Alanis Morissette Talks Attachment Parenting

Alanis Morissette goes on the record with Access Hollywood about her feelings on breastfeeding and attachment parenting in general.  Alanis explains that she plans to breastfeed her son Ever until he’s ready to wean.

“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.”

She shares they are a co-sleeping family.

“We’re definitely skin-on-skin connected as much as possible,”

    As a child psychologist and a mom, one of the things that is so misleading about attachment parenting is the name. It is only called attachment parenting because of the theory it was based upon. It is not called this because it is the only form of parenting which allows parents to develop a secure attachment relationship with their children. There are numerous ways to develop a secure attachment relationship with our kids. I explore more of this myth here for anyone who is interested:
