Australian senator Larissa Waters made history last month by becoming became the first woman to breastfeed in the Federal Parliament. And as the history repeats again, she was again spotted feeding her 14- week old baby while moving a motion in the Senate in Canberra.

She tweeted:

“First time I’ve had to move a Senate motion while breastfeeding! And my partner in crime moved her own motion just before mine, bless her,”

Back in May, she had said, “I am so proud that my daughter Alia is the first baby to be breastfed in the Federal Parliament.”

“We need more women and parents in Parliament. And we need more family-friendly and flexible workplaces, and affordable childcare, for everyone,” she further added.
