Babies On a Plane: “Warning! We Might Cry!”
When you get on a plane and realize there’s a baby or toddler in close proximity, you probably wish you had taken a different flight – or had sprung for those expensive noise cancelling headphones.
Well, some parents had obviously been there before, because on a recent flight a mom and dad traveling with their twin babies had the great idea to bribe the other passengers with goody bags filled with candy.
The goody bags came with a note that said, “We’re twin baby boys on our first flight and we’re only 14 weeks old! We’ll try to be on our best behavior, but we’d like to apologize in advance just in case we lose our cool, get scared or our ears hurt. Our mom and dad (AKA our portable milk machine and our diaper changer) have ear plugs available if you need them. We are all sitting in 20E and 20F if you want to come by to get a pair.”
According to passenger reports, the flight went well – and the babies were “better than expected.”
