Not that long ago I came across an article talking pretty strongly about a video of a woman practicing premastication with her son. I was a little taken aback by the article wondering why they were making such a big deal. I’ve never heard of the term premastication, but I knew right away what it meant, so I went ahead and watched the video of this evidently socially enforced taboo.
Since I’m all about breaking the “social norms” now a days, I’m going to be honest with you. I had practiced this without even knowing that it was a thing. As a mother, I have certain instincts that take over me. Its hard for me to explain to anyone who is not a mother, or is… lets say… a father, but there is this part of my body that just acts in its own. It’s primitive.
I personally do not see anything wrong with this or anyone who practices this for that matter. As technology evolves our way of doing things may evolve with that, but that does not mean that how we used to do things in the first place should be considered wrong. Its hard to find a home now a days that doesn’t have a Baby Bullet in their cupboards, but sometimes its easier and more convenient to do the work ourselves while we feed our babies from our plates. I mean, its not like you ever want the food off your plate anyways. Mommy’s food is always more enticing.
