Celebrities Who Breastfeed: Alanis Morissette, Mayim Bialik, Beyonce And More

Posted: Updated:

After a certain national magazine rocked the world with a cover story about attachment parenting, singer Alanis Morissette, 37, is the most recent celebrity to announce publicly that she follows the tenets and advice of Dr. Bill Sears. Specifically, Morissette, a mother of one, is making headlines for saying she prioritizes breastfeeding, even though her son, Ever, is 16 months old.

"I breastfeed and I’ll be breastfeeding until my son is finished and he weans," she said on "The Billy Bush Show."

Morissette joins other celebrity moms who have been recognized for nursing, whether negatively for doing it longer than the public expects to see a mother put her child on the breast, positively for being a role model who abides by the advice of the American Academy of Pediatrics or just for being a mother who is -- with leaky boobs, a bigger bra size, and less sleep -- indeed, "just like us."

But celebrities -- such as Beyoncé, Alicia Silverstone and Mayim Bialik (aka Blossom) -- going public with their breastfeeding stories is nothing new.
