Celeste Ayala, the Argentine police officer who breastfed a malnourished baby last week, just got offered a promotion.

The moment the officer discovered the crying infant who had been separated from her parents at Sor María Ludovica children's hospital, she knew what she had to do to calm the distressed baby.

As a mother of a 16-month-old daughter, Ayala's maternal instincts kicked in and she wanted to hold and breastfeed the neglected child. The hospital offered their consent.


Her colleague, Marcos Heredia photographed the "great gesture of love" and posted the image of the officer feeding the baby on Facebook where it was shared over 113 thousand times.


After the post went viral, Ayala was promoted from officer to sergeant. Cristian Ritondo, the security minister of Buenos Aires province, tweeted his praise.

"We wanted to thank [her] in person for that gesture of spontaneous love that managed to calm the baby's cry."

Ritondo later added that Ayala is a prime example of "the police we're proud of, the police we want."



The officer told local news media about her heroic effort.

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."


According to the Independent, the child and his siblings had been separated from their parents, who were reportedly in poor health and not able to properly care for their children.


People can't stop talking about Ayala's beautiful act of kindness.









In his Facebook post, Heredia praised his friend for tending to the baby hospital staff dismissed as "dirty."

"I want to make public this great gesture of love you made today for this little baby who you did not know, but for who you did not hesitate to act like a mother."
"You did not care if he was dirty or smelly, which is what the hospital staff called him. Good job mate."

The fire department where Ayala also volunteers issued this statement:

"We want to congratulate the voluntary firefighting cadet Celeste Ayala who yesterday in her job as police officer whilst she was on guard duty at the Hospital, breastfed a young child who arrived crying.
Actions like these fill us with pride and obligate us to redouble the effort, the work and the solidarity with our community."

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
