Family Can’t Quiet Crying Infant On Plane; 15 Minutes Later, Male Flight Attendant Successfully Stop Her From Crying

A crying child may be what no one wants while flying on an airplane. It’s unfortunate for Ashley Dowell and her husband when that was exactly what happened during their family trip in 2019. The couple hailed from Rockford, Illinois, were taking a family vacation to Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Aboard the ๐’๐จ๐ฎ๐ญ๐ก๐ฐ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ ๐€๐ข๐ซ๐ฅ๐ข๐ง๐ž๐ฌ ๐Ÿ๐ฅ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ with her were her husband, her 7-year-old, her 4-year-old and her 9-month-old baby girl. Alayna, her youngest, began crying instantly when the plane took off.

Flying for the first time may be scary for anyone, especially a tiny baby girl. There is a lot to take into consideration, like the extreme heights and the turbulence. The child may be startled due to constant movement as a plane gliding through the air isnโ€™t typically as calming as being rocked back and forth.

This familyโ€™s sweet baby was crying loudly while she was aboard her very first flight. Some of the other passengers seemed to be understanding of the situation, but some showed ๐š๐ง๐ง๐จ๐ฒ๐š๐ง๐œ๐ž. While traveling in the air, a male flight attendant came over to ๐š๐ฌ๐ฌ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ the family and grabbed their crying child. He needed to calm her down.

The Dowell family was off to a rocky start for their vacation and they just wanted to help wipe Alaynaโ€™s tears away and calm her down. Luckily for them, a flight attendant on board the airplane made the decision to come over and do what he could to ๐ฌ๐ญ๐จ๐ฉ ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ข๐ซ ๐œ๐ก๐ข๐ฅ๐ ๐Ÿ๐ซ๐จ๐ฆ ๐œ๐ซ๐ฒ๐ข๐ง๐  any longer.

During an interview with Good Morning America in May 2019, Dowell talked about her experience on the airplane with her consistently crying baby girl. โ€œWeโ€™re feeling like weโ€™re those people on the plane with the baby thatโ€™s crying and everyone wants to kick you off the plane,โ€ she told the news outlet.

The couple had tried everything they could to calm their little girl down, but nothing seemed to work. The crying had been going on for ๐ง๐ž๐š๐ซ๐ฅ๐ฒ ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ“ ๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐ฎ๐ญ๐ž๐ฌ before a flight attendant decided he was going to try to put an end to it.

Flight attendant ๐–๐ž๐ฌ๐ฅ๐ž๐ฒ ๐‡๐ฎ๐ง๐ญ, 32, had held Alayna when the family first got on the plane and needed to put their bags away in the overhead compartments. He came over to the family and offered to help and hold her once again, as her crying had still not let up. Dowell said: โ€œWe were in such a small, confined area, we were really ๐๐ž๐ฌ๐ฉ๐ž๐ซ๐š๐ญ๐ž,โ€
โ€œHe was so good with her, and so nurturing and caring, and pretty instantaneously, she calmed down.โ€

It took around 15 minutes for her little girl to fully calm down as Hunt held her and walked up and down the plane aisles. “He was ๐ซ๐ฎ๐›๐›๐ข๐ง๐  her back, walking up and down the aisle like it was just a day in the park,” Dowell said about the way Hunt calmed her crying child. “Once he calmed her down, he handed her back to us, and then we were able to get her back to sleep.”

Dowell posted about the ๐ค๐ข๐ง๐ ๐ ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ž on Facebook, where she was later able to reconnect with Hunt. She wrote about the ๐ค๐ข๐ง๐-๐ก๐ž๐š๐ซ๐ญ๐ž๐ ๐Ÿ๐ฅ๐ข๐ ๐ก๐ญ ๐š๐ญ๐ญ๐ž๐ง๐๐š๐ง๐ญ in a social media post on May 22, 2019. โ€œThere is so much negativity in this world, we need more stories like this shared! It would mean so much to me. There is still good in this world.โ€, she wrote.

Hunt talked about the reason why he helped out the family. Hunt said:”First of all, I love babies, and I want like a hundred of them,”. The flight had just taken off and the baby had not been able to stop crying. Hunt explained how he couldnโ€™t do anything for a while, as it was a ๐ฌ๐š๐Ÿ๐ž๐ญ๐ฒ ๐ฉ๐ซ๐ž๐œ๐š๐ฎ๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง to stay seated during the first few minutes of take-off. “He said: There was nothing I could do at the time because the seat belt sign was on, and so as soon as they turned off the seat belt sign, I went straight to her,”.

Reportedly, Hunt got creative and made a rattler out of pretzels with a lid on it to help distract her. The fight attendant talked about how he knew he needed to help out the infant’s family. Hunt said: “In a world full of hate, I like to be a shining light to someone who needs it,”
“I could tell in that particular moment her and her husband kind of needed a little light.”

The sweet flight attendant saw a family in need and decided to help out. He walked their baby up and down the aisles as he worked on ๐œ๐š๐ฅ๐ฆ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ก๐ž๐ซ ๐๐จ๐ฐ๐ง. Finally, the baby girl quieted down as she was handed back to her family โ€” with a fun vacation ahead of them.
