Gear Review: DockATot Deluxe Multi-Functional Baby Dock

DockATot FI

The DockATot Deluxe dock is a multifunctional and multi use docking station for baby ages 0-8 months old. It offers a safe and comfortable place for baby to play, lay, or sleep. It can also be used for lounging, tummy time, and diaper changes. The DockATot is a lightweight and portable option for travel. You can also buy additional covers to customize your DockATot however you would like. I have been on the lookout for a product that is portable to take on vacation or when we are traveling to visit family for our little guy. I also wanted to find something we could use to transition him to his crib.

Conclusion

DockATot

I found that the DockATot worked wonders when we traveled. It allowed our baby to sleep and be able to lounge regardless of where we were. I have also found it to be very useful at home with having a toddler as well. I can leave our baby in it and he has a secure place to lay. In addition, it has helped us transition him to his crib. He has always liked to sleep securely in a sleepsack and the DockATot provides that same feeling. He now has a snuggly place to sleep on his own. I received the Minty Trellis color and loved it instantly! The color is a beautiful light blue/green. Even with the price point, I would highly recommend the DockATot to anyone who travels a lot. This is a lifesaver and a safe place for baby to be while away from home. I would also recommend this product to any families having trouble transition baby to the crib. The DockATot provides a safe and cozy place for baby to sleep independently.
