No-one likes sitting next to a crying baby on a flight – but as a parent there’s often little you can do about it.
Now one mum has warmed hearts across the globe by handing out 200 goodie bags to her fellow passengers – in case her baby Junwoo started crying.
The unnamed woman was taking her 10-month-old on a flight from Seoul, South Korea, to San Francisco in June last year.
Fellow passenger Dave Corona posted a snap of the sweets, note and earplugs the mum kindly gave him to Facebook – and admitted he didn’t hear a “peep” out of her tot.
The adorable note read: “Hello, I’m Junwoo and I’m 4 months old. Today I am going to the U.S. with my mum and grandmum to see my aunt.
“I’m a little bit nervous because it’s my first flight in my life, which means that I may cry or make too much noise.
“I will try to go quietly, though I can’t make any promises. Please excuse me.
“So my mum prepared a little goodie bag for you! It has some candies and earplugs.
“Please use it when it’s too noisy because of me. Enjoy your trip. Thank you.”
The post immediately went viral on Facebook, where people commented: “What a great idea.”
One mum wrote: “Just being able to put together 200 care packages with a small infant around is super impressive!”
But others said it was “sad” that the mum felt pushed to go to those lengths.
One said: “This is just sad. She doesn’t need to do such a thing. We people should understand her.”
While another mum added: “That was a nice gesture, but I think people need to be more understanding on flights and not make parents and their children feel so unwelcome on flights.
“We were all babies at one point in life.”
