Yuck! Alicia Silverstone Feeds Her Child Like a Mamma Bird

Alicia Silverstone

A video featuring Alicia Silverstone chewing up food in her mouth and then feeding it — mother bird style — to her 11-month old son Bear is causing waves on the internet.

As Silverstone explains on her site The Kind Life, “I just had a delicious breakfast…I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup…from my mouth to his. It’s his favorite…and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I’m eating.”

Prechewing food for a child is frowned upon by most health experts. Studies have found that infants’ immune systems aren’t always ready for the mircrobes found in an adult’s mouth. In extreme cases, diseases such as HIV have been spread this way.

On the other hand, it is an accepted practice in many cultures.

Are you grossed out by Silverstone’s feeding technique? Or is it just a sign she is a loving — if somewhat offbeat — mother?

Regardless, this is probably the most people have been talking about a video featuring Silverstone since her days as an Aerosmith vixen.
