Icelandic MP breastfeeds baby daughter during parliamentary speech

Unnur Bra Konradsdottir, MP for Iceland’s Independence Party, breastfed her baby girl while giving a speech at the Althingi Parliament Yesterday.



This has never happened before in the country and is probably unique in the world. Attitudes towards breastfeeding in public are considered to be very liberal in Iceland, as this event clearly demonstrates.

The politician explains why she brought her baby with her to the podium during a speech on immigration law.
Unnur Bra Konradsdottir quote: “She was hungry and I had not expected to go to the pulpit. Then another MP was giving statements on a bill that I put forward on the behalf of the Judicial Affairs Committee, to which I had to respond. So I either had to tear the baby girl of me and leave her crying with the MP sitting next to me or just take her with me and I thought it would cause less disturbance to take her with me”.


“She has been with me at the Parliament almost since she was born so my fellow MPs are used to her. She has attended numerous committee meetings with me over the final days of this parliament. Usually she is very calm and when we cast our votes she is sound asleep. So there have never been any incidents before”, Unnur Bra Konradsdottir said.

I don't like your attitude, be a strong woman and believe that someday everything will be alright. Just work hard and pray hard and miracle will happen. Stop using the word poverty on yourself, the tongue is a strong weapon, only proclaim good things in your life. Your Angel will locate you someday

Honestly@ Stella, please stop enabling White Berry's comments. It's becoming nauseating! Haba!
Every post is an avenue to beg now. How does this post about breastfeeding turn into a pity party?? No one is going to help you at this rate. Change your attitude. Do something useful with your life rather than posting self pity comments all over the place. You are not handicapped or on a sick bed. You are able bodied...go out and find work!!!!

If I were her I will do same.

No big deal about this...

Spanish Lantern said...

Wow she is really brave. I'm not against breastfeeding in public but Pls try and cover the breast with a little cloth. Even if you've birth 5 kids, exposing your breast in public is still a form of exposing your nakedness.

Mrs. Romas said...

Breastfeeding is one of the most natural thing, i don't know what the fuss is all about!
Nigerian mothers has been breastfeeding their babies since the beginning of time, with no one staring at them with an evil eyes, it was the same westerners who introduced them to formulas.

I breastfed my son everywhere, although i wore breastfeeding bra.

SWAG LAFRESH said...

James' hater said...

For my Anglican church na war o. U must not breast feed in church. No chairs outside either.

Cynthia said...

Hahahahaha @ Tilly she is a public figure remember

ify onyekwelu said...

So you will willingly hand over your child to caregivers /nanny when you have an opportunity and options to carry your child to work? Naaawaaoo! I'm surprised at your response sha.
Madam MP, I really commend you.
Wish that we can be able to take our children to work, till they're one year old then, you can register him/her in a crèche or make use of nanny. Another way of encouraging exclusive breastfeeding, for those that intend practicing it.

ify onyekwelu said...

It's a big deal here, because I know that there're certain places where you can't even attempt breastfeeding your child eg in the Church. You have to go and find a secluded place to tend to your child.

Mao Akuh said...

@ANon 11.22 which Anglican Church? No come here dey LIE o. I have breastfed inside my church before but codedly.

Naija employers should provide rooms for Nursing Mothers working- to come with their babies to work abeg. This is what our Reps should do. A bill to make provision for NUrsing mothers to come with their babies provided they can pay the Nanny from their salary. Things go dey sweet dey go...haba!
