Eli the cute baby was born on March 4th, 2015 in Alabama and when his mother saw him the first time, he looked like this…
1/ Meet the One month old, Eli.
With one look, his mother realised that he had no nose.
2/ Picture of baby Eli was taken right after he was born.
3/ Although babies with congenital arhinia like Eli rarely survive due to breathing and feeding difficulties, this little hero started breathing pretty soon after his birth.
Doctors performed a tracheotomy on Eli when he was five days old, and they have been using assisted feeding techniques to keep him healthy.
4/ Only 43 cases of Arhinia have been reported world wide and baby Eli has been one of the healthiest babies with the condition so far.
5/ And then, he was also ready to go home with his mother.
