Alanis Morissette: I Will Breastfeed Until My Son Weans
Amidst all the breastfeeding controversy, Alanis Morissette has added her voice to the conversation as a pro attachment parent.
In a new interview, the singer reveals she is still nursing 16-month-old Ever Imre — and, as of yet, has no plans to stop.
“I breastfeed and I’ll be breastfeeding until my son is finished and he weans,” Morissette, 37, tells Access Hollywood.
Her decision, she adds, will provide her son with the stability he needs in his future. “I think it affords the child, when he grows up, to have a lot less therapy to go to,” the first-time mom explains.
“For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment. That stage of development is a very important stage.”
The family of three — which includes husband Mario “Souleye” Treadway — stays “skin-on-skin connected” as much as possible and is practicing co-sleeping. However, despite sharing their bed with a toddler, Morissette reveals it doesn’t put a damper on the couple’s relationship.
“He’s a very robust, virile man,” she says with a laugh. “You gotta take care of your husband.”
