This 8-Month-Old Baby Weighs 40 Pounds

There is an infant named Santiago in Bogota, Columbia. Santiago weighs 40 pounds. At eight months, Santiago should tip in at about seventeen pounds — but he's three times the size of other babies at his age. There’s nothing medically wrong with Santiago, according to ABC News, he’s just been overfed; now doctors have put him on a diet of fruit and vegetable juice instead of formula.

Jesus. H. Christ, mom and dad! Get your shit together!

My 2.5 year old is just about 30 pounds, and it is HARD when I have to carry him around for whatever reason. I can't imagine the strain of hauling around a 40-55 pound INFANT! (Not to mention a lot of products—car seats, etc. that are meant for infants developmentally will not fit him weight-wise, so there's another safety issue.)
