Juanita Valentina Hernandez weighed six pounds at birth, but just 10 months later, the Colombian infant has ballooned to 44 pounds — the weight of an average 5-year-old. "When she was 15 days old she was already looking chubby, because she was born very thin," Juanita's mother, Sandra Franco, told the Daily Mail. Until now, Franco was unable to afford medical treatment for her daughter, but she's teamed up with Gorditos de Corazon, a Colombian charity whose name translates to "Chubby Hearts," to get to the root of the issue.
"Thousands of children in Colombia — and millions around the world — suffer from obesity. From Colombia we have formed an international alliance to help people who are overweight," said Salvador Palacio, the director of the organization. Here's hoping that little Juanita is on the road to recovery soon. To see more pictures of the big baby, head over to Yahoo Parenting.
