“What a wonderful lady!” one comment read. “This is so amazing!” another one said.
So who’s the stranger everyone’s calling the baby whisperer?
“I’m a doting baby lover. I really do love babies!” Nyfesha Miller told IE.
Miller said she was sympathetic to the young mom, travelling alone, and she felt she had to lend a hand. “She was like, ‘I’ve tried everything and she just won’t stop crying,’ and I was like, ‘Well, I can try, if you don’t mind,’” said Miller.
And her secret? Well, for fellow mothers out there, it’s not really much of a secret actually. She has lots of experience as she already has her own three children.
“I don’t have babies anymore and I kind of miss it. That was a treat for me to have her. It was a blessing for both of us,” she said.
Now the two strangers on a plane have become fast friends and they’re hoping their experience will motivate others to care instead of stare.
“She was definitely our guardian angel that day,” said Garvison
