Woman Breastfeeds Baby While Riding a Motorbike
Posted on October 8, 2013
We often see in advertisements that breast milk is the best for babies. We can see that this mother obviously wants the best for her toddler by breastfeeding him, but the way she does it looks like it isn’t safe for the baby or herself either.
In China, a mother was spotted breastfeeding her baby while riding on a moped and was pulled over by the local police. She wasn’t fined, but was given a warning.
“She was risking her life, her son’s life and the lives of all the other road users,” the police said.
Passersby said that as she multi-tasked, the baby was unstable and that she wasn’t holding the baby because she was holding onto the bike handles.
As mothers, they should know not only what is best for their babies, but what is safe for them also. She might be really busy, but she could’ve stopped her bike and attended to her crying baby.
