The Philippine Airlines’ flight attendant identified as Patrisha Organo heard an infant crying soon after take off and approached the mother to find out if everything was okay. The mother explained to her that she had ran out of formula milk.

Organo, who has a young daughter at home, said she felt a “pinch in my heart” as there was no formula on the plane.

“I thought to myself, there’s only one thing I could offer and that’s my own milk. And so I offered,” she wrote.

A colleague brought the mother to the galley “where I breastfed the baby,” Organo, who describes herself as a breastfeeding advocate, wrote.

“I saw the relief on her mother’s eyes. 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.”

Organo said she knew the flight was going to be significant. Not only was she qualified on that flight for the role of cabin crew evaluator but she also “got to help.”

“Thank you, Lord for the gift of mother’s milk,” she wrote.

The US Food and Drug Administration recommends checking with a doctor before feeding a baby breast milk from another mother. According to the FDA’s website, feeding a baby breastmilk from a woman who is not the mother risks exposing the child to infectious diseases, chemical contaminants such as some illegal drugs and to a limited number of prescription drugs that might be in the human milk.
