Traveling with small children is difficult but traveling with a baby is even more challenging. This can be very inconvenient for both the parents and other passengers to, especially on planes. Babies can often get irritated during the flight which is why they might start crying. And if you wanted to have a peaceful flight that you could sleep through, imagine having a screaming baby nearby. However, this mother was very considerate of other passengers, and since she was flying with her baby she gave 200 passengers goodie bags as an apology if her baby starts crying.

Her baby was four months old at the time and she thought that the chances of the baby getting irritated were very high. Instead of being selfish and only thinking of herself, she thought about the other people that might feel annoyed because of her. This is why she came up with a plan to create goodie bags for all of the passengers.
The goodie bags contained earplugs, candies as well as a note explaining the reason why she gave them. The flight was from Seoul to San Francisco and it lasted 10 hours. She gave the bags at the middle of the journey.
This is what the note read:
“Hello, I’m Junwoo and I’m 4 months old. Today, I am going to the U.S. with my mom and grandmom to see my aunt. I’m a little bit nervous and scared because it’s my first flight in my life. That 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 mom prepared little goodie bags for you! It has some candies and earplugs. Please use it when it’s too noisy because of me. Enjoy your trip. Thank you.”
This story became viral and lots of internet user praised the mother for her thoughtfulness. This was a great gesture from her, and hopefully more people will follow her example of always being caring towards others, not just when you are traveling with a baby.
