An eight-month-old baby in Punjab is raising concerns because of her extreme weight gain. Chahat weighs a whopping 17 kg and suffers from breathing and sleeping problems because of the obesity.

According to reports, she was born healthy without much complications, but started gaining weight as she turned four-months-old.

The baby reportedly has an insatiable appetite and cries whenever she's not being fed.

Her parents also mentioned that doctors have not been able to get her blood samples because her skin is abnormally thick. Chahat's family does not have the financial ability to give her medical treatment.
