South Idaho baby born at 24 weeks ‘doing really good’

July 3, 2017 GMT

TWIN FALLS — After nearly four months in the hospital, a baby born weighing just one pound will likely head home to Hansen soon.

Rainna Crabb was born in March at 24 weeks old at St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center in Twin Falls. She weighed just 1 lb., 1 ounce and was 11 inches long.

She was flown to St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital Newborn Intensive Care Unit in Boise. Parents Samantha and Steven Crabb have been staying with their daughter.

Crabb’s original due date was July 2. She doesn’t have a hospital release date yet, said Hazelton resident Kindra Perez, the baby’s aunt.

“She’s doing really good,” Perez said Friday. “So hopefully she’ll get to come home within the next couple of weeks.”

As of last week, Rainna weighed 5 pounds, 6 ounces — up significantly from her birth weight.
