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.’
