When 37-year-old Sharon Grant was forced to have an emergency C-section three months before her due date because her daughter had stopped growing, she was rightfully concerned. Pixie Griffiths-Grant was born at 28 weeks at 1.1 pounds and doctors didn't expect her live longer than an hour. But they tried something amazing—they wrapped her body in a plastic bag and then in bubble wrap, in an attempt to mimic conditions in the womb. It worked. Five months old, Pixie now weighs 7.5 pounds and is living happily with her mom and dad.
