I remember once, my Dad gave us the 1000 yard stare, in the rear view mirror. Once. We shut the hell up, and cars behind us changed lanes.

I think this is why the riding in the back of the station wagon with the window down was so popular in the 1970s.  The carbon monoxide would help keep the kids calm.

Hebalo: DoctorCal: meanmutton: If your kid is well rested, well fed, and entertained -- they'll be fine.

Bullshiat. Stop spreading misinformation. The pressure changes will upset the best rested and fed baby. It's gonna scream and cry for 30% of the flight.

Don't. Fly. With. Babies. Dammit.

This must be the semi-monthly thread where 20 somethings with no clue, and 30 somethings who think they're the smartest people in the room judge people with real lives.


I know the expectation is just that a thread like this is going to have people spewing child hate, to the extent that Poe's law comes into play, but that isn't what this is.

In the last 18 months, I've flown around 40 flight "segments", and a majority of them have had at least one, sometimes multiple, crying infants on them. During one stretch, it felt like a game, like they were chasing me - being seated nearer and nearer to me. I had one *directly behind* me, actually kicking my seat during a screaming fit, and I completely ignored it. (At the end of the flight, the embarrassed mother apologized, and I reassured her that I had been fairly oblivious to whatever she was so sorry for.)

The kicker was when I was boarding a return trans-Atlantic flight.

I had arranged six weeks prior to the flight to be seated with access to an electrical outlet for a medical device. AS I BOARDED THE AIRCRAFT I was informed that I had been reassigned "to keep a family together". As I walked past my former seat, I saw that there was an infant in it. *sigh* They won the game, finally making a direct hit - actually taking my seat.

Since then, the screaming babies have continued.

Bane of Broone: TommyDeuce: What about kids ON the car?

/Got a roof rack I hardly ever use

Should have voted for Romney.


Nah, my dog curls up in a seat and goes to sleep.  The kids find something trivial to argue about and then fight like mad for a couple of hours about it.

This.  My two fit in the trunk perfectly and with it being so dark they almost always fall asleep very quickly.  That helps keep the thumping from disturbing the neighbors.
