Passengers Stunned At Flight Attendant’s Response To Frazzled Mom And Her Crying Baby

After helping a mother with her whining baby, a Southwest flight attendant’s kind act went viral.

As any parent who braves the skies with their children can attest, flying with babies is no fun. Not only do you need to keep your child entertained and calm during takeoff and landing, but you also need to keep them occupied and calm so as not to disturb other passengers.

Perhaps that’s why so many people were moved by the story of a flight attendant who went out of her way to help a mother in need during a trip.

Carrie Jaboor flew Southwest Airlines from Orlando to Pittsburgh in 2017. Her seat was directly behind a woman and her two young children, the youngest of whom she believed was around a year old. The only thing the mother undoubtedly feared happened about halfway through the flight, and her baby became heartbroken.

The baby had a “really loud wail that wouldn’t stop,” according to a post Jaboor later shared with Love What Matters. The mother’s stress levels were high when a Southwest employee approached her and asked her to accompany him to the back of the plane.

“The mother looked so distressed,” Jaboor later told Scary Mommy, “and it just broke my heart for her because nothing was helping the young girl.”

“I could tell the mother (and myself) thought she was in for trouble when the flight attendant asked her to step back.” CARRIE JABOOR

Returning her gaze to see what was going on, Jaboor was surprised to find the flight attendant blowing bubbles at the baby, reassuring both her and the frightened mother. “He also comforted and gave tissues to the mother who was crying.” In her article, Jaboor said, “There are some really lovely people in this world.”

“He blew bubbles and I couldn’t believe it. It was so enjoyable to see a flight attendant handle a scenario that might have been upsetting/disturbing to some people with love. – CARRIE JABOOR

The original tweet quickly went viral, with other flight attendants and customers vowing to bring their own small (TSA-approved) bubble bags on flights to help picky teens.

People were so impressed with Jaboor’s story about the friendly flight attendant that they started sharing their own experiences with staff who have done everything on other flights. A passenger recalled a Southwest plane singing “Happy Birthday” to a young child on board by turning on the lights like candles. Another woman described being on a plane with her crying one-year-old and a companion taking the baby and pacing her on the plane until she calmed down.

“There are some very wonderful people in this world.” JABOOR

“In November I flew Southwest for the first time to see my husband’s family,” Taylor Denise Reed wrote in the comments. “I was very concerned because our daughter is two,” she added, “and you just don’t want to be the parent with the crying kid while everyone is looking at you and judging you quietly.”

“Fortunately she didn’t cry, but she became restless because she had to sit.” One of the male flight attendants came over and played and talked to her for 45 minutes. I cannot express how grateful I was.”

“This is truly heart breaking as a 23 year old SWA flight attendant,” wrote Jodi Bloodgood. “We work hard to keep the Southwest culture alive and thriving that so many of us have come to know and love.”

You don’t have to be a parent to understand that even the small gesture can make a big difference on a weary Parents’ Day, which might explain why this story touched so many people. However, having a pack of crayons or bubbles in your suitcase and busting them out at a restaurant or on a plane the next time you see a parent suffering can make or break the day.

Even better, if you know a parent with kids who hasn’t had much break time lately, see if you can babysit or drop by with a hot meal or coffee. After all, it says it takes a village, and any parent affected by that narrative would agree. Passengers Stunned At Flight Attendant’s Response To Frazzled Mom And Her Crying Baby
