Kailyn Lowry Takes Breastfeeding on Demand Way Too Seriously (PHOTO)

We all know that Kailyn Lowry is a fantastic mama to her two little boys, Isaac and Lincoln. She's definitely a bit on the crunchy side of things and has been an outspoken advocate of breastfeeding, including nursing Linc in public. But is she taking her Super Mom powers too far?

The Teen Mom 2 star re-tweeted a pic a friend took of her nursing Lincoln on the road, but is breastfeeding a baby in a car seat safe?

The friend captioned the snap, "This is what you call #MommyDedication. When ya want the boob ya want the boob," and while we admire Kail's commitment to nurse exclusively for one whole year, we can't help but be a teensy bit worried for Lincoln's safety.

We're going to give her the benefit of the doubt here and hope the car's not in motion, and honestly, it's hard to tell from this photo whether it's moving or parked. According to R.N. Debbi Baer of The Car Seat Lady, breastfeeding a baby in a car seat in a moving vehicle is an incredibly risky move.

She explains that if there's a crash, mom's weight could slam down on the baby with the force of a thousand pounds or more, causing great bodily harm or even death. It puts mom at risk too, since even if she is wearing a seat belt, it will be too loose to keep her upper body from slamming her head into something.

Kail is a great mom, we just hope she isn't taking it too far and putting her kiddo at risk -- remember it's OK to pull over and nurse on the side of the road if baby really can't wait.

Did you know that nursing a baby in a car seat could be so dangerous?
