NEW YORK (AP) -- Alanis Morissette is a follower of "attachment parenting" for her 20-month-old son, a philosophy that advocates among other things the idea that children be breast-fed until they wean naturally. Morissette says there's nothing "gross" about it. She says, "Everyone thinks there's some kind of sexual impropriety going on when it's actually just connection and intimacy and nurturance." Morissette believes that the more a child's needs are met in early development, the more interdependent they will be as adults. Morissette's new album, "Havoc and Bright Lights," is out now.
