The New Zealand premier is currently breastfeeding three-month-old Neve,meaning "it was a very practical decision" to bring the infant on the six-dayinternational trip.
Neve is actually nearby me most of the time in New Zealand, Ms Ardern saidaccording to NZ's NewsHub.

The PM told the New Zealand Herald she would bear the cost of her partner'stravel, as "he's primarily travelling to care for Neve".
Ms Ardern returned to work in early August after spending "the fastest sixweeks" of her life on maternity leave.
Prime Minister Ardern is showing that no one is better qualified torepresent her country than a working mother, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric toldReuters.
Just 5 per cent of the world's leaders are women, so we need to make themas welcome here as possible," he added.
