Merry Go Round is the things to do for toddlers. My son is on a merry go round at least once a week and does at least two rides at a time.  Merry Go Round (Carousel) has been around one hundred fifty years, and it gives dreamy moment to kids – and moments of rest to parents.

We were traveling to Japan when my baby was ten months old. ANA (All Nippon Airways) provides a bassinet to a baby who weighs less than 22lb (10kg). I was expecting a difficult travel since it’s ten hours’ flight, but luckily my baby slept and stayed in the bassinet all the way to Japan from US. Perhaps, it was cozy little bed in the airplane for him.

Bassinet was 33.5 x 17.7 x 13 inches (85 x 45 x 33 cm) and he fit in that!

Sweet Dream

Goodnight my love
Mother is here and nothing to worry about
Have a sweet dream

There are different opinions about co-sleeping with your baby. In western culture, most of babies are sleeping in their own crib, but this is different in Japanese culture, at least in my family culture. And co-sleeping with your baby is very common in Japan. I grew up co-sleeping with my parents, so naturally, I chose to do the same with my baby.

Also, I don’t spend enough time with my baby during the day because of my work. At night in the bed I finally have time to be next to my baby for the longest hours. For me, co-sleeping compensates the time I can’t spend time with my baby during the day. However, sweet dream sometimes come with a kick by a tiny foot – ouch.
