"Mother Caught Driving while Breastfeeding."

Ok, I’m sorry, but some people are just idiots. This woman is the perfect example of one. Not only was she breastfeeding her child while driving, but she was also on the phone. What hand was she using to actually drive with?

In the interview, she said she “will take the advice of the officers into consideration, but she may breast-feed her baby while driving in the future if she feels that it is necessary.” WOW.

I am all for feeding your baby when they need it. That’s why if Parker is screaming because he’s hungry while we’re in the car, I will find a parking lot and pull over to feed him. I won’t even feed him in the front seat because I’m afraid of some random idiot hitting my car and deploying the airbags.

I am a HUGE advocate for child safety. If I see someone driving in a car and their kid is climbing all over the car, I have no problem rolling down my window and telling them how stupid they are (the parents, not the kid). I just don’t understand why people think “it won’t happen to my kid.” Sure, we all hope and pray that our children will be safe and no harm will come to them, but isn’t it our jobs as parents to protect them as much as possible?

I’m not saying that we should put our kids in bubbles. While that would be nice, kids are kids. They will climb trees, break arms, and have their hearts broken. But, if my child is hurt because I neglected to put them in a car seat, I wouldn’t be able to live with the guilt, knowing that it was my fault they were hurt.

This woman should have her child taken away from her and she should never, ever be allowed behind the wheel of a car again. I personally think she should be shot, but that is just my opinion. And, until I become queen of the world, we’ll just have live with her going to prison. Hopefully for more than just 180 days.

    What the heck is wrong with people. This is by far one of the craziest stories I have heard yet.

    give her a break….i’m sure the baby was watching the road for her!

    seriously, she needs to learn to slow down! even the most ardent of multi-taskers would tell her to go with the flow!

    I just saw this in our local news today: http://www.heraldextra.com/content/view/301605/17/
    The infant was thrown from the car and struck by a car going the other direction. Can you imagine being the person innocently driving the other way and the trauma of that situation?! Sure nobody used to use seatbelts, but speed limits were also a lot slower, roads were less busy, and cars were sturdier. For heaven’s sake, use a brain cell!!!

    Okay, this woman is an idiot. I’m sorry, if your baby is that hungry, PULL OFF THE ROAD before feeding it. I so agree with you on this one.
