Icelandic Politician Breastfeeds Her Baby While Speaking In Parliament. See Photos

Icelandic Member of Parliament Unnur Brá Konráðsdóttir had a choice to make this week when she was asked a question in parliament. She could either put down her newborn daughter and stop breastfeeding while she addressed her fellow politicians, or she could do both. Konráðsdóttir did both.

 Explaining that she was unexpectedly asked a question to defend a bill while feeding her daughter , Konráðsdóttir took to the podium and continued to nurse her child as she spoke about a proposal she had made.

“[My child] was hungry, and I wasn’t expecting to speak, so I started feeding her,” Konráðsdóttir said, according to The Huffington Post.

“Then a representative asked a question about a proposal I had put forward, which I had to answer. I could choose to yank her off and leave her crying with another representative, or I could bring her with me, and I thought that would be less disruptive.”

For one minute on Wednesday Konráðsdóttir, who is the chair of the Icelandic Parliament’s Judicial Affairs and Education Committee, answered the question.

Her colleagues appeared unfazed and continued the debate on immigration issues.
