OMG. Alicia Silverstone is sharing more of her parenting techniques as she promotes her book ‘The Kind Mama.’ She talked about how she began potty training son Bear Blu (now three) when he was SIX MONTHS old. That’s about the youngest I’ve ever heard! She says she used a parenting technique called “elimination communication.” RELATED: Alicia Silverstone emphasizing good health with son Bear Blu.
Mom Alicia Silverstone is going back to basics with her three year old, Bear Blu. Our food contains more sugar than ever, and Alicia is fighting back for the sake of her son’s health. She’s substituting sugary foods for sugar-free rice cakes and things like plastic toys for vintage gardening buckets. RELATED: Alicia Silverstone starts a breast milk sharing service.
Proud mom Alicia Silverstone has recently blogged about her son Bear’s latest miletstones that he’s reached. And from what we’re reading, the little tot is talking up a storm! Here’s what Alicia writes:
“He’s really into words right now. He says ‘baby’ to everything and he says ‘Mommy’ and ‘Daddy’ all the time but I don’t think he knows which one is which. Some days I’m Mommy and some days I’m Daddy,” Alicia says of her 17-month-old son, adding, “He’s been saying ‘holla,’ which means helicopter. First I thought, ‘Why is he saying holla like he’s so cool?’ but I found out he’s using that word as helicopter.”

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.
