Kansas man soothes babies on flight

LENEXA, Kan. (KWCH) A man from Lenexa is getting a lot of praise for his baby soothing abilities.

Jessica Rudeen posted the viral photos of her children with the Kansas native on Saturday. It's been shared more than 4,000 times on Facebook.

Rudeen says she boarded a plane with her infant and toddler when both of the children quickly started getting upset.

That's when Todd comforted the baby while the mom buckled her toddler. Then the post explains that Todd played with the toddler, keeping her distracted the entire flight.

"During the flight, he colored and watched a movie with Caroline, he engaged in conversation and showed her all the things outside. By the end of the flight, he was Caroline’s best friend. I’m not sure if he caught the kiss she landed on his shoulder while they were looking out the window," says Rudeen.

The mom says the man also had the same connecting flight and even changed his original seat to sit next to the mom again to continue helping her with the two children.

"I am blown away by God’s hand in this because we could have been placed next to anyone, but we were seated next to one of the nicest man I have ever met in my life."
