Australian senator Larissa Waters said it's "tragic" that it's taken this long for someone to be able to breastfeed in the parliament.

Greens politician Larissa Waters was left with "mixed feelings" after photos of her breastfeeding her 11-week-old daughter in the Australian Senate made their way around the globe this week.

Waters was breastfeeding her second child, Alia Joy, in her office just before 4pm on Tuesday when she received a phone call saying the motions in the Senate were moving faster than expected.

"She was still on the boob, so I had to take her off, run down there, [and] put her back on when I was back in the chamber," Waters told BuzzFeed News.
