Smallest baby ever born at NMCSD finally gets to go home

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A joyful homecoming for the smallest baby ever born at the Naval Medical Center San Diego.

Little Jayce Odin Boelk was born on October 11, weighing only 13 ounces and measuring 10 and a quarter inches long.

The son of Marine Corporal Monica Lovings and former Marine Corporal Allen Boelk spent more than four months in the hospital.

The NICU staff keeps "micro-preemies" like Jayce in the hospital until their original due date to make sure they can breathe on their own, maintain body temperature, eat and gain weight.
