Pre-Chewing Your Child’s Food

Most people know her as the self-centered air-headed teenager in the cult classic movie Clueless, but actress Alicia Silverstone recently raised eyebrows when she revealed she chews her child’s food before he eats it. Silverstone posted a video of herself chewing food for her ten-month old son Bear before spitting it into his mouth. While this is not a new practice and has been used to help a baby ween off of breastfeeding or a bottle, it is gross, not to mention unhygienic. The adult mouth contains up to one thousand different kinds of bacteria and that can potentially expose a baby to hundreds of germs its tiny body is not prepared to defend off just yet. Leave the pre-chewing for the birds, people.
