Alicia Silverstone feeding baby Bear mouth-to-mouth bird-style in YouTube video
Every mother knows that it can often be difficult to get their child to eat their dinner.
And it seems that Alicia Silverstone has found a very unusual feeding method when it comes to her son Bear's meal time.
The 35-year-old actress appears to have taken inspiration from the way birds feed their chicks by chewing up her 10-month-old baby boy's food and then spitting it in his mouth.
Unusual: Clueless actress Alicia Silverstone has posted a video of her chewing baby son's food before feeding him mouth-to-mouth
Like the birds: Alicia is seen spitting chewed up food into her 10-month-old's mouth
In a video she posted on her blog, the Clueless actress sits on the couch with Bear during feeding time.
Holding a small bowl, she puts a spoonful of food in her mouth, chews it up before feeding it to him mouth-to-mouth.
Baby Bear Blu clearly knows the drill, as he eagerly reaches to his mother's lips for a mouthful.

Alicia explains the process in an accompanied written post on her blog.
'I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon. Yum!' she wrote.
'I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup… from my mouth to his.

'It’s his favorite...and mine.
'He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I’m eating. This video was taken about a month or 2 ago when he was a bit wobbly. Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food!'
The method of her feeding is similar to the way birds feed their young, aside from the regurgitation process.
Pleased: Alicia clearly looks pleased with herself following the process
