Baby boy Bailey was born three months before his due date and was very tiny. At the time of his birth, the 2lb 6oz baby also had chronic lung disease and caught E.coli. He was put on a ventilator to fight off the battle. Bailey's parents bought him a cute teddy octopus to cuddle him in his crib when they could not, due to COVID rules. The cuddly toy was bigger than Bailey at that time, but now after 6 months the baby is healthy, happy, and can easily tower over his pal as seen in the picture.

#1 This beautiful baby boy was born three months early and was so tiny that even his teddy octopus dwarfed him

Bailey Appleyard was born three months before the due date and was indeed a miracle to his parents. The baby had to fight for his life when mommy Clair Felstead, 25, went into labour at only 25 weeks and six days.

This picture was taken when Bailey was born and it shows the size of the baby as compared to his cuddly stuff toy.

#2 But now after six months, Bailey is big enough to tuck his cuddle partner under his arm

The mommy Clair and daddy Jordan, 25, bought the baby an eight-legged pal to cuddle him in his crib as they were not allowed to due to COVID19 rules. 

Little Bailey turned out to be a fighter and is back home with his parents in Leighton, Cheshire. He is now six months old and weighs 16lb.
