Alanis Morissette Breastfeeding

Alanis says she’ll continue to breastfeed her son Ever until he’s ready to stop! Vote — is that strange to you?

Time magazine’s cover mom, Airforce mothers, and now singer Alanis Morissette is joining the er, titillating breastfeeding-controversy debate! The singer recently said that she’s prepared to breastfeed her son Ever until he’s 5 or 6 years-old!

“Some kids naturally stop at two, some stop at a couple of years later, it’s up to the child. I will stop when he says it’s time to stop,” the singer, 37, said to Good Morning America on May 31.

Alanis, mom to 17-month-old Ever, talked about the effect of the infamous Time magazine breastfeeding cover and being an attachment parent.

“For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment,” she said. “That stage of development is a very important stage.”

Alanis likes to keep Ever with her as much as possible — as much “skin-on-skin contact” via snuggling and sleeping next to him and even building a studio in her own home to mame sure she is always “available” to him.

As for the Time magazine cover, Alanis said that all families are different: “I consider it appropriate, it is appropriate for that particular child and that particular family.”

Ever is one lucky babe to receive such loving nourishment from a beautiful Mama who is giving exactly what her heart is guiding her to give. Thank you Alanis for being so grounded in your heart chakra and disregarding what all the naysayers.
