When she heard that the mother had run out of formula milk, and the flight supply didn't have any either, she offered to breastfeed the baby herself.

"Thank you, Lord for the gift of mother's milk", she wrote.

"The gesture was handsome of the flight attendant. but you do not know her health issues", read a comment on Organo's Facebook thread. "There's no formula milk onboard". An advocate of breastfeeding, she offered her own milk to nourish the baby and lessen the worries of the infant's upset mother. It turns out that it would be a momentous flight for her in another way.

"I felt a pinch in my heart", she wrote.

"The baby was so hungry, the way she latched on".

"As soon as the baby started rooting and feeding from me, I saw the relief on the mother's eyes and eventually her daughter fell asleep".

Alongside her line administrator and the baby's mother, Patrisha breastfed the stranger's baby in the airplane's gallery.

On Instagram she urged people to "pray for Calabasas" . "Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up & evacuate our home. A member of the town, Brynn Parrott Chatfield, shared a video of the fire while driving in a vehicle on Facebook.

"I breastfed a stranger's baby inflight", she wrote.

As a mother herself, she could relate.

The flight attendant, who has a almost one-year-old daughter at home, heard an infant fussing after takeoff. Rather than leave her to handle the baby alone, Organo took her help a step further and brainstormed a solution.

From dealing with unruly passengers, to bringing food and drink, and sometimes even to landing the plane as the case in 2016 when a flight attendant on a Boeing 747 with 195 people on board helped land the plane when the co-pilot passed out somewhere over France.

The moving post has gone insane viral, wracking up 6.6K comments and 30,889 shares since it was shared on November 7. For this selfless, generous act, she absolutely deserves all the praise coming her way.

"I could only imagine the chaos of those feelings", she explained. "I escorted her back to her seat and just before I left, the mother sincerely thanked me".

According to the World Health Organization, mothers should evaluate their individual circumstances when deciding if their baby should consume donated breast milk or another nutrition source, like formula.
