When you’re traveling on a plane, you want to relax.
You want some peace and quiet.
Unfortunately, that’s not always possible.
Especially when there’s a baby on board.
Yes, babies are adorable – but not when they’re annoyed and tired.
Of course, I’m not saying that this is the babies’ fault. It’s completely natural to express their discomfort.
However, such noise is a lot to handle when you’re stuck on the plane.
And the situation must be worse for the parents, since they are probably also exhausted from having to take care of the baby.
Their worst nightmare may be when they’re on the plane with their baby, and their baby is the one crying hysterically.
It’s difficult to be ok when everyone stares at you.
When this happens, these parents probably just wish for something magical to happen to help soothe the baby.
Well, that’s exactly what happened to this pregnant woman who was traveling with her son.
Someone came up to her and offered to help.
One of the fellow passengers, Andrea Byrd, was so amazed by his action that she decided to post the whole story on her Facebook.
Obviously, it went viral.
Andrea Byrd explained that this happened while she was on the flight from Minneapolis, MN to Atlanta, GA.
According to Andrea, a stranger came up to the pregnant woman. Instead of complaining to her that her son was being loud, he just told her that he was a dad. Then, he said that he wanted to help her so she could rest.
Andrea also wrote that “this man walked the aisle most of the flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta, comforting this woman’s son as if he was his own. I was in tears.. because it showed me today that there are still GOOD people out there in a world full of turmoil.”
I can’t even imagine how grateful the mother must have been!
If you were on that same flight, would you have done the same thing?
