Caring for a fussy infant can be challenging any time it happens, but when traveling alone with that crying baby, it’s a next-level nightmare. So when a fellow traveler at McCarran International Airport in Nevada spotted a gate agent holding an upset infant for an exhausted mom, they snapped a photo and shared the touching moment on Reddit.
The photo has gone viral because it shows how a simple act of kindness can be so powerful. The male gate agent is seen walking and holding the baby up on his chest to soothe him. Sometimes the little things in life have the biggest impact.
