This comes a year after Waters helped push to extend breastfeeding rules in the Senate to include caring for an infant, according to The Courier Mail.

"If she's hungry, that's what you do, you feed your baby", said the senator. Most new parents don't have that luxury. Children were banned from the chamber under previous rules. Similar rules have been adopted by Australia's House of Representatives.

Senator Waters wrote on Facebook: "We need more women and parents in Parliament".
