LAS CRUCES, N. M. (WRIC) — A New Mexico firefighter may be in hot water after a picture of his wife breastfeeding their infant son while wearing his uniform surfaced online.
The photo was taken in February. The mother was attempted to stand as a model for moms who are firefighters and are breastfeeding.
Photographer Tara Ruby says the message behind the picture is that you can be a full-time, breastfeeding mom while working a full-time job and do both well.
The fire department is reportedly investigating to determine if the firefighter will face disciplinary action.
