Baby Outgrowing Worlds Smallest Mother

The world’s smallest mother has spoken out about the difficulties of caring for a son who is about to outgrow her in size at just 14 months of age…

The world’s smallest mother has spoken out about the difficulties of caring for a son who is about to outgrow her.

Amanda Moore, 25, of Hinckley, Leicestershire, England, risked her life to give birth to baby Aidan.

Suffering from the rare bone disease osteogenesis imperfecta – a condition more commonly known as brittle bone disorder – Amanda was born with 14 broken bones. The rare condition stunted her growth at 3ft 1in (0.9m) and left her unable to stand.

Doctors had advised her that becoming pregnant could be fatal.

But luckily, Aidan was born weighing 5lbs 5oz and had not inherited his mother’s bone condition.

Now at just 14 months old, Aidan stands 2ft 6in (0.7m), weighs 22lbs (9.9kg) – almost half his mother’s four stones (25.4kg) – and is already taller than is mother when she is seated.

Ms Moore said: “Now he’s walking he’s more than a handful for someone my size.”

She said she believes Aidan could end up being as tall as his father, Steven Fyfe, 20, who is 6ft 1in (1.8m).
Ms Moore added:

“When I sit on the floor to play with him, he is taller than me already and he’s only 14 months old…

“He’s getting so big and strong that soon we’ll have to tell him to be gentle with Mummy…

“It’s been a struggle because he’s been running rings around me since he was crawling…

“Most boys are bigger than their mums but not after a year…

“Soon Aidan will be bigger than me and we are working out how I can move him around the house in my chair while Steven is at work.”

The couple said they have not ruled out having another child. Mr Fyfe said:

“It’s been a struggle but Aidan is doing so well…

“He’s a big boy and will soon be much bigger than his mother…

“When Amanda became pregnant doctors told us she or the baby could die, or even both of them…

“But they are both fighting fit and we are a very lucky family.”
