These two may be Colombia's biggest babies, but don't worry - they're getting professional help!
Two ten-month-old babies named Santiago Mendoza and Isabela Caicedo have a combined weight of 91 POUNDS, which is way too much for such young kiddies!
The frustrated parents in fact had to bring them to the Chubby Hearts foundation, who work with weight loss specialists, to help their not-so-little ones out!
It started off when Santiago Mendoza's mother realized her 8-month-old son weighed more than 40 pounds, which is the average weight of a six-year-old, and found out her son's life was at risk.
Luckily, with the help of Chubby Hearts, the mother was able to bring her son's weight down to a manageable amount.
Isabela Caicedo's mother saw the great work the foundation did with Santiago, and decided to bring her baby in, as well. The mother said:
"In the first few months Isabela pestered me all the time - she didn't sleep, she was just eating and eating. We started to try to regulate her food intake but she wasn't losing any weight."
Since then Isabela has lost almost four pounds, and her team of specialists are extremely optimistic about her chances of improving on those numbers!
Here's what the foundation's director Salvador Palacio said:
"We hope with six to eight months using a special diet the babies could be down to a normal weight. Thousands of children in Colombia - and millions around the world - suffer with obesity. From Colombia we have formed an international alliance to help people who are overweight."
We're so glad to see these moms realizing the big health problems their babies were facing, and taking significant steps to improve their children's situation!
We wish the best of luck to Santiago and Isabela on their journey to good health!
They're too cute not to succeed!!!
