19 Kids and Counting: Michelle Duggar Cradles 2-Pound Baby Josie
"Momma's here. She looks so big to me," Michelle, 43, coos to Josie, who is 47 days old and still hospitalized in the clip.A nurse from the intensive care unit explains that Josie now weighs 2 lbs., 3 1/2 oz.
"She eats breast milk that mom has pumped and we have, and she gets it continuously at six milliliters an hour, which is about a teaspoon an hour," the nurse says.
Before getting to hold her Michelle attempts to put a purple bow on her head, until she realizes that the tiny baby's head IV is in the way.
