Alanis Morissette has something she thinks you oughta know: she intends on breastfeeding her 16-month-old son Ever until he’s ready to stop, saying that the practice will keep him out of therapy. “For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment,” she told Billy Bush. “That stage of development is a very important stage.” She also said that she’s a fan of co-sleeping as well; “We’re definitely skin-on-skin connected as much as possible,” she said. I can’t say I’m surprised that Alanis is a self-defined attachment parent (AP); after all, her baby daddy is a guy named Souleye. [Celebrity Baby Scoop]
But seriously, I don’t get what all the fuss surrounding AP is all about. Carrying your child in a baby sling as opposed to pushing them in a stroller — so cute! Breastfeeding for as long as you and your kid damn well want to — if mom doesn’t care about a few nipple bites, why should we? Many of the aspects of AP sound pretty okay by me and I wouldn’t be surprised if, when I become a mom, I practice my own modified version. I mean, I’ve been co-sleeping with my dog Lucca since day one.
Here are seven other celebrity parents who practice AP and they don’t give a damn whether you approve or not!
