So Alicia Silverstone has been seen in public chewing up her child’s food and then feeding it to him through her mouth. She says they bond that way & that he loves it.
Then she’s been seen walking down the streets of LA breastfeeding him in public. Mind you nothing is showing (of her breast, I don’t think).
Ive got to admit at first I thought it was disgusting….but now i’m thinking maybe i’m being too harsh. Your opinions??
Here are some pix!

Dude. Breastfeeding is great. But how gross is that to feed your child out of your mouth?

@eeniebeans: I feel the same way. I don’t know why you would feed a baby out of your own mouth. She’s not a bird!

Feeding the kid from your mouth is disgusting. Personally, I am fine with public breastfeeding, but I wouldn’t choose to do it walking down the street.

How old will he be before he learns how to chew food? Breast feeding is one thing, that is a drink, but this kid is going to be surprised when he goes to a restaurant without her and discovers that some foods are going to require tough chewing and he’ll have to acutally do it himself. lol

The breastfeeding is just fine – the mouth feeding seems gross to me. I’d be worried that, as an adult, her immune system is more developed than his and she could be passing on gross mouth bacteria to him and get him sick. Also, they’re not birds so it’s a little weird.

Public breastfeeding is completely fine, but the bird-like feeding is just gross. Just, WHY???

I’m fine with the breastfeeding in public, but chewing your kid’s food and then spitting it into their mouth is beyond weird and gross!

I’m 100% pro breast feeding in public. The mouth feeding thing is a little weird to me, but eh. I’m sure she wont be doing it when he’s older, and I doubt it will have any lasting effects on him, so I dont really see a problem with it.

I don’t care about the breastfeeding but the mouth feeding is gross. 1 – doesn’t the kid need to learn how to chew? 2 – She is definitely passing on bacteria

I agree with PPs…breastfeeding is totally fine, but the prechewing his food and feeding it to him directly from her mouth is weird.

The food thing is just gross and weird. I am fine with breastfeeding in public, but find it silly to do it while walking. Go sit on a bench and do it.

I think breastfeeding is fine, however, I myself would not do it in public. Especially walking down the street. And chewing up his food and giving it to him directly, gross!!!

I think b/f in public is usually fine but I didn’t like the walking around doing it part. I think she should sit & breastfeed. Still—nothing compares to the mouth to mouth feeding.

I think feeding him directly out of her mouth is so repulsive!
