Eight-Month-Old Baby Balloons To A Whopping 38lbs And Her Parents Blame It On God,

A baby girl weighs 2st 10lbs due to her constant cravings for food - but is piling on even more pounds as the days go by. 



Chahat Kumar, eight months, from Punjab, India, weighs a similar amount to that of a four-year-old.

Her parents blame it on 'God' and her quadruple-sized portions of food, but they deny any responsibility over her diet.

Doctors are confused as to what is causing her insatiable appetite, and are growing increasingly worried about her health.

She now struggles to breathe and even sleep as a result of her excessive weight caused by eating like a '10-year-old', local reports suggest.

Chahat also suffers from abnormally hard skin that makes taking her blood samples to analyse her condition more difficult.

But the family lack the crucial funds needed to travel further afield to get advanced medical treatment.

She started to put on an excessive amount of weight when she turned four months old, despite being born normal-sized.

Her father, Suraj Kumar, 23, 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.

'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.'

Chahat's mother Reena, 21, is worried about her daughter's health after she lost her first baby in childbirth.

She explained: 'Before Chahat, we had a son who died, and then Chahat was born. I am concerned about her health.


'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.' '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.

The family doctor, Vasudev Sharma, confirmed that the difficulty with taking blood samples has made a medical diagnosis very difficult.

He said: 'This is the first case I've seen in my life where a child's weight has been shooting up so much four to five months after birth.

She now struggles to breathe and even sleep as a result of her excessive weight caused by eating like a '10-year-old', local reports suggest

'But the blood test couldn't be carried out because the fat on the baby's body was too much, and because of that, the blood test wasn't done properly.

'We have tried it many times. Her skin is so hard that we can't ever diagnose her condition.'

Dr Sharma has recommended the family visit a specialist at the Civil Hospital in Amritsar, but the family's financial restraints has so far made this impossible.

But Dr Sharma is certain that Chahat's growing size needs to be addressed. He said: 'Her weight is increasing excessively and it has to be controlled. She has to eat less. She eats like a 10-year-old kid.'

And while the family continue to search for answers, Reena dreams of her daughter having a brighter, lighter future.

She said: 'We want Chahat to be able to play like normal kids. We don't want her to have difficulties in the future. We want a good future for her.'

They should be timing her food and don't yield to her cravings

LadyPrecious said...

Awwww she looks so cute. God please heal her of this condition and the parents should give her fruits and veggies instead of food. I think putting her on a good diet may help. They need to see a Dietician to help them before doctors find a solution. She looks even fatter than both the Father, mother and the doctor.

Chameleon said...

No nah!!! For a baby this reply is too harsh and uncalled for. if the mother reads your comment how do u think she'll feel. Mothers prefer you abuse them than talk ill of their child no matter the situation.Wait till you give birth and you'll understand why you can't can't be harsh to babies.

Kwikwi said...

All I see in that plate is bread bread and more bread. No fruits or veges to give the child in between? I wonder how god became the culprit in this situation.

If I was available I won't even date the brainless bitches on this blog.....do you people even process your thoughts and consult your brains before you type? Becky and kidjo.....your comments irritated most....it's obvious this child has a medical condition that needs to be checked....these are poor Indians and the Indian diet is not a fat full diet per se and also they eat a lot of spices...so how much food or what type do u think they will give this baby to make her this fat? Anyway I pray they get help to find out the root cause....

Thks o Anon 13:00, femoral tap shld be enough for blood sample o, Venous cut down, central venous catheterisation shld be for giving colloids and crystalloids.

I have read abt this b4.same Indian children (3) from same parents eating n growing fat. The reason was said that ders a particular hormone in d brain(i don't knw d name) dat detects when the stomach is full but d children don't have it. So dey kip on eating.

Tessbaby said...

Should an 8mth old be eating solids. I can see her eating that their japati flat bread
She definitely has a medical condition or her tyroid is out of wack. Causing excessive hunger and slow metabolism.
They should try and be giving her fruit and veggie smoothie to fill her up.
She needs immediate medical attention she has a medical condition called polyphagia. Iv watched a docu on it before.

Why are they blaming God.

If that child is fed 4 times daily, she won't die. She will only shed buckets of tears which is normal.

Chameleon said...

Thanks Stella for deleting her insensitive comment. Don't try it next time Kidjo even your godmothers on this blog would never comment irresponsibly

Exactly how did you arrive at your assertion? Just another hear-say and because of medical tourism industry in India?

You are foolish. You think it's everyone on this blog that is a baby that doesnt have a home and kids looking for bf.
Your ignorance self should google the symptoms of thyroid issues.
Weight gain and inability to loose weight. Oprah dealt with tyroid issues before.
