'She had been at the airport since the night before so had ran out of milk during the actual flight, which is what caused the baby to cry.

"Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant", Organo recalls of the scene in her Facebook post.

Organo said her line administrator, Sheryl Villaflor, then assisted the mother to the plane's gallery where the stewardess breastfed the baby.

Organo received an outpouring of support for her act after sharing her story on Facebook and more than 22,000 people shared her post.

"The mother of the child was so thankful for me helping, as she had been at the airport since 9.00pm the previous night".

Flight attendants get called on to do all sorts of things in the air. That's exactly what happened to one mom when she was aboard a flight recently.

"The helplessness you feel when you can not feed your hungry child is terrible, so I had to step in".

"The baby started rooting, she was so hungry", Organo wrote.

Basically, upon hearing the distressed baby, Organo went to check on the mother - and soon discovered the exhausted mother was out of formula. An advocate of breastfeeding, she offered her own milk to nourish the baby and lessen the worries of the infant's upset mother. Thankfully, a flight attendant named Patrisha Organo was able to help in a truly generous way.

"The baby was so hungry, the way she latched on". That empathy, she said, came from her own personal journey with breastfeeding, which was not always an easy one.

The helplessness you feel when you can not feed your hungry child is awful, so I had to step in.

It bears noting that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns using breast milk from another mother comes with risks and recommends consulting the child's health care provider beforehand.

I could only imagine the chaos of those feelings, but as a mother myself I knew the stress she would've been going through.

"But later on, just before I left, the mother sincerely thanked me for all of my help".

"The gesture was attractive of the flight attendant. but you do not know her health issues", read a comment on Organo's Facebook thread.
