Now that Morissette is a mother of three, she has decided to take off the metaphorical gloves when it comes to normalizing breastfeeding. The singer is dedicated to the cause! According to People, Morissette tagged Instagram accounts such as "Stop Censoring Motherhood," "Normalize Breastfeeding Official" and "The Badass Breastfeeder."
The 45-year-old iconic singer posted the picture of her newest child on Saturday with the caption "Snug as a bug in a milky rug." She used the hashtags "world breastfeeding month" and "not always easy peasy."
The "not always easy peasy" hashtag is no doubt in support to other mothers who have trouble with breastfeeding at times. There are many reasons why a newborn won't latch but whatever the reason it can be frustrating and exhausting not to mention extremely worrisome for the mother even if the mother is a mother of three like Morissette. It's nice to know that she uses her platform to connect with other mothers and provide support.
Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway was born on August 8 to Morissette and her husband, Mario "Souleye" Treadway, an American rapper and hip hop artist. The couple's third child and second son joins big brother, Ever Imre, 8 and sister, Onyx Solace, 3.

We can already tell that Morissette is the kind of mom who stands up for what she believes in. We wouldn't have expected anything less from her and we can't wait to see what else she has up her mom sleeve!
Breastfeeding may not always be easy peasy but talking about it can really help and knowing that you're not alone can make a huge difference as well.
You rock, Alanis!
