A meteorologist has been praised for wearing her one-year-old baby son as she presented the weather forecast.

Susie Martin, a television meteorologist for US company Praedictix, wore the child in a harness during the broadcast.

The tot behaved beautifully during the broadcast, even drifting off to sleep halfway through.

A clip, circulated by ‘Good Morning America’ on its YouTube channel, has garnered praise from parents, who celebrated Susie’s resourcefulness as she went about her day job.

While one commenter accused Susie of “ using the weather time news slot to promote a product,” the other responses were overwhelmingly positive. 

One user commented: “This is so cute mother and baby day on the job, lol ha ha have a good one guys!!”

Another comment simply reads: ” The beauty of motherhood“.

Another user added: “Women wrap their kids to their bodies in Europe all the time. Sometimes it’s truly the only way you’re going to get things done in your day.”

In a post on the Praedictix blog, Susie explained the motivation behind her decision.

She said: “Babywearing has been a passion of mine since my son came into my world. It has been an invaluable tool for me as a mother and helped me and my son bond during the early stages of infancy.

“Not only that, but it was and still is incredibly liberating to be able to comfort my child whilst doing other tasks, which has helped me be a happier mom. To this day, it is a source of comfort and calmness for him.”

She added: “I’m fortunate to work for a company that has been very supportive of me–not just as an employee, but as a mother.”
