Alicia Silverstone Chews Her Son’s Food And Then Feeds It To Him Like A Baby Bird. Yup.

“Now, Bear, eat your lunch out of Mommy’s face hole like a good boy…”

And here’s almost exactly what I just said in the headline, except in Alicia Silverstone‘s own words via ONTD:

“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,” Silverstone wrote. “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!”
The video shows the actress taking a spoonful of food, chewing it, and then passing it open-mouth to her little one.

Of course, my favorite response has to be this doctor who basically says Alicia Silverstone just gave her son herpes before using the phrase “ick factor” as a medical term:

“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,” Dr. Jennifer Landa, M.D Chief Medical Officer of BodyLogicMD told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column. “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.”

Keep in mind, Dr. Jennifer Landa obviously doesn’t feed her children via regurgitation, so I’ll immediately take her word over Alicia Silverstone. In fact, I’ll take Afterbirth Vitamin Queen‘s word over Alicia’s too, but mostly because January Jones clearly hates her son too much to even think about touching his mouth with hers. I heard he hugged her once and she made the nanny fetch a firehose. True story.
