When a video went viral of Silverstone feeding her son, Bear Blu, pre-chewed food from one smacker to another, the reactions were hardly all shits and giggles. But that didn’t bother vegan and constipation-killer Silverstone, who insists that “people have been feeding their kids that way for thousands of years” and that it’s all part of the weaning process. Most doctors say she’s not entirely clueless, and that there’s definitely some validity to the method. We say, chew and let chew. [NYDN]
