Alicia Silverstone feeds her son like a bird

When I first saw this headline on E! News "Alicia Silverstone Feeds Her Son…With Already Chewed Food Out of Her Mouth?!", I didn't know what the big deal was. Thinking back I was pretty sure I'd seen my aunts and cousins chew some food up that their babies couldn't quite chew yet and give it to them. Gross? Maybe, but not unheard of.

But what E! failed to relay in their headline was that she fed him straight from her mouth, like birds do. I'm not sure why, but skipping the part where you use your hand really creeps me out.

Alicia posted the video on her Kind Life healthy lifestyle blog last week along with the following description:

"I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon. Yum! 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. 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!"

What do you think? Gross or perfectly normal?
