When it comes to sleeping we have finally found one of the best sleeping miracles ever made. In the next few weeks you will see a series of posts comprised of our favorite sleep products for our kiddos.
The DockATot is a multi-functional lounger, co-sleeper and playtime lounger. But has now become our favorite thing when traveling.
A ton of people as about my bedtime routines for the kids and what I have used or currently use for sleep routines. And this has become our favorite by far.
The first mommy must have I have come crossed this last month was our Dock A Tot! We have traveled so much it seems this last week, I have found it to become one of our favorite products especially through out our traveles. It has been a huge lifesaver when it comes to sleep.
The Dock A Tot is pretty amazing because it fits perfectly in the crib, and when we have been traveling we have been able to put it right on the bed without worrying about her on the edge, in between us, or even sharing the other bed with the two older ones. My little peach has not had a problem sleeping because wherever we go her bed goes as well!
We loved using these in the hotels when traveling this last week before the holidays. They definitely came in handy for our youngest two who (1) didn’t have her crib and (2) the little man who rolls out of bed all the time. Just make sure to unclip the bottom buckles when putting kids to sleep. Look how darling my littlest peach is doing her tummy time on it? She loves laying there watching her siblings play. While I know she is thinking, “Why can’t I do that yet!?”
Transitioning to a Toddler Bed
When she gets bigger she will move up to the Grand Dock A Tot which we have fallen in love with almost more than the smaller one! Our little man has been in a toddler bed for the last few months, however, could not stay in his bed to save his life.
He would constantly fall out of bed, or roll and get his little feet stuck in the side rails. For us this meant consistent nights of going in and checking on his cute self and seeing where in his room he landed for sleep that night. Basically, it was where is waldo on a nightly basis. Ever since using the Grand Dock A Tot our little man has not rolled out once! He loves his “new bed” so much he was so excited. Now that we have moved we cannot wait to get his new bed (instead of the crib) and put it in the bed for him! I have kinda been loving the bedding from HM for my kids. Very plain but would be really cute with accent pillows and throw blankets. His (grey)| Hers (pink)
Parenting Your Way
The bottom line when it comes to sleep with any baby is just to try it your way, with things that work for you. The things I will mention in the next week you might have tried and not loved. But I do know that since having the opportunity to try the Dock A Tot alone it has been awesome for everyone in general.
There is truly no one way to make sleeping easier for your kids. But finding something that works for your child or even for the parents in general makes all the difference. You heard me rave about the baby products I didn’t need in life but now can’t live with out! haha This is one that made it to the list.
Summary of Product
A few key things to know about, it is breathable, natural and 100% Cotton made in Europe. The material it is made of allows it to be breathable and gave me less anxiety at night knowing it was made to be breathable for newborns. Also I have noticed from going from Texas to Utah this last week it has been extremely perfect micro climate friendly for babies and toddlers. I have made sure to wash out the cover more when in Texas because of them sweating or drooling. Now that we are in Utah, these poor kids are freezing their bums off and stay cuddled inside the bed. Haha.
While it seems like a lot when looking at the price they offer a few payment options for those who cannot pay the full amount right then and there. I was provided one dockatot for review but saw how amazing it was and ended up buying one for the baby on black friday! And it is totally worth it. Honest. I never review products I do not use or have tried myself and wished I had this with every child from the beginning.
So if you are looking for a co-sleeper, lounger to take from room to room with your newborn, or even a way to transition your little one to a toddler bed, you might want to look into the DockATot and see what they have to offer. I have loved the time we have been using it so far while moving.
