Police officer goes viral for breastfeeding malnourished baby

An Argentinian police officer has gone viral after a video of her breastfeeding a neglected baby appeared on social media.
The baby was dangerously malnourished when it arrived at Sister Maria Ludovica Children’s Hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Luckily though, police officer Celeste Ayala was on guard duty that day.
The child, whose mother was struggling to look after him properly, was described by hospital staff as being “smelly and dirty”.
After the hospital staff become overwhelmed, Ayala stepped in and asked if she could hold and breastfeed him, which calmed him down immediately.
Speaking to local media about her actions, she said:
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.
