Has Anyone Breastfed Their Baby While Driving in Car Seat? - Page 2

post #21 of 29

I have done it, but didn't have my seat belt on.  I know, bad, but baby comes first and I wasn't gonna unstrap her...

It's very unsafe to breastfeed while the baby is in the carseat, especially if the car is moving. It's ironic to hear someone do it and then say baby comes first.

I guess I was just thinking baby was so unhappy and then she was happen.  I didn't even think about what would happen in an accident until I read this post.  I guess I never really think there will be one, but that is what the car seat is for in the first place...  I would have been destroyed if I had hurt my baby girl while trying to just make her feel better...

There's also a concern about feeding the baby when their airway is already in a compromised position from the being in the car seat. That somewhat depends on age, but I wouldn't even give a bottle in the car. Pull over so everyone can get where you're going safely!

Got the point.  Won't do it again.  LOL  This baby unfortunately will not have problems with a bottle as EB will be being used. My other babies refused bottles.  This baby is going to have to learn as I work 12 hour shifts half the month...  What is the age for no feeding in that position?

haha, no drama here.  I really had no clue and I am not above admitting if I was in the wrong.  ;)

I don't know. I would think at least six months? Maybe not until they're out of the infant bucket.

I've done it and still do. It's not comfy and may not be super safe, but it works.
