Genine Compton does.The 39-year-old Ohio woman was charged with child endangerment after another driver reported that Compton was breastfeeding and talking on a cell phone while driving. That's one pretty impressive (but maybe not so wise) multi-tasking mama. I recently wrote a post about what other tasks moms get done while breastfeeding, and not one mentioned driving.

The police tracked Compton down by her license plate number and she said she would not let her child go hungry. The legal concern is not that she was breastfeeding in public but that she had a baby in her lap (rather than in a car seat). Compton faces up to 180 days in jail and an $1,800 fine if convicted.

What do you think? Should she go to jail?
