I was flying back home from AZ last night, and DS was not handling it well. He was screaming for almost 30 minutes straight and there really was nothing I could do to calm him after we took off. He did eventually fall asleep and had some less fussy moments, but it definitely wasn't the best flight we had.
At the end of the flight, the mother of two girls behind me said something profound that any mother should remember: "you may remember this flight for the rest if your life, but no one else here will"
what a wonderful thing to say. Probably the first unsolicited advice I will ever appreciate. And I wanted to pass it on to any mamas travelling with their LOs.
