Alanis Morissette Shares Nursing Photo


Canadian singer Alanis Morissette took to Instagram this weekend to share a close-up photo of her newborn son breastfeeding.

“snug as a bug in a milky rug,” she captioned the pic, adding the hashtags “#worldbreastfeedingmonth” and “#notalwayseasypeasy.”

Morissette and husband Mario “Souleye” Treadway welcomed their third child, Winter Mercy, on Aug. 8. 

The Ottawa-born star also tagged the Instagram accounts of Stop Censoring Motherhood and Normalize Breastfeeding.

Most people who commented on the photo commended Morissette for sharing a perfectly natural motherhood moment. A few, though, took exception.

“Just because [it's] natural doesn’t mean we need a close up shot of it. I mean, pooping is natural too,” wrote one. Another opined: “It’s a[n] intimate time between mom and child not mom child and the world.”
