First I must say, I am not a mother.  But I know plenty of women that are.  I have never seen any of them feed their children this way.  Actress Alicia Silverstone recently posted a video of herself and her baby on her blog, "The Kind Life".  In the video Silverstone is feeding her baby like a mama bird would feed a baby bird - mouth to mouth.  She actually chews up the food, and passes it to her 11 month old son via her own mouth.  Is that normal?

There is a name for this type of feeding, it is called PremasticationABC News reports this method is used world wide. Really?  Check out the footage for yourself below.
