Alanis Morissette: 17-month-old son can breastfeed as long as he wants

alanis-morissette-breastfeed-gma.jpg Alanis Morissette isn't ready to pose on the cover of Time with her child firmly attached to her breast, but she is admitting that she's a fan of "attachment parenting" and plans to breastfeed her 17-month-old son Ever for as long as he's into it.

She also admits in a "GMA" interview that she and husband Mario "MC Souleye" Treadway practice a skin-on-skin philosophy in which either she or Treadway are in constant physical contact with Ever and share a family bed with him.

"I know some kids who have weaned naturally at two years," says Morissette. "Some wean a year or two later. It's up to the child."

What if Ever wants to breastfeed at five or six-years old?" asks interviewer Cecilia Vega.

"Fine," says Morissette. "Whatever he wants."

She also adds that it isn't for everyone.

"I am in a privileged position where I can afford the time and pay for the resources that would support this kind of lifestyle," she says. "Not everyone can do this."
