Mexican Baby Weighs 62 Lbs & Doctors Don’t Know Why
The average baby at 10 months weighs anywhere between 17 and 22 pounds, but Luis Gonzalez from Tecoma, Mexico weighs 28kg or 62 pounds, which is three times as much as the norm. When he was born, he weighed 7.7 lbs., which is nothing to be concerned about, except that his weight keeps accelerating at a rapid pace and doctors don’t know why this is happening.
“I thought it was because I had good breast milk,” said his mother, 24-year-old Isabel Pantoja. The child has been in and out of hospitals because they are scared for his health. “It hurts to watch the nurses search among rolls of fat on his arms for a vein,” says his father, Mario Gonzalez.
His parents opened up a Facebook page and opened a bank account for people to donate money for Luis Manuel’s medical care. One pediatrician told them that the boy may need hormone injections, which can cost $555 each. He goes to the hospital as many as 4 times a week for tests.
