Doctors are treating two Colombian babies that weigh more than 80 pounds combined.

Santiago Mendoza and Isabela Martinez are receiving special medical treatment at a clinic in Medellín, Colombia, reports ABC News.

The charity Gorditos de Corazón, which translates to “Chubby Hearts,” has been working with Isabela to help her lose weight.

The organization’s director, Salvador Palacio, was so concerned about Isabela that he had the family move to Medellín for treatment.

She has now joined Santiago, who is being weaned off formula so he can start eating fruits and vegetables.

Ten-month-old Santiago made headlines in March for weighing 44 pounds. According to growth charts by the American Academy of Pediatrics, that is more than double the recommended weight for his age.
