Stjepanica arrives a mile for her mother who has left without formula for feeding her baby on a domestic flight in the Philippines.
Patriana Organo of the Philippine airline heard that the baby soon learned after the flight and "came to her mother and asked if she was all right," she wrote in a post on Facebook, which included a picture of her keeping the newborn.
"Teary-eied, she [the mother] she told me she was missing milk with formula, "Organo wrote on Tuesday.
Organo, who has a little daughter at home, said she felt "ears in her heart" because there was no formula on the plane.
"I thought, there is only one thing that I can offer and that's my milk, and so I offered," she wrote.
A colleague brought her mother to the kitchen "where I was breastfeeding a baby," wrote Organo, who is described as a lawyer for breastfeeding.
"I saw relief from the eyes of my mother, and I kept feeding the baby until it fell asleep. I followed her back to my seat and just before I left, my mother thanked me sincerely."
Organo said she knew the flight would be significant. Not only was she qualified for that flight as a cabin crew evaluator, but she also "helped" it.
"Thank you, Master for the gift of breast milk," she wrote.
Breastfeeding has many health benefits for babies. According to US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the risk of some infections, type 2 diabetes, and asthma decreases – to name a few.
But the US Food and Drug Administration recommends checking with a doctor before feeding mother's breast milk.
Feeding baby milk from a woman who is not a mother risks a child to discover infectious diseases "to chemical contaminants such as some illegal drugs, and to a limited number of prescription drugs that can be in human milk," according to the FDA website.
