    I thought this was a creative way of handling the "babies on board" situation (bit of an overkill, though - now I expect all parents to hand me care packages when they come on board :) ).

    I'll never complain about parents trying to parent.

    My complaints are saved for the all too often mom and dad put on headphones/take ambien/etc adn leave the children to everyone else to deal with.

    Small, unimportant point, - they probably weren't sitting in 20e and f since that is likely in one section and there are only 3 masks so 2 babies can't be in the same row;)

    I thought the masks had a redundancy factor. For three seats there would be four masks?

    Correct. But in some cases (depending on airplane type and layout) an airplane might only have a extra mask on one side or in certain rows.

    But yes, both 20E and 20F can have lap kids as long as that row has enough extra masks to accommodate everyone.

    Whoops I meant 4 masks for 3 seats (as in def) and if the third seat was occupied they would need 5 (if both are lap babies ), but as post below indicates if they are not in the same "row" it wouldn't be a problem.
