Flight Attendant Turns Nanny In-Flight
A flight attendant stepped in and breast-fed a crying baby when her mum ran out of formula milk in-flight. Twenty-four-year-old Patrisha Organo was on a Philippine Airlines domestic flight earlier this week when she spotted the baby crying hysterically.
Patrisha approached the mum to check everything was OK and was told that they had ran out of milk and the little one was getting a tad hungry. Patrisha, who has a nine-month-old little girl called Jade, said: “As soon as I heard the child’s cry, I knew there had to be something that I could do to help.
“When the mother told me that she had no formula milk for the child, and I knew that there was none on board, I knew I had to help.”
“I knew that I could offer my own milk, as I had been breastfeeding my young child myself, so offered up my services. The mother of the child was so thankful for me helping, as she had been at the airport since 9:00 pm the previous night. As soon as the baby started rooting and feeding from me, I saw the relief on the mother’s eyes and eventually her daughter fell asleep.”
Patrisha, from Manilla, says she is a breast-feeding advocate and was more than happy to help out as she understood how stressful the situation would be for the mum.
She explained: “I could only imagine the chaos of those feelings. But as a mother myself I knew the stress she would’ve been going through. The helplessness you feel when you cannot feed your hungry child is horrible, so I had to step in.”
Perhaps understandably, Patrisha says that the mum was very grateful to her for feeding her little one and calming her down on the flight. Presumably, the other passengers were delighted, too. Have you ever sat beside a crying baby on a plane?
Adding: “After I had breastfed the baby, I escorted her and her mother back to their seat. But later on, just before I left, the mother sincerely thanked me for all of my help.”
