London, Sep 24: The world’s smallest girl is just 68 cm tall and weighs less than nine pounds or 4 kg, and is no bigger than a newborn and smaller than her favourite teddy, the Daily Mail reported Monday.
Last week, Charlotte Garside joined kids her own age in the classroom for the first time.
The day marked a milestone for proud parents Scott Garside and Emma Newman who have battled to give their daughter as normal a life as possible.
The five-year-old was born with a form of Primordial Dwarfism so rare doctors don’t even have a name for it.
“She may be small but she has a massive personality and wants to do everything a normal five-year-old does,” her motehr said.
“She is very inquisitive and the school have already told us she has a learning age of a three-year-old, which is higher than we thought,” she added.
When she was born, Charlotte weighed less than two pounds, measured 25 cm and had to be dressed in dolls’ clothes.
Emma carried the tiny baby around in the front pocket of her hoodie and put her in nappies the size of a credit card.
