(I posted this on the "Parenting’ forum, but wanted to post it here, too):
I was on the airplane today with my dh and my two young sons. We were on a flight home from a very pleasant trip to visit my in-laws. My younger son (6 months old) was fine on the plane, except for when we started to descend and the air pressure started to bother him. At that point, he started crying unconsolably until we landed about 10 minutes later. An older lady seated one row behind me pointed to the cup with a straw that I had in front of me and said, “Can’t you give him some juice? Or maybe some water?” and I replied, “no, I breastfeed. He doesn’t drink juice or water.” (btw, the cup with the straw was for my older son). Then she looked at me and said, “Well, can’t you give him a pacifier?” I replied, “no, I don’t own any pacifiers. I don’t give him one.” Then she rolled her eyes at me! :eek:
Thank God for the very nice man seated in the row in front of me who tried to comfort my little one and smiled at us the entire time he was crying. I really wasn’t prepared for that lady’s rude remarks (or attitude)!
I have no reason for writing this, other than to vent! And please pray for that lady’s rudeness, and that my heart may be calmed!
Have a blessed day!
