Flight Attendant Goes Viral After Calming Down a Baby on His First Flight


Exploring the world with your family is an exciting adventure, but flying is a different story. One mom learned that the hard way after taking her baby son on his first flight, but a kind-hearted flight attendant came to the rescue and gave him a plane tour to calm him down.

The incident was captured by Jessica Nelson onboard a Southwest Airlines flight. She was flying with her baby boy Oakland, who’s never been on the plane before and struggled to keep his voice down.

If you’ve ever been on a plane with your kids, you know how tough it can be to keep them calm – but Nelson’s had a helping hand. An “angel” flight attendant walked the baby up and down the aisle while gently holding him in her arms and rubbing his back while giving him an airplane tour.

Oakland’s mom was so grateful that she couldn’t help but share the video with the world and captioned it with the words, “To the flight attendant who gave my screaming baby a plane tour, thank you,” followed by the praying hands emoji.

Nelson’s video quickly generated millions of views, and she received countless positive comments from fellow moms, saying how comforting it feels to have someone to help you out when you’re flying with kids.
