The DockATot ReviewSponsored By: DockATot!
DockATot sent me this to review for you guys, you’ll be able to pick one up for yourself on their website!
I’ll start out with a little story; our fifth baby is a very light sleeper, he has a hard time going down for a nap or to bed for the night. I feel as though we really have to switch up his sleeping routine nightly and rotate out our arrangement in order for him to sleep peacefully. We received the DockATot a few weeks ago and I wanted to be sure he loved it before posting this review.
I have nothing but great things to say about this product, I think it is the perfect addition to my home and our sleeping style. My little guy loves to lay on his tummy in the warm sun during the day and because I’m within an arm’s reach at all times, I know that he is safe because the material is very breathable. We have the DockATot Deluxe which he will use until around 8 months of age. From that point, he will transition to the Grand which is for babies up to 36 months!
I love sleeping with the DockATot Deluxe next to me, I feel like that is the safest sleeping arrangement for baby and it’s comfortable. Our son doesn’t seem to move a whole lot while sleeping at night and even if he did, there is still that breathable material. We will be traveling next week and it is my fear that the beds won’t be as large as my own at home. Luckily we can bring our Dock with us and it can be used on the floor as well.
My Favorite Thing:
I really just love seeing my son so happy, the second we put him in the DockATot, he smiles from ear to ear. He is always so comfortable and happy and really, what more can a mother ask for?
Cleaning our Dock was easy, I took the cover off by unzipping it. Within the cover, there are two padded parts which can be washed but since I was treating just surface spots, I didn’t see the need to wash the inside parts. I followed the instructions very carefully (it does say to use a garment bag which I didn’t have so I washed mine on the hand wash setting of my washing machine.)
The white stayed white and it looks brand new again!
We received our @dockatot a few weeks ago and I have to say, this changed our sleeping situation tremendously! The material is breathable so I can let my son lounge and play knowing that he is safe. I am about to go on vacation for spring break and I think I'll bring it along! It fits comfortably between us while we sleep for a safe co-sleeping situation! #dockatot #cosleeping #naturalparenting #love #life #motherhood #parenting #motherhoodunplugged #mom #dad #shoes #cute #snow #idahofalls #momblogger #momblog #bloggers
Pretty happy about this #milestone! The verdict is in: we love the @dockatot! This breathable baby bed should be on your list of must haves. My little guy can lounge in it and sleep in it until around 9 months which is much longer than a bassinet or a rock n play. Also, thanks to @milestonebaby we can document this amazing day with a photo (that I won't find later in life thinking I was just a cute shot!) #milestonebaby #milestone cards #dockatot #sleep #baby #happy #motherhood #momlife #love #registry #registrymusthave #productsilove
This is a great product, I think it is something that all parents should look into. Some have complained that the price is too high however, I feel that you cannot put a price on a good night’s sleep. Also, if you compare this to a bassinet, you can’t use those past a certain milestone (rolling over) and for me, that milestone is surpassed at 4 months with most of ours so to spend $70 on something like that, it seems crazy.

Hi! Thank you for reading my blog posts, I'm a mother of five with twin boys set to arrive very soon! My days as a photographer began in Southern California where my friends and I had walls full of photos printed from our adventures. I currently shoot with a Canon 5D Mark IV but for the last 5 years I have used a Canon 70D Crop Sensor DSLR because it's the person who makes a good photographer, not the equipment. I strive to document life as it is, to #sustainchildhood is my ultimate goal for you and for me. If you've found my article interesting or helpful, please consider sharing this page and using the hashtag #sustainchildhood so that I can see your work!Alice
