Multitasking Mother Pulled Over For Breastfeeding While Driving


While I am a big supporter of women having the right to breast feed in public, perhaps there are some limits that should be set. Like, say, not breastfeeding and driving at the same time.

Genine Compton of Dayton, Ohio, was pulled over on Thursday morning after police spotted her breastfeeding her baby (and talking on her cell phone!) while driving her other children to school. “If my child’s hungry, I’m going to feed it,” Compton, who is facing 180 days for child endangerment, says. She also claims she will feed and drive again, if her baby requires it. Genine! If your baby needs to eat, that’s fine. But it’s probably best for both of you if you stop the car and get off the phone first, no? [WHIO.TV]
