Flight attendant breastfeeds passenger’s crying baby

Share

'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.

As other passengers stared at the crying infant, Organo said she chose to assist the mother in the only way she knew how.

Organo, who has a almost six-month-old daughter, said her line administrator led the passenger to the galley where she then breastfed the woman's baby until she fell asleep. "And so I offered", she shared.

The passenger and her baby had been at the airport since 9.00pm the previous night, and Patrisha stepped in to help by breastfeeding the baby.

Organo, who has been a flight attendant with Philippine Airlines for four years, Yahoo Lifestyle reported, felt the need to help the desperate mother.

And as a sweet end to her sweet gesture, Yahoo Lifestyle reported that Organo was promoted to Cabin Crew Evaluator on the flight.

"I felt a pinch in my heart", she continued. But suddenly after takeoff, she heard a baby start to cry.

Patrisha Organo earned praise online after stepping into the breach when the child's mother ran out of formula after take-off.

"I thought to myself, there's only one thing I could offer and that's breastfeeding the baby myself".

From dealing with unruly passengers, to bringing food and drink, and sometimes even to landing the plane as the case in 2016 when a flight attendant on a Boeing 747 with 195 people on board helped land the plane when the co-pilot passed out somewhere over France. On November 6, she was scheduled to undergo a "check flight" to be able to qualify as Evaluator, which is one of the duties of an Assistant Line Administrator.

The mother said she had come up short on her baby formula.

"I saw the relief in her mother's eyes", writes Organo.

The baby quieted down and nodded off during the feed, making the mother express gratitude toward Organo.

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

"The other passengers had no idea what was going on", she recalls.

"But later on, just before I left, the mother sincerely thanked me for all of my help".
