Adele Has Criticised People Putting Pressure On New Mums To Breastfeed
Adele is the best. She has the lowest tolerance for bullshit in the world, and we love her for it.
Yet another example of this is her reaction to being asked her opinion on breastfeeding while she was greeting members of her audience at London's 02 Arena.
Breastfeeding has been in the news lately, with chef Jamie Oliver coming under fire for saying it was easy to breastfeed, which angered many women who struggle to do so.
According to The Independent, Adele, who has a three-year-old replied:
“It’s f**king ridiculous, and all those people who put pressure on us, you can go f**k yourselves, alright? Because it's hard. Some of us can't do it! I managed about nine weeks with my boobs (I mean I trip over them – I’ve got a very good push-up bra). 'Some of my mates got post-natal depression from the way those midwives were talking. Idiots.'
“Breastfeed if you can but don’t worry, [formula milk] Aptamil’s just as good. I mean, I loved it, all I wanted to do was breastfeed and then I couldn’t and then I felt like, ‘if I was in the jungle now back in the day, my kid would be dead because my milk’s gone.’”
WHAT A SOUND WOMAN.
