Doctors in India can’t understand why this 8-month old baby girl is weight 38 pounds, the same weight of a 4-year old child.
The Dr. said that even though the baby was born healthy and at a normal weight, she now has a huge appetite and has “ballooned” to the size she is now.

“It’s not our fault,” Suaji, the dad, told The Sun. “God gave this condition to her. It’s not in our hands. I feel bad when some people laugh t her for being fat.”
The baby has another problem too, the Drs cannot draw blood from the infant because she has an abnormally thick skin.
Her mother said, “We don’t have enough money for her treatment, but we do our best to make sure she gets well.”
Her pediatrician, Dr. Sharma said that the wants the family take the baby to specialist, but he knows that the family can’t financially afford to do that.
“Her weight is increasing excessively, and it as to be controlled,” the Dr said. “She has to eat less. She eats like a 10-year old kid.”
They’re reporting the baby is having breathing issues from the weight she’s carrying and her mom said, “We don’t want her to have difficulties in the future. We want a good future for her.”
