Airborne doctors took another mile to a mother who had exhausted the formula to buy her baby on a domestic flight in the Philippines.
Philippine Airlines flight sister Patrisha Organo heard a baby crying shortly after take off and "turned to her mother and asked if everything was fine," she wrote on a Facebook post that included her child's image.
"Teary-eyes, she [the mother] she told me she ran out of milk, "Organo wrote on Tuesday's flight.
Organo, who has a little daughter at home, said she felt it was "a pinch in my heart" because there was no formula on the plane.
"I thought there was only one thing I could offer, and that's my own milk, so I offered," she wrote.
The colleague brought his mother to the kitchen "where I nursed a baby," wrote Organo, who describes himself as a baby.
"I saw the relief of my mother's eyes, and continued feeding the baby when she fell asleep, and I accompanied her back to my place, and just before I left, my mother had sincerely thanked me."
Organo said they knew the flight would be significant. Not only did she qualify for this flight for the role of crew cabin crew but also "helped".
"Thank you, Lord for the gift of breast milk," she wrote.
Breastfeeding has many health benefits for infants. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it reduces the risk of some infections, Type 2 diabetes and asthma – to name a few.
The US Food and Drug Administration recommends a medical check before breast feeding from another mother.
Feeding a child's milk from a non-mother woman exposes infectious diseases to a child, "chemical contaminants such as certain illicit drugs, and a limited number of prescription drugs that may be in human milk," on the FDA website.
