You read that right. The product that CHANGED my life as a mother, specifically a first-timer. Completely. That product is… Drum Roll Please… the DockATot®. Parent and baby’s favorite and most convenient baby necessity! In this post, I am going to give you ALL of the details regarding the DockATot® and why you NEED to add this to your baby registry or consider gifting to an expecting mother! I will also have several links throughout this post where you can easily visit the DockATot® website to peek at and purchase any items that speak to you! Please keep in mind that I am acting as an affiliate for this brand. However, I only work with brands whom I lovelovelove and completely support the products that I use with my family in my own home!
Let’s start with the basics.
The DockATot® looks like and is essentially, a baby lounger. Comprised of a soft pad on the bottom and a soft, yet sturdy, pillow barrier around the top edge, the DockATot® creates a safe and nurturing space for children ages 0-36. According to the DockATot® website, “All materials used to make both the Grand and Deluxe docks are breathable and washable and therefore hygienic. DockATot® offers a perfect micro-climate with excellent air-permeability. All filling materials are sourced from world-leading suppliers of materials with hygienic and non-toxic properties. All fiber compositions are designed to create an optimal micro-climate.” There are two designs, the DockATot® Deluxe for babies 0-8 months and the DockATot® Grand for age 9 months to 36 months. The bottom pad and pillow barrier are separate pieces that both fit into one DockATot® cover. I simply toss the cover in delicate machine wash when needed. Check out the unique design and build for yourself here.
We use our DockATot® EVERYWHERE. Due to its lightly-weighted design, we can simply pick up our son in the DockATot® and tote him around everywhere we go in our home. Whether we’re in the kitchen making a meal or sitting on the couch binge-watching Netflix, Luke is always safe, comfortable and where we can see him! Because the DockATot® is so light-weight, we are practically only carrying Luke’s weight with it, which we would do anyway without the DockATot® , so we might as well make him comfortable and make it easier for us to keep him soothed. Often times, I will pick him up while he is napping to go to the shower and he will stay asleep the entire time for mom’s shower! Wahooo! Big win for mama over here. The design mimics a mothers womb with the barriers all around, thus, Luke will keep sleeping peacefully even if being moved from room to room. Take a look at how easy the DockATot® is to transfer all around your house here.
As if I wasn’t already in love with the built and the functionality of the DockATot® we can go ahead and tick off the box of it appearing polished and having a high-class look. We are currently loving the Toile de Jouy Dusty Blue cover and have our eye on the Natural Buffalo cover. There are SO many gorgeous covers to choose from that you will not be disappointed whatsoever. Honestly, I would be happy with them all, they are that sleek and stylish. This really stood out to to me as I was preparing my favorite products for baby thus far and really thought about how much I use the DockATot® in our home. Plus, we have easily toted it on road trips to Branson, Missouri and to Dallas, Texas. We can readily transfer it to my in-laws house when we have dinner with them, too. Out of all of the products that I have received and purchased for my baby, besides bottles and pacifiers, the DockATot® is the number one used item in our household. In fact, Babylist now has the DockATot® as the most registered item for baby! Shop the Deluxe+ and Grande models and beautiful cover choices here.
All of this goes to say, I highly recommend every mama out there to have a
DockATot® in their home. From my personal experience, Luke has always instantly fallen asleep and been comfortable each time he is placed in his DockATot® and I am always so impressed with the lasting softness and sturdiness. If you haven’t yet, visit the DockATot® website to see what the rave is all about here! Again, all opinions are my own from our personal experience with our DockATot® I just had to share how this baby product has made my life easier as I transition into the role of a new mama!
