Soda, coffee, wine, breast milk hah?
A 24-year-old flight attendant and recent mother went above and beyond yesterday when she breastfed and stranger’s baby on a domestic Philippine Airlines flight.
The flight attendant shared the story on her Facebook wall:
“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, 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. 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.”
The flight attendant who has a 9-month-old baby asked the mother if she would be comfortable with the proposed solution. Upon receiving approval, the flight supervisor escorted the mom to a private part of the plane.
“The baby started rooting, she was so hungry. 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.”
This was also the flight attendant’s evaluation flight for a promotion…she got it!
