Our sweet Berkeley Mae was born this summer, on June 21, 2017. It was an easy delivery and she completed our now, family of six. I’ve had a lot of practice with babies over the past nine years. I’ve birthed four and fostered six, and because of this, we’ve tried a ton of baby products. Some have been amazing and others, a complete waste of money. I’ve also learned that babies have preferences and they aren’t all buying what companies are selling. Sometimes swinging around like a monkey isn’t soothing, but actually quite terrifying. Berkeley made sure we knew this by crying every time we tried it. So… one expensive product was passed along to her cousin who actually enjoys it.
This time around, we were gifted the DockATot Deluxe, and it is hands down the baby product we’ve used the most over the past six months. We are a co-sleeping family and the DockATot has made it much easier for us to do this. I’ve gotten so much more sleep and Berkeley loves the cozy feel of it and has been sleeping through the night since 10 weeks.
So you may be wondering, what is the DockATOt?
DockATot® is a multi-functional lounging, playing, chilling, resting and snuggling dock you can take anywhere. Designed in Sweden, it has been tested for breathability, is OEKO-TEX certified, all natural and 100% cotton. It has an ideal micro-climate for babies and toddlers. It’s also machine washable.
We have found all of this to be true. We use the DockATot Deluxe (0-8 months) for naps at home and when we are traveling or at others’ homes. Berkeley has slept in her DockATot in hotels, at my 93 year old grandfather’s house, on her cousins nursery floor and many other places. We are planning on carrying it on the airplane with us in a few weeks so she can nap in it, on our four hour flight.

Berkeley is constantly being smothered in hugs and kisses by her siblings, so sometimes you can see her breathe a sigh of relief when we put her in her DockATot. It’s her comfort spot away from mommy. We love that she has a consistent place to rest!

We are looking forward to trying the next size, DockATot Grande in the coming weeks!
