Chinese Mom Busted For Breastfeeding On A Moped Is Way Dangerous But Way Impressive
I can agree that what this mommy was doing was terribly dangerous and it’s fantastic that the police pulled her over, but I also can’t help myself from being totally impressed. According to Orange UK, a mom in central China was driving her moped while holding her 18-month-old infant in her arms. The baby started fussing, so she whipped up her shirt and started nursing him.
“She was risking her life, her son’s life and the lives of all the other road users,” said a police spokesman.
“We told her that if she carried on we would confiscate her bike,” they added.
I am not sure I would even be able to drive a moped, much less hold a baby on one. Actually, the idea of having a baby even near a moped scares me to death. Wait, scratch that, if I even saw a photo of a moped I would shield my child’s eyes from it because even that scares me to death.
Breastfeeding can be hard! While nursing all my babies I even had trouble with simple tasks, like changing the channel on the remote or drinking water while I was doing it. Half the time I would end up spilling on myself or on my baby’s head. I had issues turning the pages of magazines. Until I had a second child and a lot of practice I could barely go through a nursing session without some sort of mishap happening, knocking something over, dropping my baby blanket, having breast milk squirt everywhere. This mom is pretty badass that she can handle driving, holding a baby, and nursing it all at the same time. Not that I am agreeing with her behavior, but come on, that’s some top level multi-tasking right there.
