Here's an idea we absolutely love. Having flown with babies in tow, we know the whole experience can be stressful for parents, little ones, and the other passengers. Let's face it, babies don't have an OFF switch, and it can be a nightmare to be the parent of "that baby" on the plane.
Becca of Birthday Girl created a proactive solution to the problem of annoyed passengers with her adorable in flight favors. Anticipating that her baby girl might not do so well on a long flight to visit extended family, she bagged up candies with a sweet note apologizing for the potential ruckus and handed them out during the flight. Of course, with all that forethought and planning, baby Caitlin ended up doing just fine on the plane (isn't that always the way?) but the favors were still a hit, and the other passengers were in turn very helpful during the flight.
Becca was kind enough to offer the cute tags as free printables on her website, so if a long flight with a baby is in your future, be sure to check them out.
