Flight attendant Patrisha Organo said she breastfed a wailing infant after the mother ran out of formula.

When the little one's teary-eyed mother disclosed her formula predicament, Organo came up with a quick solution. "Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant".

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

"I thought to myself, there's only one thing I could offer and that's breastfeeding the baby myself".

Organo received massive support for her demonstration in the wake of sharing her story on Facebook and in excess of 22,000 individuals shared her post.

"Thank you, Lord for the gift of mother's milk", Organo added.

"More than inspired, I have a mother's heart that knows what the baby needs", she gushed. I was right, the flight's gonna be special, so special not only because I got qualified as an Evaluator but I got to help. Facebook users also responded with comments praising the flight attendant's act, with one person even calling her a "hero".

"Ms. Sheryl Villaflor, Line Administator on my flight, immediately assisted the mother to the galley where I breastfed the baby". But suddenly after takeoff, she heard a baby start to cry.

There you are, enclosed in this metal tube flying through the air with a few hundred exhausted people trying to fall asleep to The Illusionist, and your baby is screaming louder than the airplane engine itself. "In a woman's eyes I saw gratitude", - said the girl.

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