Maybe mum has pnd and isn't coping with the baby too well.Not having a go ... U mention u r pregnant ... Is this your first baby? Babies cry for a lot more reasons than being hungry. You say you did feel a bit sorry for her BUT ... Imagine how the mum felt after an hour on a plane with a distressed baby and dirty looks from other passengers ... Personally I would have gone over offered a friendly smile, adked if she the mum was ok and asked if I could help her at all.
    I know the baby was hungry because the mother and the three people travelling with her had a conversation about 'how we should have fed her before we got on the plane' just before we took off and again while we were on our way. It seemed to be the grandmother, mother and two sisters. But you are right - the baby could have had a whole raft of reasons to cry.The reason for my post was not to have a go, it was to show that people sometimes get annoyed with other peoples children/ parents.

    Wow - that was hurtful.

    I have removed my post and have slinked off back to the corner. I hope it feels good to make me cry.

    I dont think she *meant* to be hurtful. Have you flown on a plane with a baby of your own before? It's awful. They are over tired, over stimulated, ears popping, bored, too many people, enclosed space, refusing to feed etc then as they get bigger they get messier and start kicking seats and flinging their arms around.

    I recently flew 20 weeks pregnant and I had my 3 year old alone and the guy in front of me spun around to glare at me every time jasper moved or made a noise. Then just continued to turn and stare and shoot me glaring looks when I started breast feeding jasper just to keep him quiet. So still - jasper was totally still and silent he kept looking back. I should have offered him a feed too as clearly he needed to calm down!

    So.... yeah.... I'm guessing first baby? Or you've not flown with a baby? Or you're incredibly lucky? But flying with small children is awful before random people start to hate you. (I've even had a chick one seat over say to her friend sitting next to me - I had jasper on my lap - with no effort to whisper, say "children should have their own section on the plane")

    A crying baby on a plane that is being tended to by a desperate mum tryin to soothe them never bothers me, I feel empathy for that mumma
    What does get up nose is the mum that ignores the baby or the kids that run amok !

    Hmm.... umm.... yeah after at least a dozen flights with jasper, couple while pregnant, from 3 months to 3 years my only advice is....

    .... the plane will eventually land.



    (Oh I jest... really go in having really bad expectations and prepare for it to be worst 2 hours of your life and then hope they surprise you )

    The cafe near me rudely ejected a mum with a crying bub even though she attended to him straight away.

    The cafe has since closed down.

    Karma.

    This is really good advice. I flew by myself when DS was 15months and I thought it was going to be the longest, most horrible 2 hours of my life...... But boy did he surprise me!!!
