Transportation so it would be nice if you could control your kids.

Yes, I donít have any.
You should be able to prevent 2-4 year olds from running up and the aisle. But you can't prevent infants from crying if they're inclined to.

I have 2 and they weren’t too bad flying at 8 months. The first one was great. I think people realize babies will cry, ear pressure changes, etc.

It’s what the parents don’t do that gets other passengers ticked off. I’ve been on flights where the kid is wailin and neither parent is doing anything. At least try! Tryi to soothe the baby, feed, hold them, etc. But for parents who just sit there and let the kid cry without attempting anything, booo.

Nursing works well. Feed them during the decent.

Yes, all parents know to give them a bottle or boob on the way down. But sometimes they cry just because.

Not all parents know about the antihistamine effects though (as mentioned above).

My kids are now late teens, but I clearly remember the joys of infant and toddler travel.
