My infant baby cried at top of his small but powerful lungs during the flight.

All my efforts to comfort him failed miserably.

I could hear exaggerated sighs of other passengers.

I was nervous and ready to burst into tears when my co-passenger who was sitting patiently all this while, said, “You are doing great.”

Join me in enjoying blogs from fellow A to Zers… Kaddu and Keith today! Do share some blog love with them too! :)

  1. How wonderful Shilpa! A little kind encouragement can mean the world in moments like that. Related to my karma post today. More kindness – oh yes please-)

  2. I was in same situation once. My 4 month old had decided to poop on the flight. The air hostesses were not ready to hold him, cant really blame them. And flight was about to land, seatbelt sign was on, my son was howling.. But they let me clean up my son though seatbelt sign was on. That was kindness.

  3. I had a similar incident, here I was the encourager 🙂 We forget what happened when we traveled with little kids. Nice take on the letter 🙂

  4. Mixed feelings! I do a lot of long haul flying and so often I’ve had sleepless journeys thanks to a crying child nearby. But wearing my other hat, I’ve taken children on board planes myself that have kept my fellow passengers awake! It’s easy to get irritated in such a confined place. Listen to me going on!! Thanks for the link Shilpa!

  5. I have traveled a lot in planes. I will tell one thing. When a baby cries in the plane, the other passengers won’t mind if the mother/father tries to calm the baby. I said “tries” to calm the baby. Some parents do not even make any attempt to calm the baby and they will be doing their own business like reading or listening to music. That is when the fellow passengers get irritated.

  6. Those few words of compassion and kindness would have sent me over the edge…I would be bawling like a fool all over that kind person! Lol! Loved this. Looks like you are killing the A-Z. Maybe I will have my act in gear next year for the A-Z and participate. This year, I am good to cheer you on from the wings. YAY Shilpa, you got this! ♥
