1000-Lb. Sisters star Tammy Slaton has come under fire for letting her nephew Gage play with an iPad.
The TLC star, 36, shared sweet photos of the two-year-old looking intently at the device’s screen while lying sprawled out on the living room floor.

While many 1000-Lb Sisters fans praised the cute shots, some ripped Tammy’s “terrible” decision to let the toddler use an iPad.
After one fan wrote, “Gage is a certified iPad baby,” another commented: “Which is terrible for children!……”
A third posted: “Scary. Ruining the child’s brain. The poor child looks like a zombie staring into the glowing void. So sad.”
Amy shares Gage and her son Glenn, eight months, with her estranged husband Michael Halterman.
Gage attracted further attention earlier this week when he threw a noisy tantrum in the middle of Tammy’s wedding.
The two-year-old was seen rolling around in the aisle and crying as Tammy and Caleb tried to exchange their vows.
Gage’s meltdown started off as a few cries while Tammy walked down the aisle to meet Caleb at the altar.
The toddler’s sobs turned into full-on screaming as Caleb wiped away tears while facing his bride-to-be.
The camera then cut to Gage throwing himself off of a guest’s lap into the middle of the aisle.
The toddler rolled around, before picking himself back up.
Amy – who was standing on the other side of the venue while acting as a bridesmaid – looked over at her son in concern.
The 35-year-old tried to silence her child by putting her finger to her lips and shushing him.
Amy has previously been slammed for her parenting skills.
Earlier this month, she was accused of displaying “damaging” behavior towards Gage.
Amy shared a TikTok video of the toddler standing on a set of scales, exclaiming, “It’s a scale!” as he stood on the device and bent his knees.
The electronic scales announced Gage’s weight as “28.4 pounds.”
Amy captioned the brief video: “When ur mom on a weight loss show!!!”
While many fans praised the cute clip, others wondered if Gage was too young to learn about scales.
One commented: “Don’t teach the baby about scales it ruined me.”
Another added: “I feel like it’s kind of damaging to introduce weight to a small child.”
Amy had Glenn via a scheduled C-section in July 2022.
Gage was born in November 2020, just months after his mother underwent vital gastric band surgery to reduce her weight.
