DES MOINES, Iowa — A baby who weighed 13 ounces at birth died Monday morning, the infant's family said.
"He came to teach us the real meaning of love and strength," Ellonn Smartt, Jaden's mother, told the television station.
Jaden had grown to 1.1 pounds by July 28 and was tolerating breast milk, the newspaper reported. He no longer needed insulin injections and was in stable condition as recently as Wednesday, according to the Register.
