After releasing a video showing how she pre-chews her son’s food, Alicia Silverstone raised a few eyebrows. She came out with a small explanation of the technique and is defending the practice once again.
She tells Entertainment Tonight:
“I can understand that it would make some people feel uncomfortable, possibly, because it’s new to them. But I do want to let you know that this has been going on for thousands of years — still going on all over the place — and it’s natural. It’s a part of the weaning process, so while I’m still breast-feeding it’s just a way to introduce him to food when he doesn’t have teeth… and he can’t chew.”
“My kid is healthy. My kid’s the happiest baby ever. He didn’t have teeth and he would choke,” she explained. ” And, basically, how it started was simply that Bear — when he was about 5 months old — I’d be eating and he would come at me with his little mouth open and be on my mouth trying to get the food out of my mouth.”
What did you think after seeing the video? It may not be for everyone, but if it’s what works for her family, then I don’t see anything wrong with it.
