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."
