Mama Knows Best

Most of you should know Alicia Silverstone. She is the pretty actress who became famous after starring in “The Crush,” “Clueless” and the Aerosmith video, “Cryin.” Well, the 35-year-old actress made headlines for another reason this week. She posted a video blog which showed her feeding her 10-month-old-son, Bear Blu Jarecki.
In the video, Silverstone is seen eating food, chewing it up and then spitting it into her son’s mouth for him to eat. Of the experience, Silverstone says, “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.” You can view her entire blog post here and watch the feeding video here (it’s only 39 seconds).
Now…personally, I watched the video and felt the “ick factor.” I think it’s gross and a weird feeding habit. But even more interesting were the comments on Silverstone’s blog and on her YouTube site. They ranged from the good (“i love that you are proud of the natural ways you interact with your son”) to the bad (“he’ll turn this into fetish.”)
My issue is also Silverstone posting it on her blog and calling it “bear eating my mouth.” I’m sure she knew it would draw criticism, just like this. Further, I think the “he literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth” comment is very bizarre. So what do you think? Normal? Not normal? Just plain weird? And in your opinion, should this eating habit continue or be stopped before the child gets much older? I’m sure all the parents will have an opinion on this one.
