grams, so small she wore doll clothes.

Rachel was attached in utero to her identical twin Evelyn through twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, pumping blood and nutrients to Evelyn, leaving Rachel little room to grow. Fearing for Rachel's life, doctors delivered the twins at 28 weeks. Both babies are doing well.
