PAL's Flight attendant breastfeeds stranger’s infant during flight




Filipino mom’s are the best.

It maybe cultural or customary, but I personally think its already in our DNA’s as Filipino’s.

Starting from pre-natal, the would be mom would already think of the best things for her baby.

One of these important things is the breastmilk for the baby, from child birth the Filipino mom’s customarily will eat soupy dishes (masasabaw) with the super nutritious moringa leaves (malunggay). Even prior to child birth the Filipino mom would eat everything healthy for her baby.

But it is entirely different when another mom would give or donate her very own breastmilk to another’s baby. This is one of the highest selfless act of kindness, and if the world can have millions of moms like this, the world be a better place for all infants.

Philippine Airline flight attendant Ms. Patrisha Organo just did that to one of the passenger’s baby.

“I heard an infant’s cry, a cry that will make you want to do anything to help. I approached the mother and asked if everything’s okay, I tried to tell her to feed her hungry child. Teary-eyed, she told me that she ran out of formula milk. Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant.
I felt a pinch in my heart. There’s no formula milk onboard. I thought to myself, there’s only one thing I could offer and that’s my own milk. And so I offered.”

And her selfless act was all the infant needed.

“The baby started rooting, she was so hungry.
I saw the relief on her mother’s eyes. I continued to feed the baby until she fell asleep."

I BREASTFED A STRANGER’S BABY INFLIGHT

Yesteday, I was scheduled for a check flight to be qualified as a Cabin Crew Evaluator. I thought that this flight’s gonna be so special as this is a big step on my flying career. 

Everything went smoothly until after take off, I heard an infant’s cry, a cry that will make you want to do anything to help. I approached the mother and asked if everything’s o
kay, I tried to tell her to feed her hungry child. Teary-eyed, she told me that she ran out of formula milk. Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant.

I felt a pinch in my heart. There’s no formula milk onboard. I thought to myself, there’s only one thing I could offer and that’s my own milk. And so I offered.

Ms. Sheryl Villaflor, Line Administator on my flight, immediately assisted the mother to the galley where I breastfed the baby. The baby started rooting, she was so hungry.

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.

I was right, the flight’s gonna be special, so special not only because I got qualified as an Evaluator but I got to help.

I breastfed a stranger’s baby inflight.

Thank you, Lord for the gift of mother’s milk.
