In this instance, and when it would apply in any other potentially disruptive situation, I think it is on the flight attendants and pilots to determine if the distraction is tolerable or if it is excessive. If it's true that the baby screaming was preventing to the passengers from hearing the preflight instructions, then I think their actions are justified and I'm disappointed that these people were punished for making a decision based on their experience and professional judgment. It's getting to the point where people are going to begin hesitating to make important decisions for fear of losing their jobs or being reprimanded.
ORS, you have an eagle eye, use it.
