I don't know if you've ever flown with a toddler, but I can say from experience, no matter how well you've prepared, you really don't know what's going to happen.
When Becca was one and a half, we flew to the Bahamas with the radio station. Fun, right? I brought her car seat, snacks, toys, everything I could think of, to make sure everyone on the flight had a good experience.
Right before we took off, she started kicking. And the man in the seat in front of us turned around and asked "Is she going to be alright?" You can't hear the tone just by reading this, but let's say, it was not an offer of help.
This poor Mom was in a much tougher situation, traveling with an infant and a toddler... and they both "went off" at the same time.
And that's when a passenger stepped in to help.
