Is it ever worth the risk?? Why do women even think about BFing while they are driving?
Shocked police have issued safety warnings after finding several mothers breastfeeding while driving in a recent road blitz.
Operation Safe Kids ran from January 9 to 19 in response to a recent spate of serious crashes involving children who were passengers.
Officers stopped and spoke to three mothers who were caught breast feeding their infants while driving a vehicle on the motorway.
Auckland Motorways Manager Inspector Shanan Gray says his officers were shocked.
"It puts everyone in an extremely dangerous situation. If they had to stop their vehicle suddenly, or they were involved in a serious crash, the infant would surely be ejected from the vehicle," he said.
