Back in the 90s Alicia Silverstone played a bird brained socialite named Cher in the hit movie Clueless. These days, the mother of 10-month-old Bear Blu (yes that’s his real name) plays a different kind of bird. Seems that the actress has picked up a mothering tip or two from nature’s winged creatures, she enjoys feeding her son by spitting food into his mouth. Don’t believe us? Check out the video Alicia posted to her personal youtube page over the weekend.
Alicia, who is vegan and raising her son the same, doesn’t give a reason for her bird like feeding habits, but even if she did it wouldn’t keep me from saying one very important thing….ewwwwww!!
Would you feed your children by spitting into their mouths? Have you heard of any health benefits?
Mothers from have been doing this since the beginning of time, it’s called premastication (or pre-chewing), which makes a lot of sense before “baby food” came to market – yes there was such a time. Have to give her kudos for taking it back to the basics and more power to her.
I’m sure the food she’s chewing up in her mouth is probably a much healthier than some of the things I see women giving their babies and toddlers now a days
