Whoa, Momma!

Breastfeeding while driving lands Momma in hot water



Mom_driving_2We've all been guilty of doing more than one thing while we are driving. Usually it's talking on the phone, putting on makeup or putting in a DVD for a long drive with the kids.

But this Ohio mom may have gone a little too far with the multitasking. She is facing six months in jail and a fine for talking on the phone AND BREASTFEEDING while driving.

Now, mom says that her baby was hungry and she wasn't going to ler him or her go hungry. And police officials say they aren't concerned about any public nudity that might have occurred. Rather, they are concerned that the child was unrestrained in the car.

Hey Mommas, I am all for breastfeeding when your child gets hungry. But I am sure that it is always better to pull over and do that rather than continuing on your way.
