Adele hits back against breastfeeding pressure

London: Oscar-winning singer Adele used her gig here as a platform to speak out against the pressure to breast feed.

The topic has been in the news after celebrity chef Jamie Oliver told LBC Radio that the country had a “problem” with women not breast feeding, reported Entertainment Weekly.

“It’s ridiculous. Because it’s hard. Some of us can’t do it. I managed about nine weeks. I mean, I loved (using formula).

“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.’,” Adele said.
