    Mother Caught Driving While Breast-Feeding
    POSTED: 6:36 am MST March 2, 2009
    KETTERING, Ohio --

    A Dayton, Ohio, mother faces charges for breast-feeding her daughter while driving her other children to school, television station WHIO reported.

    Genine Compton was pulled over by Kettering police Thursday while taking her children to school.

    Police said Compton could have injured her child and others because she was breast-feeding and talking on the cell phone while driving the vehicle.

    Compton was issued citations for child endangerment and violating a child restraint law. Compton told the station, "If my child's hungry, I'm going to feed it."

    Police said it is against the law in Ohio to drive with a child in your lap. Children under 4 or 40 pounds must be properly restrained in a child safety seat.

    In this case, officers said Compton had the child in the lap with the baby's head up against the steering wheel. They said there was not only the risk of a crash but also deployment of the air bag.

    Compton said she will take the advice of the officers into consideration, but she may breast-feed her baby while driving in the future if she feels that it is necessary.

    She could face up to 180 days in jail and fines for the child endangerment citation.

    Mothers are idolized in our culture. But some, like mine, are not so nice. And
    some of them are child abusers and killers.

    Marybeth Tinning killed nine of her children over a period of years.
