I'm sorry to hear you haven't had a good flying nanny experience. Wish I had tried it personally with any of my five squiggling grandchildren, but I will report to the Etihad people your thoughts and I'm sure they will have Etihad working to better the flying nanny experience.
My experience with Etihad was nothing but good. Their Flying Nanny program is fairly new, but they have a flying nanny on every single plane; I don't know why you didn't, and the one that I met was wonderful with children, and very helpful.
