Women often get “in trouble” for breastfeeding in public places. Mothers are busy people. I’ve been known to whip out the boob anywhere and anytime my child needed it. You may have breastfed in some strange situations, places, or positions, but I bet you never tried this!
I was tempted to breastfeed while driving before, but I recognized the compromised safety such practice would entail, so I would always take to them to pull over to the side of the road. If someone else was driving, I was known to crawl into the backseat and lay across the seat to breastfeed so we could keep on truckin….that’s nothing compared to the Chinese woman pictured above.
SF Gate reports:
And now an unnamed woman in Yuzhou, China, was caught on camera and by the police breast-feeding her baby while driving.
This mom’s situation is even more extreme because she wasn’t behind the wheel of a car. She was allegedly weaving through traffic on a moped when her 18-month-old son started fussing and she pulled up her shirt to feed him, the Huffington Post reported. Adding to the dangerous scenario, neither mother or child were wearing helmets.
The woman was stopped by police and simply scolded (not even slapped with a fee) for her actions, according to Geobeats. “She was risking her life, her son’s life and the lives of all other road users,” a law enforcement spokesperson told Geobeats. “We told her that if she carried on we would confiscate her bike.”
