Alanis Morissette, 45, revealed last week that she gave birth to her third child on August 8, via her Instagram account.

The “Ironic” songstress named her newborn Winter Mercy Morissette-Treadway and was flooded with congratulation messages.

Since the announcement, Alanis has shared an intimate photo of her breastfeeding the baby. The “Hands Clean” hitmaker is raising awareness for World Breastfeeding Month and wants to encourage more women to breastfeed their children.

The close-up image has racked up over 38,000 likes within the past couple of days, proving to have made an impact on her followers.

The comments section has had a mixed reaction, getting plenty of people talking.

“Just because its natural doesn’t mean we need a close-up shot of it. I mean, pooping is natural too,” one user wrote.

“I agree. So is picking my nose – no need to share!!” another replied.

However, lots of positive messages were written by those who appreciated Morissette for her upload.

“Most beautiful thing in the world I love watching my wife it is so fascinating what a woman can do!” a fan wrote.

“My babe and I are breastfeeding 2 1/2 yrs strong! Go, Mama!!! Love to you and your family,” another fan commented.

“Nothing I miss more about breastfeeding my babies. Your post made my heart happy,” another declared.
