You outta know that singer Alanis Morissette welcomed her third child, son Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway on August 8. The Canadian born singer helped celebrate World Breastfeeding Month, which is August, by posting a sweet picture of her newborn sleepily feeding as she cradles him to her chest, as she continues to advocate for normalizing breastfeeding.
Morissette has been a longtime supporter of normalizing breastfeeding and even took part in the 2015 documentary, "The Milky Way", that hoped to encourage and educate women about breastfeeding. "We live in a very funny society, a society that on one hand says that we're just a sexual object … and then when this other sort of otherworldly, biological wind-in-the-hair goddess power comes out in the form of feeding our children in a very beautiful, animal way, that can actually be more intimidating," the singer says in a clip from the documentary. "We’re trying to come at solving the world’s problems from the symptomatic stuff back," Morissette also says in the documentary. "I think it would be so much easier to start from the beginning and work up."
During an interview on The Billy Bush Show back in 2012, Morissette said she felt strongly about breastfeeding her then two-year-old son Ever as long as he wanted to. "I'll 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."
Morissette announced the birth of her son by posting a sweet picture of the sleeping newborn on her Instagram page with the caption, "he’s here. Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway. #8/8/19 #mywholelifeidreamedoflovingyouthree."
This isn't the first time the Canadian singer has posted a photo to show her support of World Breastfeeding Week. Last year she posted a throwback photo that showed her breastfeeding daughter Onyx while husband Mario 'Souleye' Treadway and son Ever looked on, always supportive.
The singer announced her pregnancy in March on social media when she shared a picture of herself recording new music while sporting a very obvious baby bump.
