Alicia Silverstone Feeds Her Son Like A Bird
Um, I’m not a mother. Let’s start there. I have never had another human being shoot out of my body, then had to continue the arduous task of caring for him for the next 20 years. I have been a nanny, though, and am the best “auntie” my friends’ kids can get ;-)
With that said, I find this video of actress Alicia Silverston feeding her 10 month old son Bear Blu like a baby bird… icky, and slightly disturbing. Have we really gone from glorifying breast feeding to prechewing the food for our children? REALLY??? Alicia posted this video on her website, The Kind Life, for everyone to see.
I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon. Yum! 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 2 ago when he was a bit wobbly. Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food!
I shouldn’t judge, but… this is a blog and that’s what I do. Even with my shrink background, I still find this a little more than uncomfortable. Can you imagine going over to her house for lunch? And then seeing this in person for the first time??
Um, yeah. Maybe I just am not open minded. Sound off in the comments below!
