(ORDO NEWS) — The 22-year-old American has become famous online for allowing her eight-month-old son Fern to eat dirt, sand and stones. Reported by the Daily Mail.
Alice Bender of Phoenix, Arizona claims her breast milk will protect Fern from any germs. The woman is raising her son as a vegan and believes that there is nothing unnatural in the fact that babies begin to eat sand and stones.
“I am not afraid of bacteria, quite the contrary. I trust nature and my son. It cannot be an accident that babies chew everything while breastfeeding. It’s a natural instinct, ”Bender wrote.
In addition to rocks, sand and dirt, the woman allows Fern to gnaw on other items and even lick the shopping carts in the supermarket.
There was an active discussion on Bender’s TikTok page. Some users supported her and said that the child will develop a strong immune system. At the same time, others were horrified by what they saw and asked if the progressive mother was afraid that Fern would pick up parasites or simply choke.
“I am afraid for the future of our country,” said one commentator.
Earlier it was reported that a vegan from British Brighton Lydia Beves fundamentally does not feed her son with animal products in order to save the planet. A woman considers her lifestyle to be the only correct one and does not understand why other parents do not follow her example.
