Fight attendant breastfed a passenger's crying baby

Fight attendant breastfed a passenger's crying baby

Patrisha Organo (24) is a Philippine Airlines flight attendant. "Teary-eyed, she told me that she ran out of formula milk", she said.

"Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant", Organo recalls of the scene in her Facebook post.

"I felt a pinch in my heart", she wrote.

"Thank you, Lord for the gift of mother's milk", she wrote. In fact, the Human Milk Banking Association of North America collects and pasteurizes breast milk for mothers who can't breastfeed their own babies. "She said, 'Yes yes!' but in her language", Organo says.

It bears noting that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns using breast milk from another mother comes with risks and recommends consulting the child's health care provider beforehand.

Organo, 24, is a mom to a 9-month-old baby, the New York Post reported. I thought that this flight's gonna be so special as this is a big step. Her Facebook post featured a photo of her holding the passenger's baby, but she edited the picture to obscure the baby's face so as to protect "her family's privacy".

In the early morning hours, Organo heard a sound coming from the cabin - it was the cry of a baby in distress.


Filipina flight attendant Patrisha Organo shared on Tuesday a special flight encounter after she breastfed a passenger's baby.

"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.

Organo remembers recognising the look of relief in the mother's eyes as the baby was finally able to eat.

"The gesture was attractive of the flight attendant. but you do not know her health issues", read a comment on Organo's Facebook thread. "The mother sincerely thanked me", she said.

An air stewardess breastfed a crying baby after the mother ran out of formula milk shortly after take-off.

As of this posting, Organo's Facebook entry has garnered over 91,000 reactions, 17, 629 shares, and over 3,500 comments. "But as a mother myself I knew the stress she would've been going through".
