Photos: Australian Senator becomes the first politician to Breastfeed in the Parliament

Australian senator,  Larissa Waters, has made history after she became the first politician to breastfeed a baby in the senate chamber. Larissa, a co-deputy leader for the Australian Greens party on Tuesday returned to the Senate for the first time since giving birth to her baby girl, Alia Joy, earlier this year.

 During a vote in the chamber, the 40-year-old proudly took off her bra and cover her breast with a white towel as she breastfed her baby girl in public.
Taking to her Facebook page, the excited mother wrote: 'I am so proud that my daughter Alia is the first baby to be breastfed in the federal parliament! And we need more family-friendly and flexible workplaces, and affordable childcare, for everyone.'

This is inappropriate. least she could have done was to go a private room in the same building and when her vote is needed, she will be called upon. What's next? Changing diapers?

This is one cause, I don't agree with. Breastfeeding should be private between a mother and a child. I don't get this whole breastfeeding in public and you think that is making a statement.

@omolewa,she is right,what about our poor mothers who breastfeed babies even in the market?is it because she is in the Parliament? I bet you the next thing you see now is Nigeria female senators breastfeeding in the chambers

You see, breast feeding without displaying the breast(s) is possible.
Good one!

Well, let's continiue 2 push the envelope. Next time let her bring her boyfriend and have intercourse in the chamber, it is the pride of her vagina. All these exhibitionists will not leave the rest of us alone.

Well civilized lady. She was probably sending a powerful message that maternal milk exclusively given for 14 months helps develop the most endowed human being physically,mentally,morally etc and contains the rare lactase and chloestrum never found elsewhere

She did not put out her breast in public all in the name of fashion...she was simply breastfeeding her child and there was no display of boob's okay!!! You thinking is warped &you need a reorientation!!! What a terrible mindset you have
