Alicia Silverstone Kiss-Feeds Her Son, Just Like A Momma Bird!
Hey, have you guys heard of “kiss-feeding”? I don’t have a kid so I always feel “WTF?!” when I hear about, um, interesting parenting methods and my response to kiss-feeding was definitely “WTF?!” Allow me to explain: kiss-feeding is where the parent chews up food and then spits it in the baby’s mouth, like a mother bird would to her lil’ chick. Alicia Silverstone is a kiss-feeder and she posted a video of her feeding her 11-month-old son Bear this way on her health food site TheKindLife.com. Some people are freaking out about it; I wouldn’t say that I am freaking out, but I guess I’m sort of, like, why? I get that without a full-set of teeth, Bear can’t chew solids, but isn’t that what Gerber’s etc. or — in the case of parents who make their own baby food — blenders are for? I’m pretty sure Alicia Silverstone can afford a blender. Anyway, kiss-feeding seems like something done in ye olden times, before blenders were invented. I really don’t want to be judge-y, so what say you? [Fox News]
