Chahat’s skin is very thick and this has made the doctors unable in obtaining a blood sample.
It is also reported the small baby is experiencing sleeping problems as well as breathing issues due to her extreme weight.
Chahat’s mother Reena said, “We don’t have enough money for her treatment, but we do our best to make sure she gets well.”
