This 10-Month-Old Baby Weighs As Much As A 9-Year-Old

What could have led to this? A 10-month-old baby weighs as much as a nine-year-old at a massive four stone and 10 pounds.

The unique baby, Luis Manuel, weighed a normal healthy weight when he was born at seven pounds and 11 onces, but since then he has piled on the pounds to the surprise of his parents.

His parents suspect the tot, who has struggled to breathe because of his super rapid weight gain, suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome.

It is a genetic disorder and means those affected are permanently hungry.

His mother Isabel Pantoja said: "After only one month we noticed that clothes did not fit him and we had to dress him in clothes for a one-year-old, and even a two-year-old. We saw our baby gain weight so fast. Sometimes, he could not sleep because he felt like he was suffocating due to his weight."

Luis' parents have now launched a fundraising campaign to pay for his treatment if his diagnosis is confirmed by doctors in Tecoman, Mexico. Treatment reportedly costing more than £400.
