Flight attendant breastfeeds passenger’s baby

Patrisha Organo said she was being evaluated for a promotion during a Tuesday morning Philippine Airlines domestic flight and everything was going smoothly until she heard an infant's cry.

Click "See First" under the "Following" tab to see Briefly.co.za News on your News Feed! The baby calmed down and fell asleep while feeding, causing the mother to thank Organo.

Instead of telling the mom her baby couldn't cry for more than five minutes, like this United Airlines flight attendant did back in September, Organo kindly offered her own milk.

"I saw the relief on [sic] her mother's eyes", she said.

Organo told the line administrator on her flight of her intention to feed the child and was instantly encouraged. Rather than leave her to handle the baby alone, Organo took her help a step further and brainstormed a solution.

As per the World Health Organization, moms ought to assess their individual conditions when choosing if their infant requires breastmilk or another sustenance source, such as formula.

"I was right, the flight's gonna be special, so special not only because I got qualified as an Evaluator but I got to help", she wrote. I thought to myself, there's only one thing I could offer and that's my own milk. "There's no formula milk onboard", Organo wrote.

"The gesture was lovely of the flight attendant. but you do not know her health issues", read a comment on Organo's Facebook thread. Facebook users also responded with comments praising the flight attendant's act, with one person even calling her a "hero".

She added that she could relate with the baby's cry because she has a nine months old baby, Jade.

As soon as I could help the baby and the mother I felt so happy - I cannot put into words how fulfilled I felt.

Some mothers choose to partake in informal milk sharing, which comes with risks like contamination or the spread of disease or drugs used by the milk donor to the baby. With almost 34,000 shares, at the time of writing, Organo has been showered with lot of love. But she never could have imagined just how special it would turn out.
