8-Month-Old Baby in Colombia Weighs Over 50 Pounds!

An 8-month-old baby living in Bogota, Colombia is being placed on a strict diet!

ABC News reports that baby Santiago currently weighs as much as the average 5-year-old...a whopping 55 pounds! For an 8-month-old this is extremely unhealthy, as a baby this age should only weigh roughly 17 pounds. Doctors have declared that there is no medical reason behind Santiago's weight gain, he's just being overfed. His new diet consists of being fed primarily vegetables and juices.

Watch a video of Santiago and his mother Eunice Fandino below:
