Listen to this article

Travelling with infants on flights, trains or buses often disturbs the peace of co-passengers. While some do love kids and understand the pain of new mothers, others complain.

Some stories are different, as people make them different with their humble gestures. A similar case took place recently when a young woman distributed a bag -- containing candy, chewing gum and earplugs -- to over 200 passengers on a 10-hour flight en route to San Francisco from Seoul. The young mother took this initiative as a kind of advance apology and asked her co-passengers to use them in the event that her 4-month-old baby screamed during the flight.

Apart from this, the bag contained a note too. In it it was written, "Hello, I am Jan Woo. I am 4 months old and today I'm travelling to America with my mom and grandmother for my aunt's outfit. I'm a little nervous and scared. This is my first flight in my life. It's normal for me to cry or cause some disturbance. I'll try to stay calm, but I can't promise you. Please use it if my voice gets too loud.. Enjoy your trip. Thank you."
