(S.D.)-Tiny Baby Born In Rapid City
RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A tiny baby is a big deal at Rapid City Regional Hospital.
At 1 pound, 9 ounces, Brielle Alexandra Taylor is one of the smallest babies ever born there.
Mom Nirelle Taylor says that Brielle was due Dec. 18 but was born Sept. 1.
Her hands and feet are just bigger than a penny and her diapers are half the size of normal newborns.
Taylor says the focus now is keeping her stable and making sure her oxygen levels are OK. She says she can stick her hands in the incubator to hold Brielle's hand but can't rub her because her skin is too thin.
