It’s safe to say that both Willa and I are obsessed with our DockATot.
During the first few days of Willa’s life, she was pretty fussy if we weren’t holding and rocking her. Both Peter and I started to feel pretty frustrated because we couldn’t get much of anything done while trying to hold her! Insert obvious note – settling into life with a newborn is quite the adjustment. But as soon as we pulled out the DockATot and placed her in it, she laid there calmly and with no fuss while still staying alert. It felt like a miracle after all those tears! We like to play rain noises beside her while she lays in it, and she is just happy as a clam. The DockATot mimics the womb and makes her feel right at home. Coming into this world was quite a shock so creating an environment similar what she’s been used to for the past nine months has certainly been effective!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the brand, the DockATot is both a lounger and a co-sleeper. It is available in two different sizes. The Deluxe (for 1 – 8 months) is what we have, and it is absolutely perfect for newborns. The second size is called Grand (for 9 – 36 months) and is great for toddler bed transitions. The DockATots are handmade in Europe and designed in Sweden and are OEKO-TEX certified and made from all-natural, 100% cotton. As a mama who likes to steer more towards the natural side, I was excited to see this. It’s also super portable, and as I’m on the go quite a lot, this is something that is crucial for any baby products that I own!
The DockATot also comes in some pretty fabulous prints. We have the marble dock. I’m loving this floral print dock and this palm print too! It was actually pretty hard for me to decide between these three when I was selecting mine. I ended up going with the marble because it matched the best with our house’s decor. But I love them all so much!
I’m excited to be able to continue to use the DockATot as Willa grows. As she gets older it can be used for tummy time, lounging, and even diaper changes! I would definitely recommend this product to new mamas – anything that helps make the transition to motherhood easier is a must, and the DockATot is definitely high on my list of products that do just that!
