Alicia Silverstone Is Still Going To Feed Her Kid Mouth-To-Mouth

alicia-silverstone-feeds-her-son-mouth-to-mouth.jpg

Alicia Silverstone has no regrets.

No regrets whatsoever.

After she posted pics (above) and a video of her feeding her 11-month-old son Bear Blu mouth-to-mouth, she got a lotta heat about how sanitary her feeding method was.

The Clueless star defends her video though, saying:

"People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands for years. It’s a weaning process. He attacks my mouth and I think it’s adorable … it makes me laugh every time he does it. He also knows how to use his hands and he also eats regular food. When babies are weaning, he still breastfeeds. Some people think that’s disgusting too, which is insane.

Honestly, when I posted the video I was not thinking, so maybe I was like [Clueless character] Cher!"

She's just a protective momma bear who's protecting her cub.

Guess we can't blame her!

What are UR thoughts on Alicia's feeding style??

Alicia Silverstone Feeds Her Baby MOUTH-TO-MOUTH

We think we're gonna vom.

No judgement though!

Alicia Silverstone posted the (above) picture from a video of her 11-month-old son's feeding time.

And it doesn't look strange at all.

Nope. The picture doesn't look like Alicia is basically making out with her son or anything like that.

Here's the deal. According to Alicia, she actually feeds Bear Blu by chewing his food and then transferring the mushy chunks from her mouth to his.

Read how she describes the process. Gross.

"I feed 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!"

Well, guess what?

Turns out, this isn't exactly the safest idea, according to medical and nutrition experts.

"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."

Oh, trust us. We're definitely considering that "ick factor."

What's going to happen when he's 10??

Q&A: Dog Looooves To Chew

Filed under: DogDr. Patrick Mahaney

dr-patrick-mahaney-blackpic.jpg

Lots of people have dogs who loooove to chew. So did this reader:

Dear Teddy,

I'm the owner of a Golden Retriever and I'm looking for a good a long, lasting chew toy for my pal. He's a rather energtic and active pup, and he puts his toys through the ringer with all his energy. Any suggestions?

-Andy

Dr. Patrick Mahaney responded:

Hello Andy,

Thank you for your question.

You are fortunate to have such a pleasant breed like the Golden Retriever.

They are true companion dogs that I greatly enjoy having as veterinary patients.

Finding that right chew toy that survives the playful advances of a determined dog can certainly be challenging. I am pleased to hear that you are overseeing playtime to make sure that nothing inappropriate is ingested.

The toys that I know that seem to be the least likely to be destroyed include "twisted rope" toys and the Kong. A twisted rope toy can provide a flossing-like effect to stimulate gum tissue and remove debris. The Kong can be stuffed with healthy, all natural, preservative/artificial color/artificial flavor free treats, have the hole topped off with a natural peanut butter "cap", then put into the freeze to solidify the peanut butter.

This provides a healthy and entertaining play experience that most dogs cannot resist.

Good luck.
Dr PM
