- Chahat Kumar weighs a similar amount to that of an average-sized four-year-old
- But doctors are confused as to what is causing her constant cravings for food
- She now struggles to breathe and even sleep as a result of her excessive weight
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.’
