Subject: Breastfeeding driver shocks NZ commuters

Written By: King Tut on 09/05/11 at 4:57 pm

A New Zealand mother-of-four has shocked fellow drivers by breastfeeding a baby at the wheel of a moving car with three young children in the back seat.  Police are attempting to track down the unidentified woman, who was seen driving in a "highly dangerous" fashion in Kamo, near Whangarei, by another driver.

Sergeant John Fagan told NewstalkZB that police received the car's registration number as a tip-off, with details also to be passed to the Child, Youth and Family Service.

Breastfeeding expert Dr Judith Galtry told the New Zealand Herald that the behaviour was "very strange".

"It's highly dangerous. I'm all for breastfeeding but not while driving a car," Dr Galtry said.

She said it was even dangerous for passengers in a car to breastfeed.

"If you've got a screaming baby, I can imagine the temptation, but I mean, really."

I guess if she were holding a cellphone in her hand, that would be illegal.

List of things to do while driving

- Drink coffee
- Light a cigarette
- Breastfeed your child
- Fiddle with the radio
- Turn on the A/C
