Busted for Breastfeeding While Biking

Here in South Dakota (and many more states across the country) local government is trying to cut down on the amount of car accidents by banning texting while driving (though I got passed on I-229 last night by a woman driving with her knees, texting and doing 75 in a 65, but that’s another story)
I understand the intent behind the new law. Trying to cut down on distracted driving, but how far will the laws go? From switching stations on the radio to pre-teens fighting in the back seat to a crying baby because he’s hungry, will they all get banned?
And speaking of crying hungry babies, I get that a mother’s instinct is to feed them, but while driving? And worse yet, while riding a bicycle?? Yep, it happened, and the mom was ticketed.
What do or did you do in situations like that? Driving/biking with a hungry baby. Do you pull over? Wait til you get home? Or feed the baby and keep going?
