Pink: I'm a breastfeeding militant

Pink: I'm a breastfeeding militant

If you're one of those people who shoots dirty looks at women who breastfeed in public, stay away from rocker Pink.

The singer is in Sydney for a month and won't tolerate any criticism of her decision to breastfeed baby Willow, 15 months, in restaurants, cafes or anywhere else she chooses.

"I will start fights in restaurants," Pink told British talk show host Alan Carr last week.

"I will fight. Hold my baby," she said, laughing.

When Carr asked if Pink considers herself "one of those militant breastfeeder women" the star replied "You bet!" saying she sometimes goes out of her way to try to provoke a reaction from passers-by.

"I do. I do on purpose," she said. "I think breastfeeding is healthy and natural and it’s a comfort to my baby."

But while she is a staunch advocate of breastfeeding, Pink admits it forced her to change certain things about herself — the biggest being her famous nipple rings.

"I had to take them out because it was like a sprinkler," she said.

She has also had to change her party-hard lifestyle, restricting her alcohol consumption and getting more sleep.

"Babies don't respect hangovers," she said. "No matter what time we go to bed, she wakes up at 5am. So I party from maybe like 9pm to 10pm. And I party hard for that one hour. I get it all in."
