Alicia Silverstone Defends Feeding Son Like A Baby Bird

Alicia Silverstone is defending her parenting skills.

In fact, Alicia feels that pre-chewing her son’s food is “adorable” and she doesn’t regret making it public, despite the widespread backlash.

The “Clueless” star posted a video last month of her taking a spoonful of food, chewing it, then passing it open-mouthed to her 11-month-old son, Bear Blu. It went viral.

During an audience Q&A at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York to promote her upcoming film “Vamps,” Silverstone said:

“I wasn’t saying this was anything somebody should do. I wasn’t trying to be independent or cause such a ruckus. I’m very glad that I did it People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands of years. It’s a weaning process. It’s just a thing that has been going on for thousands of years and I didn’t think I was inventing anything…”

Did you hear that? Thousands of years — it’s normal.
