Flight attendant goes viral for breastfeeding passenger’s crying baby during a flight
Patrisha Organo, a flight attendant on a Philippine Airlines flight, went above and beyond when a young child started crying soon after takeoff.
In a post that Organo uploaded to Facebook, she revealed that the infant started fussing as soon as the plane left the airport. She described the cry as one that “will make you want to do anything to help.”
As a way to check if she could do something for the passenger, Organo walked to the mother of the infant and asked if everything was okay.
NO FORMULA MILK
In tears, the lady revealed that she had run out of baby formula and that her child was hungry. When Organo heard that, she felt a “pinch” in her heart. The worst part of it is that there was no formula milk on the plane.
After thinking for a couple of seconds, Organo realized that there was still one thing she could offer to help: her own milk. The flight attendant is the proud mother of a nearly-one-year-old girl, so she was still able to breastfeed when the situation took place.
As soon as Organo told the mother that she could breastfeed the infant if she wanted to, the relief on her eyes was evident. A few minutes later, the flight attendant took the infant with her and started breastfeeding her. She even took a photo and attached it to the Facebook post.
“I continued to feed the baby until she fell asleep. I escorted her back to her seat and just before I left, the mother sincerely thanked me,” added the proud mother and flight attendant, who said that she knew the flight would be special as it was her first time in a new position, cabin crew evaluator.
PRAISING HER ACTION
Several people took to the comment section to share their thoughts on the kind gesture. Most of them praised Organo, comparing her with an angel. Others pointed out that God placed her in that flight for that exact reason.
ANOTHER HELPFUL FLIGHT ATTENDANT
Thankfully, several individuals are willing to help some parents when it comes to calming down fussy children, and Rachel Yuen witnessed it firsthand. During a flight from Honolulu to Los Angeles, the son of a fellow passenger wouldn’t stop crying.
Even though the mother tried everything to calm him, she had two more children to take care of. After 40 minutes, one of the flight attendants held the baby and rocked him while walking up and down the aisle until the baby finally calmed down.
