Flight attendant praised for breastfeeding stranger's baby mid-flight

Flight attendant praised for breastfeeding stranger's baby mid-flight

Flight attendant Patrisha Organo said she breastfed a wailing infant after the mother ran out of formula. That's exactly what happened to one mom when she was aboard a flight recently.

The mother gratefully accepted and followed the flight attendants back to the galley where Organo fed the woman's baby for her.

"You know the difference between a cry of hunger, a cry of sleepiness, or a cry of something else", Organo, who has a nine-month-old daughter, said.

However, the mother of the baby thanked the air hostess.

'She had been at the airport since the night before so had ran out of milk during the actual flight, which is what caused the baby to cry.

A self-confessed breastfeeding advocate, Organo's Facebook post earned widespread online with many admitting it brought them close to tears.

Organo, was on the flight as the final check to be qualified as a Cabin Crew Evaluator, she wrote on Facebook. Passing the check flight would be a big step in her flying career. "I tried to tell her to feed her hungry child", Organo wrote.

"When the mother told me that she had no formula milk for the child, and I knew that there was none on board, I knew I had to help", she explained. Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant. According to the World Health Organisation, mothers should evaluate their individual circumstances when deciding if their baby should consume donated breast milk or another nutrition source, like formula. I thought to myself, there's only one thing I could offer and that's my own milk. "And so I offered", Organo continued.

Basically, upon hearing the distressed baby, Organo went to check on the mother - and soon discovered the exhausted mother was out of formula.

Desperate to help her passengers, Patrisha, from Manila, Philippines, took it upon herself to breastfeed the crying baby.

'As a mother myself I knew the stress she would've been going through, ' Patrisha said. "I continued to feed the baby until she fell asleep".
