Being a breastfeeding mom is challenging enough -- but being a breastfeeding mom of triplets and having to travel is a level of difficulty we can't even comprehend. When one such breastfeeding mom of multiples, Jenna Evans, was attempting to navigate the logistics of doing that while flying, she was pleasantly surprised to be offered a free first-class seat to make the situation a little more manageable.

As she posted to the Delta Facebook page, while she wasn't traveling with the trio of babies, she was still needing to pump her breastmilk for future feedings (and to prevent painful engorgement that can lead to infection).

"As a breastfeeding mother to triplets, it's important that I not miss a breast-pumping session, especially when traveling," she wrote. "Yesterday, two flight attendants, Kaitlin K and Loretta, on my flight from Atlanta to Dallas-Love Field, allowed me to sit in an empty first class seat for more space and privacy while I pumped in flight. They offered me snacks and provided TONS of water during my pumping session."

She added that she is "incredibly grateful for the lengths these individuals took to make my role as momma much easier."

Here's hoping all airlines take note and follow suit!
