Pump It, Kim Zolciak! (But When You Get Home!)

Thanks Huff Post for this pro-nursing but anti-safe driving bit of celebrity mom news.
Kim Zolciak of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is such a busy lady that the only time she finds to pump breast milk is while she’s driving.
No, she does not have time to pull over. She lets her 14-year old daughter steer while she pumps away. But don’t worry, the mom controls the foot pedals.
"It saves me time," she said later of pumping while driving. "That way I can get right back, feed the baby. He's a tank. He eats like crazy."
Perhaps legislation against texting and driving is not what we should be fighting for at all. Perhaps, just perhaps, the problem is a little bit larger than the use of phones while driving.

I think we might need to reexamine how busy our lives are and what is the most important. And perhaps we need a reminder that while driving, our focus should be on the road and NOT on anything else that involves the use of our hands and attention.


  1. Not sure what the problem is... I totally did that too.... oh wait, I was in the back seat next to the baby while my husband drove.... AAAAAAHHHH!!!!

  2. I can't even imagine how she'd be comfortable enough to do this behind a steering wheel!
