A 10 month old Chinese boy is making headlines after reportedly weighing 44 pounds, as much as an average 6-year-old child.
Baby Lei Lei has been nickinamed the “Michelin Baby” and is being tested in hospitals to see if his rapid weight gain is a medical issue.
The boy’s mother Cheng Qingyu says her son was a normal weight at birth but now is comparable to the size of a kindergarten student.
She proudly shows him off however and says that eating is his favorite hobby, telling the UK Daily Mail,
“No matter whatever he grabs, he unconsciously puts it in his mouth. ..His most favorite thing is to eat.”
