Australian Politician Makes History By Breastfeeding While Passing A Motion In Parliament

Australian Politician Senator Larissa Waters breastfeeding her daughter Alia Joy in the federal parliament is slowly becoming an iconic image.


Waters breastfed her 14-week-old baby daughter while passing a motion on black lung disease thereby becoming the first mother to do so. This feat comes just one month after she became the first MP to nurse a baby in the chamber.

In May, Waters had said, “I am so proud that my daughter Alia is the first baby to be breastfed in the Federal Parliament,” Senator Waters said back in May. We need more women and parents in Parliament. And we need more family-friendly and flexible workplaces, and affordable childcare, for everyone.
