Awwww or Ewwwww? Discuss.
My first instinct is ewwww. But then I realize that though we are highly evolutionized, we are still animals, just the same as the rest of the being son this planet. I can think of dozens of species, just off the top of my head, that feed their babies by regurgitating food, or by chewing it and feeding it to their baby mouth to mouth - or beak to beak... lol
Honestly, I think that as long as mom is healthy, there is no good reason why this would be wrong. Strange for humans, maybe, but not for the animal kingdom in general.
EWWWWWW. I'm happy about modern inventions that allow us to skip this phase. There is no way I would be able to ignore the effects transferring my bacteria (in my mouth) to my kid's mouth would have on his teeth/gums.
It is just so weird how people have connected being a good parent to extreme behavior for the sake of rebelling against the norm. There is no benefit to spitting your food in your childs mouth as opposed to mashing it up some other way. Between this and the pooping in garbage cans and BFing until your child is 7, I am at a loss for words.
Definitely Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww in my book.
Yep I'm with Lana too. It's gross and there is no need for it.
