Alanis Morissette Breastfeeding

We’ve all seen the explosive ‘Time’ magazine cover of Jamie Lynne Grumet breast feeding her nearly 4-year-old son. Whether or not it’s for you, we now know what side of the fence Alanis is sitting on. The singer plans to nurse until her son is finished!

Some celebrities — ahem Jason Biggs — have taken the Time magazine feature on the “attachment parenting” phenomenon as a joke, while others completely embrace it. Alanis Morissette has admitted that she’ll be breast feeding her 16-month-old son Ever until he’s finished.

“I’m an attachment parent,” the singer told Access Hollywood on May 17. “I breast feed and I’ll be breast feeding until my son is finished and he weans,” the 37-year-old mom explained.

Alanis has a son with rapper husband Mario “Souleye” Treadway.

“I think it affords the child, when he grows up, to have a lot less therapy to go to,” she added. “For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment. That stage of development is a very important stage.”

Alanis also said to host Billy Bush that she plans to let her son share their bed: “We’re definitely skin-on-skin connected as much as possible.”
