A 44-pound baby named Santiago has been put on a special diet to slim his chubby frame.

The 8-month-old Colombian boy weighs 44 pounds, over double the average weight for a baby his age according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Folds of fat were preventing the baby boy from being able to move, and that prompted his mother to seek medical help for his heart and for his weight.

Doctors are trying to get him down to 17 pounds by weaning him off formula and adding more fruit and veggies to his diet.
