A few weeks ago, Alicia Silverstone posted a video of her son Bear Blu eating pre-chewed food directly from her mouth, which outraged many parents and specialists.

Not only was it considered "disgusting" and "gross," but may people wondered how this way of feeding could affect a child's health.

But, despite all the criticism, Alicia, a proclaimed vegan, has spoken and reveals that she stands by her feeding method. 

"People have been feeding their kids that way for thousands of years," Alicia said this past weekend at a sneak preview of her new film, Vamps, in New York City, according to Radar Online.

"It's a weaning process. It's just a thing that has been going on for thousands of years and I didn't think I was inventing anything."

And it's pretty obvious that her 11-month-old son likes the technique, as Alicia wrote that he "literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I'm eating." 

"I wasn't saying this was anything somebody should do," Alicia added. "I wasn't trying to be independent or cause such a ruckus. I'm very glad that I did it."
