Hero Officer Steps in to Breastfeed Malnourished Baby in Police Custody

We think police personals are always hard-minded and act roughly when they carry out their duties. But it is not like that. Although they carry out duties they are also human. They act humanely when it is needed the most. There is a story which comes from Argentina confirming this and that most police officers act kindly according to the situation they face.


Celeste Jaqueline Ayala is a police officer from Berisso, Argentina who showed how great things you can do although you wear a police uniform. She opened doors of her heart and did not hesitate to breastfeed a malnourished baby. The baby was taken into the hospital for treatment for his mother’s sickness but the hospital staff was too busy, was unable to look into the child. Ayala was unable to keep her thoughts and see the crying baby. She rushed to the baby to him to her arms and began breastfeeding him. Ayala is so famous online because of this heroic act.

Fox News reported that Ayala was working as a guard in the at Sor Maria Ludovica children’s hospital. The baby’s mother, of six, was taken into the hospital because of a sickness. Baby’s mother was financially down to look after her children. The infant was referred to as “smelly and dirty”. But this did not halt her. She asked the baby from the hospital staff when she felt that the baby was hungry. Ayala gently holds him and began breastfeeding him. The infant felt comfortable of her touch and slept on her arms while drinking milk.

Ayla told to the local media site, Cronica that “I noticed that he was hungry, as he was putting his hand into his mouth, so I asked to hug him and breastfeed him. It was a sad moment, it broke my soul seeing him like this. Society should be sensitive to the issues affecting children. It cannot keep happening.”
