Firefighter reportedly under investigation for photo of wife breastfeeding in his uniform

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.
