The first baby of 2023 in Sarasota was delivered less than a half-hour into the new year.

Kaiden was delivered at 12:29 a.m. Jan 1, Sarasota Memorial Hospital said. The boy was 20 inches long and 6.5 pounds.

The hospital did not release last names but said Kaiden and his mom, Julie, were doing fine and preparing to come home for a birthday celebration with his family and big sister, 4-year-old Aiyanna.

“It’s great to start the New Year this way,” Julie said. “It’s going to be different and fun celebrating his birthday every year.”

The mother-baby nursing team at SMH-Sarasota presented Julie with a special New Year’s baby basket filled with gifts for Kaiden and the family.
