Fans have fallen in love with baby Gage Halterman on 1000-lb Sisters. Since Amy Slaton gave birth to him on the TLC show, fans have been following along with Gage’s growth on Instagram. However, one of Amy’s recent updates had fans pretty alarmed and worried for the baby’s safety.

Fans worried about Gage

Gage has pretty much taken over Amy’s Instagram. Pictures of the little tyke dominate her feed. Most fans aren’t too upset by this but recently, Amy took to the site to share photos of Gage’s Halloween costume. In the string of photos, the baby was dressed as a cowboy.

“Cowboy gage a roo 🎃 2021,” Amy captioned the photos.

The fifth picture in the photo dump showed Gage in his carseat, in a position that worried fans.

“Please please please raise his chest clip on his car seat,” one fan wrote.

“His clip on his car seat needs to be higher,” another person added.

“Don’t forget buckle up by the breastbone,” one user commented.

Some users got into arguments about whether it was any of their business how Amy buckled her son in.

“I would rather upset someone a lite bit and have a child’s life be saved than for it not be brought up,” one fan argued. “Car seat safety is not optional and not mom shaming or a parenting choice. It’s wild to me some people think genuinely caring for a child’s safety is being a Karen, especially when it was brought up in a kind way lol.”

Gage has stirred up controversy before

This isn’t the first time that an Instagram picture of Gage has confused fans. When Gage turned 11 months old, Amy posted a picture of the baby wearing a onesie that read, “Mom thought it was Chinese, Sike!” Some fans were confused and wondered what that onesie cold mean.

“In one of the episodes she went to hospital in lots of pain, turns out she ate too much Chinese food and I assume its meaning she thought that she ate too much again but really it was contractions and having the baby,” one fan explained under the post.

‘1000-lb Sisters’ Season 3

Though it may seem like raising Gage is all fun and games on Instagram, Amy will reportedly struggle with parenting in 1000-lb Sisters Season 3.

“Amy is dealing with her own stress, and while her dreams came true when she became a mom to son Gage, balancing the demands of motherhood with her own weight-loss goals may prove to be impossible,” the 1000-lb Sisters Season 3 synopsis reads.

And Amy isn’t the only one with problems this season.

“With her weight spiraling, Tammy makes the game-changing decision to check herself into rehab for food addiction, but her stay there may be short-lived as she considers the best way to reach her goals. She also appears to be talking to a new love interest, which is cause for concern for her family, as relationships have hindered Tammy’s progress in the past,” the season’s synopsis says.

1000-lb Sisters Season 3 premieres Nov. 15 on TLC.
