Alanis Morissette breastfeeds her youngest child Winter, 7 months, on the cover of Health magazine’s latest issue, on sale April 10.
Here’s what the 45-year-old singer had to share with the mag…
On why she wanted to appear on the cover while breastfeeding: “Because I love women. I love moms so much. If I talk about it too much, I’ll start crying. I just think moms are so selfless day in and day out—women are just killing it all the time. And they are so often quietly suffering, or not-so-quietly suffering, and still going—functioning sufferers. And if there can be even one moment of respite that my humor around it or my validation of it can help—that’s why I did it. Plus, I love education and teaching.”
On her postpartum experiences: “My first two children, it was mostly depression, suicidal ideation, and anxiety. But the depression was so in my face that the anxiety was just background music. With this one, it’s mostly anxiety and almost no depression. I’ve come to understand that this is purely animal. On that animal level, you’re just supposed to be up all night feeding your baby and sleeping all day when they’re napping. Who the f— does that? I don’t know any mom that is like, ‘I totally sleep when they sleep.’”
