  • WOW. I would never think to endanger my child and nurse while I drive. That is insane and to top it off she was on the phone. Hell NO! What was she thinking. You can multi task at home but not in the car especially with your children in it.

  • How many hands does this woman have? Unless she's endowed with more than the usual two, her actions are reckless and insane. She's endangering her b/fing infant, the other kids in the car, herself, and everybody else on the road. Isn't that baby supposed to be in a carseat in the back seat of the car? She needs to plan a little better, either feed the baby before driving the other kids to school, or something. Hell to the YES give her a BIG whopping ticket.

  • I'm glad she was breastfeeding but I would have pulled over.
    There's no reason to take your baby out of a carseat while the car is in motion.

  • Well said pagan! I second that. On my more compassionate side, here is this woman who is trying hard to do it all and is making very poor decisions in the midst of her chaos. I actually feel for her. It is poor time management and she needs to adjust that a bit better. Haven't we all just gone a little coo-coo trying to be super Mom and often times fail and look back and think, geez that wasn't such a smart decision........

  • Yes, it is endangerment and very lacking in common sense. Fussing a little before getting fed will not kill a baby, being an unrestrained passenger directly in front of the airbag in an accident WILL. I have three kids, two in different schools with different pick up/drop off times so I understand being frazzled and harried in the mornings, but I think this was very poor judgement on her part.
