Morbidly obese baby weighs as much as a four year old

This cute little baby is only eight months but weighs as much as a four year old.
Doctors have confessed that they have no idea how Chahat Kumar, an eight-month-old baby came to weigh the same as a child of four
 Metro UK,reports that Chahat Kumar was born an average weight baby, but as the months went by, she  become morbidly obese,.She now weighs almost three stone.
Her parents who live in Punjab, India, have taken her to the doctor to try to help her, but medical staff complained of their inability  to take blood samples because of the levels of fat and because her skin is harder than that of other children.

According to her parents,their little daughter has the appetite of a much older child. 
‘When Chahat was born, she was completely normal,’ her dad Suraj Kumar, 23, said.
 Then, slowly we saw that her weight was shooting up.Her weight is increasing day by day
Her mum Reena, 21, said: ‘Before Chahat, we had a son who died, and then Chahat was born. I am concerned about her health.’
‘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.’
‘It’s not our fault. God gave this condition to her,’ Suraj said. ‘It’s not in our hands. I feel bad when some people laugh at her for being fat.’

The family doctor Vasudev Sharma said they had tried ‘many times’ to do a blood test but: ‘Her skin is so hard that we can’t ever diagnose her condition.’
 A doctor recommended the family see a pediatric specialist in Amritsar but unfortunately they have been unablego because of lack of funds
