Alicia Silverstone on Unusual Baby Feeding Video: No Regrets!

by at . Comments

Alicia Silverstone wants you to know she has no regrets about the highly unusual (and surprisingly controversial) way she feeds her son. So chew on that, haters.

The star made headlines last month when she posted a video that showed Alicia chewing food for her baby and transferring it to his mouth directly from hers.

Now she's defending herself from critics poking fun or criticizing her for it, saying it has been an accepted practice for millennia and she's not about to stop.

"People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands of years," she said this past weekend at a sneak preview of her new film, Vamps.

"It's a weaning process. It's just a process that has been going on for thousands of years of humanity ... I didn't think I was inventing anything."

"I wasn't saying this was anything somebody should do," Silverstone explained. "I wasn't trying to be independent or cause such a ruckus."

"But I'm very glad that I did it."

Bear seems to love it, anyway. He "literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I'm eating," she wrote when posting the baby video.

Thats just gross. I dont care if people have been doing it for thousands of years! Lots of thing were done a certain way for a long time, that doesnt make them healthy or right. People used to dig a hole behind their house to poop in but im pretty sure thats frowned upon now. People took a bath once a year, pretty sure that would be a problem. Its not just grinding up your childs food, its spit and germs and who knows what else! Get a food processor and dont be so damn lazy, using "its been done for..." i dont care and im pretty sure doctors arent gonna say oh yeah spit ur food in your kids mouth. No. Gross. Lazy.

Looked like she was pressuring him to do it. Let him learn how to chew his on food. He'll be a picky eater when hes older. So weird

Alicia Silverstone Quotes

Infants who are left in their diapers all day get out of tune with their bodies ... because they get used to walking around in a toilet...So step away from the Pampers.

Your chichi is the most absorbent part of your body.
