Adele certainly didn’t hold back when she was asked about “breastfeeding mummies” – a topic that provoked the anger of mothers when Jamie Oliver suggested it was “easy”.
Adele, who has a three-year-old son Angelo with partner Simon Konecki, responded to one fans question in relation to Jamie’s comments on breastfeeding –
“It’s f—ing ridiculous, and all those people who put pressure on us, you can go f— yourselves, alright?” she said. “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.’
“It’s not funny that’s how some of us think,” she added.

Her comment comes off the back of Jamie Oliver recently stating “We have the worst breastfeeding in the world.” in reference to England.
“It’s easy, it’s more convenient, it’s more nutritious, it’s better, it’s free.”
WHO (World Health Organisation) recommends new mothers start breastfeeding within the first hour after birth. Exclusive breastfeeding is recommended up to six months of age, with continued breastfeeding along with appropriate complementary foods up to two years of age or beyond.
She sure told him!
