"You've got to do what you've got to do".

An Icelandic politician has been praised worldwide after delivering a parliamentary speech while breastfeeding.

Despite being unexpectedly called to respond to a bill, Unnur Bra Konradsdottir, continued to breastfeed her six-week-old daughter in front of fellow colleagues and television cameras - with not a care in the world.

"I either had to tear the baby girl off 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", Ms Konradsdottir said.

And Ms Konradsdottir was right. No one cared. "It is the most natural thing in the world. It's like any job, you've got to do what you've got to do", she told AFP.
