In her Facebook post, stewardess Patrisha Organo said she heard a faint cry of an infant as their Philippine Airlines (PAL) domestic flight took off early morning of November 6.

The flight attendant said she approached the mother holding the baby and asked her if everything was OK.

"I knew that I could offer my own milk, as I had been breastfeeding my young child myself, so offered up my services", Patrisha added.

Organo, who has been a flight attendant with Philippine Airlines for four years, Yahoo Lifestyle reported, felt the need to help the desperate mother.

During the trip, Organo said she heard a baby crying from the cabin.

After approaching the mum she found out that the baby was hungry - but the mother had run out of formula milk.

"The baby started rooting, she was so hungry", Organo wrote.

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

Patrisha, a self-proclaimed breastfeeding advocate, said she was happy to help because she knew the mother's predicament.

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.

"I saw the relief on [sic] her mother's eyes", she said.

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

"I could only imagine the chaos of those feelings, but as a mother myself I knew the stress she would've been going through", she explained.

"As soon as I could help the baby and the mother, I felt so happy - I cannot put into words how fulfilled I felt". "Thank you, Lord for the gift of mother's milk".

Perhaps understandably, Patrisha says that the mum was very grateful to her for feeding her little one and calming her down on the flight.

After the baby was satisfied, Organo escorted the mother and child back to their seat.

Organo said of her own breastfeeding journey, that she experienced days when she wanted to give up - but is glad that she continued, noting that she has a strong supply of milk, which helped her nurse the crying child on the plane.

Babies can be safely fed donated breast milk.

Not only was the flight meaningful to Organo because she was able to help a fellow mother in need, but she also aced a "check flight" evaluation for a new promotion.
