Alanis Morissette is not afraid to speak her mind in songs so it’s no surprise that she is taking a stance on the attachment parenting debate in wake of Time magazine’s controversial cover photo of a mother breastfeeding her three-year-old son.
“I’m an attachment parent,” the 37-year-old singer told Access Hollywood in a recent interview. “I breastfeed and I’ll be breastfeeding until my son is finished and he weans.”
Morissette believes her decision to nurse her 16-month-old son, Ever Imre, until he’s ready to stop will assist in his future emotional welfare.
“I think it affords the child, when he grows up, to have a lot less therapy to go to,” she explained. “For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment. That stage of development is a very important stage.”
Morissette also revealed that she co-sleeps with Ever, alongside her husband Mario “Souleye” Treadway.
