Today, a Dayton, Ohio woman was pulled over and given two citations for breastfeeding her daughter as she drove her other kids to school. Her response to the news: "If my child's hungry, I'm going to feed it." She noted that when she's driven long distances, she has pulled over to nurse.
Um, hello? It doesn't matter if you're just driving around the corner—NOT a good idea. The officers said her little girl's head was resting on the steering wheel. If this mother had gotten into an accident, that child could have been seriously injured. Or worse.
I'm all for breastfeeding, I did it myself. But this just makes my blood boil.
A public service announcement: Don't let your baby drink as you drive.
