Flying with a baby is tough on just about everyone.

The frightened infant will likely cry, their parents will inevitably fret and fellow passengers will curse having forgotten their ear plugs.

A mother with her two young girls was flying with America’s Southwest Airlines recently when she began living out the nightmare before a kind flight attendant saved the day.

“This Southwest employee asked the mother to come to the back of the plane with him.

One came from a Lyze Lynch, a fellow flight attendant, who praised the man wholeheartedly.

"Our job is hard, we work long hours, are constantly tired, and are far away from home. But I think I can speak for my sky brothers and sisters when I say that we genuinely try to make your travels better," she wrote.

"Most of the times as a parent we try all the tricks in the bag, but nothing works. Sometimes we want to throw our hands in the air and cry too," Judy Wanjiku Jørgensen wrote.

"So, the next time you witness a toddler, an infant or baby having an epic meltdown, please don't roll your eyes and give the parent an attitude.

"Be kind to them instead. Offer your kind silence or a helping hand."
