Traveling with a baby on a plane can be an overwhelming experience. This was particularly true for a member of our team traveling from New York to Fort Lauderdale aboard JetBlue flight 1171. As most of us know, the baby is not crying to make your life harder — the baby is crying because he or she needs or wants something, and this happens to be the communication tool at their disposal. However, several passengers did not understand this and began to complain about the baby's crying. Some of them even criticized her for not controlling her son.

It helps to protect them against infections, and it’s been linked to a reduced risk of childhood obesity and leukemia, as well as cardiovascular disease in adulthood. But now, scientists have found that breast milk also increases the levels of certain chemicals in babies’ brains that are linked to its development.
