Why Selena Gomez Was Drinking From a Baby Bottle

Selena Gomez, a 25-year-old adult woman, appeared in an Instagram story alongside her friend Anna Collins, drinking what appears to be milk from a baby bottle. Strange? Sure.

“I started when I was first put on my anti-anxiety meds—I’m on a very small dose of anything that my doctor has given me, because I don’t prefer meds,” Kent explained. “You know, there are a lot of people who say if you put an elastic band around your wrist, and your anxiety is out of control, you can flick it against your wrist. For me it was like…having something in my mouth makes me fall asleep. And, obviously, if I have something to suck on I don’t want to choke and die. So a baby bottle was just the next thing. I’d watch babies do it and it’s so soothing for them. So I was like, okay, maybe it would still be soothing for a grown-ass woman. And it is! It’s not something that I do on a daily basis, but anytime I’m going into intense situations I always make sure to pack it.” Seems like Gomez was just paying loving tribute to this.
