Flight attendant breastfeeds passenger's crying baby on flight - NY Daily News

This flight attendant served up a lot more than peanuts and sodas on one recent trip.
Philippine Airlines crew member Patrisha Organo breastfed a crying baby on a flight Tuesday when the infant’s upset mom revealed she was out of formula.

The flight attendant broke down the adventure in a Wednesday Facebook post.


“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,” Organo wrote. “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," she added. “There’s no formula milk on board. I thought to myself, there’s only one thing I could offer and that’s my own milk. And so I offered.”

Another Philippine Airlines staffer helped the mom to the plane’s galley where Organo breastfed the infant.
“The baby started rooting, she was so hungry,” the flight attendant 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’s Facebook post was accompanied by a shot of her breastfeeding the baby. The child’s face was blocked out with a baby emoticon, which Organo wrote she added to protect the infant’s family’s privacy.

Wet nursing is pretty common in the Philippines and nothing about this would appear especially strange for a Filipino.

Among poorer women in the Philippines, nursing the children of friends and relatives is a common birth control practice.

which tells you they wanted attention from it. :)
Maybe, or maybe not. There's a new generation that has come to believe that pictures are an essential part of all life experiences. And that every part their life has meaning for all the rest of us, if only we'd be a spectator in theirs.

And not just selfies during sex (which seems like the ultimate narsiscistic - folks, sex is a better participatory sport!)

Jesus, the generation before us started the "oh God lemme get a picture of this moment". It's a literary trope. This upcomming generation is literally the one that wanted pictures to be effemeral with snapchat and other programs and the olds say "why the hell would you want the picture to go away?"

What this upcoming generation has no appreciation of nor desire for is privacy.

Taking pictures is nothing new. People have been doing it for a long time. From my perspective, taking selfies all day long is a sign of generation ME. Having said that, if thats the way society is headed then so be it. I'm glad I grew up in a generation that wasn't so self absorbed. I hope you don't take offense to this, I don't mean any of this towards you specifically, just speaking generally. Sometimes the internet can make things seem like an attack when it isn't.

lol, I was thinking the same thing the other day about the privacy thing. I don't think they are even aware of the concept of privacy.

Part of being stuck between generations (and now included in mellinials) is i get both sides on many issues, but i swear, the complete disolving of privacy is insane to me. The only thing i can say for sure is cameras were a thing long before this or the next generation. Same day photo wasnt on this gen. Home photo printing wasnt on us. Designated professional camera people at preK on up wasnt me and my people. Taking a effing photo for everything in pur lives to mark something (still dont know what) wasnt us. My generation was the first one saying, no i dont want a photo in my hand, i dont want a photo album, i don't effing care about any of it, in fact, burn it from memory as soon as i show a friend. Its gone! My mom? Oh remember that funny thing on the menu, oh here lemme find it.

For any reference to photoing urself taking sex please see previous generations, examples include Rob Lowe, paris hilton (40), pam Anderson and tommy lee, colin whatever. In fact the only one upset by it was hunger games girl and the mickey mouse sex kitten one... Mellinials who gave up privacy.

I'll own the loss of privacy.

Usually I go the other way when I hear something like that. In all seriousness, kinda nice? for her to do that. Shes good people.
Yeah, i mean the other alternative is check with statMD and looking at the time frame just divert. Im surprised another couple didnt have formula onboard, although if it was a plane full of Americans it'd make sense, since no one has kids anymore.

Getting a kid to go back and forth from formula to beastmilk, holy crap good luck. Glad the baby took it.

Glad it all worked out but crazy dad me would be like, "have customs meet me with a damn can of formula at the first turnoff or I'm landing in the first cvs parking lot I see."

Little different social conventions in that part of the world. Even here in ‘Mercia I’m pretty sure there’s been a time or two where my wife or her friends have been watching each other’s babies and have at least thought about trying to nurse someone else’s fussy little one.
