Flying with a baby is every passengers worst nightmare, whether you’re a parent or just a jet-lagged traveller. Hoping to have a positive experience on her journey to San Fransico, a mother made a compassionate gesture to reassure the other passengers that she is doing the best she can with her potentially noisy bundle of joy.
On a ten hour flight from Seoul, South Korea, to San Fransico, US, the mother handed out over 200 goodie bags filled with candy treats and useful ear plugs, just in case her four-month-old baby cried during the flight.
Passengers found the gesture touching and appreciated the effort she must have put in to making the gift bags.
On a Ten hour flight from Seoul Korea to San Francisco, a mother handed out more than 200 goodie bags filled with candy and ear plugs, in case her 4 month old child cried during the flight. “A very touching gesture by the mother but as you know when you have kids expect the unexpected,” Dave wrote.

Some users felt that parents shouldn’t have to be so accommodating on planes because being a baby and crying is natural and uncontrollable, while others felt that parents often don’t try hard enough to quieten their children because they understand their kid’s anxieties and just put up with the commotion, failing to realise that not everyone is as in love with their bundle of joy as they are.
