  1. I would not appreciate this note. Our daughter flew when she was a year old. Well-behaved and much loved. Never had a problem not passed out warnings.

    • It’s a little over the top but definitely preferable to couldn’t-care-less parents of ill-behaved children of which there are many on flights.

    It’s a bit of an over-share. All I need when I travel is to see parents in the act of parenting to know that they’re doing their best. Seeing parents ignore their seat-kicking, screaming brats while they talk on their cell phones and listen to loud music is what makes me crazy.

  3. . . . Not a good enough excuse.

      They don’t need an excuse, they are entitled to fly with new-born babies. nd new-born babies are entitled not to enjoy the flight.

    Very thoughtful, indeed Johnny. Not every child behaves the same on flights, some are very well behaved, some get really bad earaches. I had an ear infection once that started a few hours before my flight and if it’s the same pain and discomfort a baby experience at times during a flight, oh my, poor soul, because I was near tears. It was a thoughtful and kind gesture on the parents part. They didn’t have to but they chose to and I like it. So go kick rocks to those that are turning their noses up at these parents!!

    There’s all the difference in the world between a new-born baby whose reactions are unpredictable and uncontrollable, and a toddler who understands ‘be quiet’, ‘don’t kick’ , and ‘NO’ and is still out of control. These parents were thinking of others and that’s a rare thing these days. So hats off to them.

  6. Haters don’t have kids…I think it was very considerate!

  7. I try to remain cool about children traveling and appreciate it when parents at least try to keep their kids in check. So it the parents who tend to annoy me; the ones who do nothing and just as bad are the ones who try too hard. In the later catergory I felt I knew the child, David, so well by the fortunately short journey as they was a constant barrage of “David look at this” “how about we do this David” “David do you want to do….” and so it went on.
