The 24-year-old attendant says In a viral Facebook post she shared Wednesday, that she offered to help out the mother after she heard the hungry baby crying.
“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 okay,” she wrote. “I tried to tell her to feed her hungry child. Teary-eyed, she told me that she ran out of formula milk.”
She continued, “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.”
Her post, which includes a photo of herself holding the baby, has over 145,000 likes, over 6,000 comments and has been shared nearly 30,000 times.
Organo explained she and the mother then went to a private area of the plane to feed the baby
“The baby started rooting, she was so hungry,” she 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 told Yahoo that she has a 9-month-old daughter of her own, so she recognizes the difference between “a cry of hunger, a cry of sleepiness, or a cry of something else.”
