Add me to the grossed out team too.
Not saying she shouldn't do it as its really none of my business. Its just a little on the ewww side for me.

With a name like Bear, he'll probably have a lot to be pissed about.

What's wrong with the name Bear? It's actually pretty common.

I hear it a lot on a different parenting board, and in IRL but from my friends knowing someone with the name. Wolf seems to also be another common animal name.

I have never known anyone, or known anyone that knew anyone, that had the name Bear (or Wolf, except Wolf Blitzer of course).

I just did a quick search and for the past 100 years it has never once been in the top 1000 names.

It's a common pet name here. Paul "Bear" Bryant (former Alabama Football coach that ranks right up there with Jesus to Alabamians) is the influence...but you don't hear of many kids named Bear. And this would be the place for it. lol

Watching it did make my stomach turn, I guess my thoughts of it was from thinking about doing it myself, my immune system is pretty shoddy from some serious illnesses when I was a kid, and I frequently get throat infections, colds, chest infections, mouth ulcers and such, so no, nothing from my mouth goes inside my children's mouthes, especially not an infant whose immune system isnt fully developed yet. The 'other animals do it' defence ive been hearing a lot makes me laugh, my cat Clio had kittens recently, and she walks around with their necks in their mouthes, you dont see humans doing that with their babies do you?

But its her kid, if she wants to be a bird, then all the luck to her.

Because humans can walk upright and we have a better grip with our hands/arms, cats don't..... If we didn't have those we'd be walking around with our baby's neck in our mouths.

Here are some things I've found on pre-chewing
Premastication - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That was pretty much my point, just because other animals have to do something dosent mean we have to.

Just because we aren't accustomed to it doesn't make it abhorrent, though. I've bitten off pieces of food for my kids and, to be fair, there is little difference between that and what Alicia Silverstone is doing with her son.

Well no one *has* to do it, but some people do because they find it natural. Pre-chewing is common in other parts of the world and cultures. Just because it's not common here doesn't make the practice weird/horrible/etc. I don't see why it would matter if other animals do it or not, because other humans do it all the time.

I, personally, wouldn't do it as it grosses me out. I have no problem biting off pieces for my kids but there is no way I could feed them out of my own mouth and that's my comfort zone. But I'm also on Team Jillian that whatever flips her pancakes is fine with me. The only problem I would have with it would be if she continued to do it if there were problems, like she was passing on bacteria to him and making him ill.

As for the name Bear, I've commonly heard it as a nickname but never as a given name. While I would never name my child that, I've heard much much worse so meh.

Alicia Silverstone is a member of PETA so her feeding her baby in any way ranks way low on the scale of issues I could have with her.

OK so I'm not the only odd ball who's only heard it as a nickname and a given name. Phew lol

Pre-mastication just SOUNDS like something you should be doing behind closed doors and not sharing with others lol.

Gross IMO but I'm picky about my food. Babies probably don't really care that much.

As far as the name Bear, it is very common in Indian tribes to have animal names. My friend's child has the name as his legal name and it's not that unusual in the tribe her family is from.
