I agree with Jessica's tips and have enjoyed reading all the comments. I wish I had
those tips when flying with my children, who are now grown and and now I'm still flying, but now it is to visit my Grandchildren.
As a Nurse I would like to add something that other flyers may not be aware of when they are
grunting and complaining about crying babies on board. First of all do you think the Mothers
who are traveling alone with a child enjoy their baby crying. Sometimes these flights the Mothers take are not pleasure trips to begin with. As for the babies and young children
crying, it is not because they are "little brats" that make them cry.
Babies and young children have much smaller tubes in there ears that casues them pain or discomfort when the pressure changes during flying.
My tip is to the other flyers on board that get angry when a child is crying
.Buy some ear plugs for yourself.
Believe me , it is no picnic for the Baby,or Mother that is causing such a ruckus!!!!!
