I approached the mother and asked if everything’s okay,” she wrote. “I tried to tell her to feed her hungry child. Teary-eyed, she told me that she ran out of formula milk.”She continued, “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.”Her post, which includes a photo of herself holding the baby, has over 145,000 likes, over 6,000 comments and has been shared nearly 30,000 times.Organo explained she and the mother then went to a private area of the plane to feed the baby”The baby started rooting, she was so hungry,” she wrote. “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.Organo told Yahoo that she has a 9-month-old daughter of her own, so she recognizes the difference between “a cry of hunger, a cry of sleepiness, or a cry of something else.”USA TODAY reached out to the airline for commentMore: Smelly durian fruit causes flight delay in IndonesiaMore: Southwest Airlines passenger transported to hospital for being ‘disruptive’ during flightAutoplayShow ThumbnailsShow CaptionsLast SlideNext SlideRead or Share this story: https://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/flights/2018/11/09/flight-attendant-breastfeeds-passengers-baby-formula-runs-out-plane/1941190002/
