Alanis Morissette: I could breastfeed for years

Singer Alanis Morissette reveals that she is prepared to breastfeed her son until he tells her he’s ready to stop -- even if that takes years.

The “Ironic” singer stopped by "Good Morning America" on Thursday to discuss her thoughts on attachment-parenting, being a mother to Ever, her 17-month-old son, and the appropriate time to stop breastfeeding a child.

“I’ll stop whenever he wants,” revealed Morissette, echoing one of the tenants of a controversial style of parenting known as "attachment-parenting."

“Some kids naturally stop at two, some stop at a couple of years later, its up to the child,” she tells GMA. “I will stop when he says it's time to stop.”

The 37-year-old was also asked about the controversial TIME magazine cover depicting a woman breastfeeding a child some considered far too old.

Morissette defended both the mother and the cover, saying, “I consider it appropriate, it is appropriate for that particular child and that particular family.”
