Melinda Star Guido, The parents of a child considered to be the third-smallest baby ever born are looking forward to bringing their newborn home in about three weeks. “I’m looking forward to going out for picnics, spoiling her like any other dad,” said father Yovani Guido, of Granada Hills. “She’s getting big. She’s going to get bigger and bigger. I feel more confident she’s going to make it.”
Melinda Star Guido was born 16 weeks early on Aug. 30. She weighed just 9 1/2 ounces.
Global Birth Registry figures show that Melinda is the third-smallest baby ever born, weighing less than a can of soda and roughly the same as two iPhones, according to officials at LA County-USC Healthcare Network. She is believed to be the second-smallest baby ever born in the United States.
She now weighs a little more than 4 pounds.
“She just looks like a fighter — really feisty, always moving around, laughing,” said mother Haydee Ibarra. “She has really chunky cheeks. She looks like her dad.”
