Fined: Police say the woman was breastfeeding a one-year-old baby while driving

A mum caught breastfeeding a baby while driving on a busy road told a police officer she did it to stop her child’s “out of control” screaming.

The woman was stopped by a traffic officer following reports of a small child in the driver’s seat of a car on a highway just outside Seattle in the US.

But Trooper Rocky Oliphant, of Washington State Patrol, got a bit of a surprise when he approached the Honda Accord after making a “welfare stop” in Everett.

To his astonishment, on peering through the driver’s side window, he noticed that the woman was in fact breastfeeding a one-year-old baby behind the wheel.

He told the New York Daily News he had never seen anything quite like it.

A seven-year veteran of the force, Trooper Oliphant said: “It would be terrible if I didn’t stop her and made sure the child was safe.”

Police allege that the woman had been breastfeeding while driving.

Speaking to the Daily News spokesman Trooper Mark Francis said: “Her reasoning for this was the baby screams out of control when he gets hungry.”

The incident happened at around 7pm yesterday.
