My 16-month-old boy weighs the same as an eight-year-old and has to wear his father’s clothes

  • Muhammad Kenzi Alfaro weighs 60lbs, around three times the average
  • The massive baby, who lives in Bandung, Indonesia, has to wear XXXL nappies 

A baby boy has become so big that he weighs the same as an eight-year-old and has to wear his father’s clothes. 

Muhammad Kenzi Alfaro is only 16 months old but weighs a whopping 60lbs – and wears nappies in size XXXL. 

An average baby his age weighs around a third of his size, at 22lbs. 

A video filmed at his home in Bandung Regency, Indonesia, shows his mother Patriah laughing as she struggles to push him into an upright position. 

Kenzi wears a green T-shirt with the number 2 on – which appears a couple of sizes too small – as the child is eventually heaved onto his feet for a split second.

He eats snacks and plays with his toys as his family gathers around him in a team effort to look after him. 

The footage also zooms in on his swollen hands and feet as his mother tries to pull his T-shirt down. 

Pitriah explained the difficulty of the situation – as Kenzi doesn’t fit in his pushchair anymore but his parents find it hard to lift him up and he can’t support himself. 

Kenzi weighed 10 pounds at birth – which is large, but not usually a cause for concern as most come in at between five and eight pounds. 

She said: ‘His father’s body is also small. His father’s clothes just fit him, sometimes they are also worn on my son,’ The Sun reported.

She also described the difficulty to find him nappies of the right size, saying: ‘So I put on the double XL, I also bought the one in the shop, but the triple XL in the shop doesn’t exist.’ 

But in the past year he has grown in size to the extent he needs regular medical care and visits. 

His parents and doctors have wondered if he has an underlying health condition due to his rapid increase in size. 

They are awaiting final results after he had tests at the Hermina Bekasi Hospital. 

Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin said officials were monitoring Kenzi.
