Alicia Silverstone Chews Her Baby's Food And Spits It Into His Mouth

Not tryna gross you out, but this is bizarre, right? Vegan-at-large Alicia Silverstone reports that she feeds her 10-month-old son, Bear, by... mouth. Just like a mama bird would, she chews his solid food and gives it to him lip-to-lip. Silverstone posted a video of the process and explained, “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. This video was taken about a month or two ago when he was a bit wobbly. Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food!” So, this is apparently practiced in some parts of the world (perhaps along with eating your own placenta?), but what do you think: Is this feeding method natural or not good for the kid?
