Breastfeeding is a touchy subject for many parents.
Should parents breastfeed their children? If so, when is an appropriate age to stop? So many questions and grey area have led many to steer clear of the issue.
While many have avoided the topic, music superstar Adele sounded off on the breastfeeding question and the pressure surrounding it during a concert at London’s 02 Arena.
The famous mom said that she enjoyed using baby formula but the pressure to breastfeed left her feeling inadequate when she wasn’t physically able to do it.
“I mean, I loved [using baby formula],” she said. “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.'”
“It’s f*cking ridiculous, and all those people who put pressure on us, you can go f*ck yourselves, alright?” she said. “Because it’s hard. Some of us can’t do it. I managed about nine weeks with my boobs.”
So it seems as if Adele is for breastfeeding. With that being said, don't worry if your body can't produce enough milk to partake in the matter, some things are out of your hands.
