We all know how difficult it is to travel to children, especially babies.

One mother was on a scheduled flight last week, travelling alone with her young twins.

When she sat down on the plane, a flight attendant immediately told her she couldn't hold both babies and would have to leave the flight.

The story was shared last week by Mackenzie Murphy in a post published on the Love What Matters Facebook page.

She explains that 'it was a very packed flight so they started taking carry on luggage to store under the plane.

'A gate worker took this woman's car seat, meaning she would now have to hold both babies since they weren't old enough to sit up on their own in a seat'.

'A mother sitting in front of me, with permission from the other mother, volunteered to hold one of her babies for the entire flight', she said.

 

'Without a complaint this woman fed the other woman's baby and burped him. Her own daughter started crying. This mom, so calmly, went on to explain to her young daughter that 'our job is to help other people. This mom is all by herself with no help, and really needs another mom to help.

 

Mackenzie says that the 'moral of the story is when you see people needing help, do the right thing and help them'.
