But she has already made political history in Australia by becoming the first baby to be breast fed in the Australian parliament.

Australian senator Larissa Waters has made history by breastfeeding her two-month-old infant in Parliament.

"And we need more family-friendly and flexible workplaces, and affordable child care, for everyone".

The milestone comes after Senator Waters instigated changes to Senate rules previous year, extending rules that already allowed breastfeeding in the chamber to allow new mothers and fathers to briefly care for their infants on the floor of Parliament.

On International Woman's Day, while Waters was still on maternity leave, the senator announced the birth of her daughter and hinted about what was to come.

Just before she returned to work this week, Waters told the newspaper she fully meant to make use of the new rule with Alia Joy.

State television said fighters and their relatives had started departing Barzeh for rebel-held Idlib province in north-west Syria. Syrian state TV said some 60 buses and ambulances of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent were in Barzeh for the evacuations.

The milestone moment comes after she helped introduce rule changes which now allow mums and dads to briefly care for their infants while on the parliament floor.

Previously parliamentary rules stated children were technically banned in the chamber and breastfeeding mothers were given a proxy vote.

Waters took to Twitter to share the news with her followers. It is great to see it is able to occur now in the Senate.

According to BBC, under Australia's old rules, members of parliament (MPs) could only take babies into the public galleries or offices of the parliament building, MPs' babies not be considered as "visitors" who are prohibited from entering Parliament.

Waters is the latest in a slew of women politicians who have nursed their babies in parliaments throughout the world.
