I always recommend doing a Bill Cosby and very loudly wake the baby up as you get off the plane :-)

About the only thing I do if a kid won't quiet down is ask the parent(s) if they've done anything to help relieve the pressure in the baby's ears. That's the main culprit usually, aside from having a kid who's just a fussy sleeper. For 10 hours though, almost all babies are doing to sleep some. A lot of flyers with kids have no idea about the need to equalize pressure in the ear, to stay hydrated, etc.

I have and will complain, to the FAs, f the parent(s) are playing a video or game or something for the kid with the audio up. I'll tolerate a mouth breather watching a vid while eating at Taco Bell, but on a plane, I have zero intention of listening to anyone elses audio. That's why headphones were invented and they work equally well with children as with adults.
