Unfortunately, SW along with many other uninformed people, are sadly misguided in their mask regulations. The science is clear, masks on children are not a medically safe nor sound practice. It is certainly not making it safer to fly. Masks are actually harmful for adults but I doubt the truth will prevail on that one. When in a plane, with recirculated air, there is always the possibility of being exposed to a number of viruses, etc. The reported behavior of SW towards families with small children is appalling. From what I have read of the incidents, the families were attempting to comply. All the fearful people commenting about the rules being the rules, and how safe they feel with small children wearing masks perhaps do not understand children, viruses much less the science? I do not travel with small children, I used to travel a lot but the mask mandates are so ridiculous that I refuse to travel. I have an excellent article by a retired brain surgeon on the dangers of wearing masks and how ineffective they truly are if anyone is interested in the actual science. If you choose to believe a lie, your mask should adequately protect you from a two year old drinking from a sippy cup and having a snack.
