The changes in pressure impact the sinus cavities/ ear & nasal cavity in infants (and younger children in general) far more than adults. Sucking on a bottle or other item will help them equalize the pressure in their canals.
Those times we have trouble are just as bothersome to us by the way. We hate that we are inconveniencing everyone else. It's only happened to me once in all my flights and that was because we had adjusted our youngest son's schedule so that he would intentionally sleep on the flight. But then we were delayed by almost 2 hours throwing that all out of whack. We felt pretty bad about the couple folks near us, but most were understanding, except one grumpy guy haha.
Anyways, I'm rambling. Great trip report as usual! I hope the parents got a double too, they probably needed it haha.
Edit: by the way, if you have kids and do a lot of flying, do your kids a favor and get ear tubes put in. A lot of kids get them these days anyways. As I noted in another thread, mine both have them. They are a treat on flights now.

Though many landing videos uploaded on YouTube mean they have to be muted due to screaming babies . I think an adult kicking the seat from behind is more annoying.

The ME3 and TK are very family friendly airlines so be sure to have tons of screaming kids at the time of landing.

In fact, I have a snack from delta still sitting in my vehicle from my last flight with them

Blocks out even the loudest screaming baby. Worth. Every. Penny.

On both flight's screaming baby's/toddlers as CTA is a vacation destination for European families.
However both flights were relaxed as my gf gave me some NC Headphones as christmas present.
I thanked her once again after we disembarked from the a/c.

For almost 6 hours ( for a 12 hours flight ) we had the pleasant sound of a toddler ( around 2-3 y.o. ) making a bad fake of a crying, just to get more attention from the parents every few minutes. The poor mother did all in her hands to calm down the kid but nothing was effective for more than 5 or 6 minutes. I was separated by a few rows and by two aisles but still hear all the show...I can only imagine how good would be seating right next to that family. A good pair of noise cancelling headphones looks very handy under this circumstances.
