Sharing a flight with a newborn can be stressful, no more so than for parents who struggle to keep their babies calm to avoid making enemies of their fellow passengers.

Luckily, most people are sympathetic to parents, but one couple decided to win over the travellers on their baby’s first flight by preparing them beforehand.

The clever mum and dad decided to write out an adorable note on behalf of their 1-year-old daughter Madeline, explaining why she might be making a lot of noise. They also provided their fellow passengers with ear plugs and treats to help make the experience a bit easier for everyone.

The note read:

“Hi Stranger!

“My name is Madeline. I will be 1 on December 17th and this is my first flight. I’ll try to be on my best behaviour, but I’d like to apologise in advance if I lose my cool, get scared or my ears hurt. My mom and dad packed you this goodies bag with a few treats. There are also earplugs in case my first public serenade isn’t as enjoyable to you as it is my mom and dad.

“Have a great flight!”
