These parents handed out sweets to plane passengers to apologise for their crying babies

TRAVELLING WITH BABIES can be a somewhat of a nightmare.

The crying, the screaming, the glares from other passengers — it’s no picnic.

With that in mind, these parents decided to make provisions for the other passengers on the plane.

Christina Greese told Love What Matters:

As I was boarding a flight from EWR to Orlando today, I noticed most people pass up two rows of seats about half way down the plane. As I got closer, I found one row with a father and his 18-month old daughter and the other row with his wife and the daughter’s twin.
Because I don’t mind children (and knew I had my headphones for later on, just in case) I opted for the window seat next to the father and one of the twins. The rest of the passengers boarded and the middle seat in between us was eventually occupied. Before the flight took off, the parents passed around these goodie bags to the other passengers around them.
Such a thoughtful, simple act of kindness that I am so happy to have experienced.

Oh, and for the record? The babies were extremely well-behaved.

I never had to reach for the ear plugs once — the only time I opened the bag was to have a piece of chocolate. I hope this family has the most wonderful vacation!
