After having my baby girl, I’ve had to find creative ways to get her to sleep. One thing that has really helped me get her to sleep is her DockATot. I can’t say enough about this awesome handmade lounger.
The day I came home from the hospital, I came home with a very sick husband. I was exhausted and sore and I needed some relaxation. I took out the DockATot and laid my girl in it. She loved it and immediately fell asleep in it. Afterwards, my pup, husband and I all passed out too. At night, my husband slept in the living room so he wouldn’t get my daughter and I sick, and I braced myself for a long night. I took out the DockATot and placed it in bed with me so I could co-sleep and keep a close eye and ear on my babe. To my delight, my daughter actually slept really well. She didn’t roll around or cry and she looked really comfortable. She only woke when she wanted to eat.
The DockATot has been great for times my daughter is tired. I’m able to put her in it and she zonks out. It’s breathable and made of 100% all natural cotton so it’s soft, yet firm enough to lay her in. It’s made in Sweden, where design and safety are top priorities and it’s also OEKO-TEX certified, so it’s been tested for harmful substances. I got the Deluxe size, which is suitable for babes 0-8 months old but they also have a larger size, Grand, which is suitable for little ones ages 9-36 months old. My daughter loves it because it leaves her a bit of room but it’s also cocoon-like, so it’s reminiscent of the womb. Another great thing about the DockATot is that it doesn’t hold heat, so my babe stays content and comfortable.
What I love is that my baby can use the DockATot for so many things — co-sleeping, nap times, tummy time, playing and lounging. It’s been said that the DockATot is also good for transitioning a toddler to their own bed. Oh! And one of the best things — the DockATot is MACHINE WASHABLE! 🙂 So, say your baby randomly spits up, has a blow out, or what have you — you can wash the cover for the lounger! It’s wonderful. Now, I’ll be honest and I will admit that the price tag is a bit steep.. but it’s a handmade item that can be used for so many purposes. You’re also able to have that peace of mind in knowing that it’s safe and that definitely is a good thing.
I love the DockATot and I know my daughter does too. It’s definitely been a lifesaver for me these past few weeks and will continue to be a lifesaver.
