Woman given $ ticket while breastfeeding baby in parked car - NBC2 News
Busy moms have to multitask, but a woman in Yuzhou, China, recently got stopped by police for breastfeeding her month-old son while riding on a moped. The young mom was allegedly weaving her scooter through traffic while holding her month-old son in her arms, when the kid started crying, the Hollywood Gossip reported. Witnesses said the mom started to breastfeed the child while keeping a hand on the handlebars, Orange News reported. In June , Catherine Donkers, 29, was accused of child endangerment for trying to breastfeed her daughter while driving from Detroit to Pittsburgh on the Ohio Turnpike. She was also cited for not having a license. Donkers told ABC News that she thought the citation was out of line and planned to fight it all the way. She reportedly had the child in the lap with the baby's head up against the steering wheel, adding not only the risk of injury if there was a crash, but possible deployment of the airbag.
Last week, Genine Compton, a mother living outside Dayton, Ohio, drove her children to school. Apparently the youngest — who police believe is a little less than two years old — needed to eat. Right away. Oh, and she was reportedly talking on her cellphone, at least part of the time. You can listen to the entirety of the call here.
