I added the DockATot to my list of must have baby essentials. I recently gave birth and finally had the chance to see it in action for a week. I wish I had this with my other children, especially with my second child who was a terrible sleeper, E is comfy and so happy snoozing away in it.

We received the DockATot Deluxe+ (for babies that are 0-8 months) to use for our newest addition – E. Our original plan was to use a collapsable bassinet to move from room to room. That proved to be a nice thought but deemed especially hard when you’re running on less than a couple of hours of sleep and adjusting to the newborn life once again.
Having the DockATot completely simplified this. Anything to make sleep-deprived parents lives easier right? The multiple handles makes it easy to grab and take it from room-to-room. I take it up with me at night to use on our bed in the morning while we wait for the boys to wake up. Once the boys wake up, I march them downstairs, scoop E up, and grab the DockATot to use on the playmat we have in our living room.
E is completely comfortable in it, whether she is awake or sleeping, but as you can see she loves sleeping in it!
I was excited to use this as it is considered a multi-functional lounger – for co-sleeping and playtime. Right now it’s mostly used for sleepytime. E sleeps just as soundly on the playmat as she does if it was placed on the bed. The boys love watching E sleep in the DockAtot. Being able to place this on the floor makes it easy for them to not only watch her but interact with her.
I was surprised with how soft the material is and the overall craftsmanship.The DockATot, which is handmade in Europe and designed in Sweden, is OEKO-TEX certified, all natural and 100% cotton, and has been tested for breathability. I love that E never seems to be too hot or too cold in it – always completely comfortable.
I had mentioned previously that this particular DockATot was sold out but the Deluxe+ in Pristine White but is now back in stock. There is also a selection of other Docks and cover sets to choose from ready for purchase. You can also purchase accessories such as toys/toy arches and travel bags.
Our verdict? DockATot is a must have. I think E’s smile proves it.
