If you’ve followed us for at least a little while, you know that we are huge DockATot fans! The Dock is one of my must have baby items (as seen here) and I am a firm believer that everyone needs one if you have a baby. We didn’t purchase the DockATot deluxe (which is the size for newborn to eight months) until Madison was about two months old. I hesitated because of the price tag, but my only regret was not having it sooner! It paid for itself because Madison slept like a dream since we received it. We used the deluxe size until Madison started to roll over.
What is a DockATot?
If you’re not familiar with the Holy Grail that is DockATot, let me explain a little more about it. DockATot is a multi-functional lounger, co-sleeper and playtime lounger. It comes in two sizes. The Deluxe is for newborn to 8 months of age and the Grand is for 9 to 36 months of age. The DockATot is designed in Sweden and made in Europe. It has extensively been tested for breath-ability and is OEKO-TEX certified. It is designed to make the baby feel like they are back in the womb. Genius!
Why we love the DockATot!
We were lucky with two great sleepers, but I really do credit a lot of our success with Madison’s amazing sleep to the Dock. One of my best friends who is a sleep consultant at Sleep and the City, highly recommends the DockATot. Babies thrive on consistency and love having a familiar place to sleep. The Dock is great to bring with you if you go out of town. It’s perfect to take with you to a friend’s house so you can have safe and familiar place to let your baby hang out. Another one of my favorite features of the DockATot is that the cover is washable! I have washed the cover probably 1,000 times, and it comes out beautifully every time.
McKinlee’s bow c/o A Little Lady Shop
We were recently gifted the DockATot Grand and we are in love! The girls love lounging in it outside, in the family room and sleeping in it. Technically, it’s for Madison but McKinlee sure seems to enjoy hanging out in there. We are excited to use it for transitioning Madison to her toddler bed (whenever that day comes, definitely not rushing it!). It will be the perfect spot for her to still feel cozy in the larger sleep environment.

Madison looks a little concerned because she really doesn’t want to share the Dock with her big sis!
We received the DockATot Grand in exchange for an honest review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!
