At just 11 weeks old, tiny Alia Joy is blissfully unaware that she has made political history. The daughter of Australian politician Larissa Waters became the first baby to be breastfed in parliament.
The Australian Greens co-deputy leader returned to the Senate for the first time since giving birth to her second child earlier this year.
The 40-year-old proudly breastfed her youngest daughter during a vote in the chamber on Tuesday.
She later tweeted: “So proud that my daughter Alia is the first baby to be breastfed in the federal Parliament! We need more #women & parents in Parli”
She also shared an image of Australian MP Kirstie Marshall, who was ejected from the Victorian Parliament in 2003 for breastfeeding her 11-day-old daughter, Charlotte.
Congratulations to them.
