Breastfeeding is a super hot topic this month, and Alanis Morissette has decided to speak out in support of the issue!
The "You Oughta Know" singer recently revealed that she is still nursing her 16-month-old son Ever Imre, and she doesn't plan to stop anytime soon!
Morisette recently confessed to Access Hollywood: “I breastfeed and I’ll be breastfeeding until my son is finished and he weans. I think it affords the child, when he grows up, to have a lot less therapy to go to.”
The 37-year-old mom of one 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 revealed that she loves to stay “skin-on-skin connected” with hubby, Mario “Souleye” Treadway, adding, "He’s a very robust, virile man. You gotta take care of your husband.”
The TIME magazine cover released this month that featured a 26-year-old woman breastfeeding her nearly 4-year-old son, with the controversial headline "Are You Mom Enough?"
The cover promoted other celeb moms to chime in on the subject, with Alyssa Milano expression, "Time, no! You missed the mark! You're supposed to be making it easier for breastfeeding moms. Your cover is exploitive & extreme," while former child star Mayim Bialik, said, "I was shocked how amazing her story was. And she gave an educated and eloquent set of responses. I would not have done a photo shoot myself but I respect her and think she is a smart woman."
Meanwhile American Pie star Jason Biggs had a more lighthearted take on the issue!
