1000 Lb Sisters: Amy Is Risking Son Gage’s Health? What Is She Feeding Him?
Amy recently collaborated with a Tik Tok star for a video. It was meant to be a funny clip where she dubs her own dialogue with a social media celeb. It was based on one of her most popular fights with elder sister Tammy Slaton. However, TLC viewers took notice of something extremely different. At the end of the video, fans saw the new mom feed her son Gage something from his bottle. It definitely didn’t look like milk. Some suggest it can be juice.
The fanbase on Reddit realized that Gage is more than a year old. Hence, feeding juice to a child that young can is not really harmful but still not safe. Another account joked that Halterman is feeding her son “sodies.” It’s a common term that all 1000 Lb Sisters fans are aware of. In one of the earlier episodes, both the Slaton sisters admitted to never drinking plain water. They instead consumed sodas that they called “sodies.” All other Redditors had a hearty laugh at the comment.
This isn’t the first time such an incident has happened. Amy had posted a bunch of home videos on her youtube handle. Back then, her son gage was only 6 months old. She was accused of feeding him juice there as well, along with other poor parenting skills.
