Alicia Silverstone named her son Bear Blu, so you already know she’s got bark burns on her arms from hugging trees so much. Alicia is strictly vegan, doesn’t wear animal shit on her body and loves Mother Nature’s creatures so much that she even takes feeding tips from them. On her blog The Kind Life, Alicia told the world that she feeds her 11-month-old son by chewing on some vegan food and letting him eat it out of her mouth. And there’s video too!
You know, there’s a few hippie hos in my life, so I try to keep an open mind to their nature fucking ways, but what in the saliva stew hell, Cher?! I have so many questions about Alicia food frenching with her kid, so thankfully Fox411 asked a few experts to give us the pros and cons of this mess:
Dr. Jennifer Landa, M.D: “There are those who think that a mom chewing a baby’s food provides helpful enzymes from her mouth but it doesn’t seem like a hygienic practice. Various viruses and bacteria, but especially herpes virus, may be passed from mother to baby. These microbes present a challenge that the infant’s immune system may not be ready for. So the practice is questionable for safety, and then, there’s a certain ick factor here that needs to be considered.”
Family therapist Melody Brooke: “A lot of moms chew a portion of their baby’s food; it’s often a very natural transition. But this just looks really funny, like Alicia is making out with her son. There is nothing terribly wrong with it, it just looks really weird.”
Heather Lounsbury, the founder of LiveNaturalLiveWell.com: “I’m sure Alicia is brushing her teeth regularly as to not expose her baby to bacteria in her mouth. It is dangerous to try and live in a completely sterile environment, because it’s impossible. And it doesn’t allow for the body to fight minor infections so it can fight more serious illnesses it may be exposed to.”
It’s Alicia’s kid, Alicia’s mouth, Alicia’s chewed up food and if she’s okay with her child spitting up drool into her eatin’ hole, then that’s okay with me and it’s none of my damn business. But I’d probably have a totally different response if I was in a restaurant, eating my pancakes and watched Alicia put her food processor mouth to use by chewing up her food. I would not be amused to see little Bear’s eyes light up as he tied a napkin around his neck to suck the food out of his mom’s mouth. No. Take that shit to the trees, you Nelly Furtado ass ho! Flap, flap, flap! I think I see a worm up there.
