Alanis Morrisette still nursing son
Alanis Morissette still breastfeeds her 16-month-old son.
The 37-year-old singer - who has little Ever Imre with husband Mario 'Souleye' Treadway - believes attachment parenting is important for the youngster's well-being and believes continuing to feed him naturally until he is ready to stop is the best thing for his long-term emotional welfare.
She said: ''I'm an attachment parent. 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. For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment. That stage of development is a very important stage.''
Alanis also admitted Ever sleeps alongside her in bed.
She told 'Access Hollywood': ''We're definitely skin-on-skin connected as much as possible.''
However, despite her dedication to attachment parenting - which encourages constant contact between parent and child - the 'Ironic' hitmaker insists it doesn't stop her finding the time to be intimate with her husband.
She said: ''He's a very robust virile man. You gotta take care of your husband.''
Alanis recently revealed she installed a recording studio in her home when working on her new album 'Havoc And Bright Lights' because she didn't want to be too far away from her son.
Talking about the album, she said: ''To be honest I wrote it post-partum the whole few months after my son was born, so I barely remember the process.
''It was in our home, and we built a makeshift studio in what is now the playroom because I'm an attachment parent, so I wanted to be able to breastfeed.
''So it was literally in and out of this room, writing, recording, being a mom, back and forth in my house. I barely remember it and I wouldn't say I was letting loose, but I was having fun.''18-05-2012
