A morbidly obese baby has baffled doctors as she tips the scales at nearly THREE stone.
Chahat Kumar was born an average weight but started ballooning in size at the age of four months.
Now eight months old, the bouncing baby weighs in at 38lbs (2.7 stones) – the same as an average four-year-old.
Dad Suraj Kumar, 23, from from Punjab, India, said: “When Chahat was born, she was completely normal. Then, slowly we saw that her weight was shooting up.
“Her weight is increasing day by day.”
Worried Reena, who lost her first baby in childbirth, estimates that Chahat eats four times the amount of food of a normal-sized child her age.
She said: “She doesn’t eat like a normal kid. She keeps eating all the time. If we don’t give her anything to eat, she starts crying.
“She cries to go out but her weight is too much and we are not able to pick her up. So we only take her to nearby places.”
Chahat’s parents deny that her extreme weight gain has anything to do with her upbringing.
Dad Suraj said: “It’s not our fault. God gave this condition to her. It’s not in our hands. I feel bad when some people laugh at her for being fat.” Read More from source
