    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.

    Hmmm, but on that logic it should also be quite exceptable then for moms to use their tongues to lick the snot out of their childrens and their own noses, eat each others feces, vomit up your food to re-eat it, and urinate on a potential mate to get his/her attention. Come on, you can't actually believe that this is OK just because animals do it? REally?

    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.

    Lana pretty much summed it up for me. Nasty.

    Yep I'm with Lana too. It's gross and there is no need for it.

    It doesn't really bother me. To each his own.

    I don't think I would ever do the mouth to mouth. They brought this up on the radio yesterday and a TON of moms called in saying that they had pre-chewed food for their kids before.

    Now wait - I made no mention of eating feces - let's stick to the actual question that I was referring to. Obviously that would be a health hazard and I would in no way advocate for that. I'm not even a crunchy kind of mom, but my point is that I see no harm in chewing your baby's food. I personally wouldn't do it, but I don't see anything wrong with it. And as for sucking the snot out of babies' noses - I actually know someone who does that. It's GROSS. But effective. It doesn't harm the child, but helps them. Again, I wouldn't do it, but I'm not about to go off spewing crap off at her for doing it... just because you believe something is gross doesn't necessarily make it wrong.

    If you saw the movie Babies (from 2010) where they document 4 babies from around the world, the African mother does just this. Culturally it's not typically done in America, but I'm sure this mother from the movie is not an isolated incident.
