I’ve had our DockATot for about a month now, and I’m growing to love it more each day. We have the Deluxe+ in Pristine White. This DockATot is the stage one dock meant for ages 0-8 months. It’s truly so perfect for babies. Oliver is completely protected in it and I feel safe leaving the room for a minute while he’s in it, which hasn’t been the case with some other products I’ve tried. It’s lightweight, and it has a handle on the end which makes porting it around the house easy (always a plus when carrying a baby). The cover zips on and off and it is machine washable.
I wanted to write my review on this product last week but decided to wait because we went on a last minute road trip this past weekend and I wanted to travel with it. Let me just tell you, it was PERFECT to travel with. The dock comes with a plastic cover that easily zips around it to keep all the potential travel germs and ick off of it. It packs easily in the car because of the shape and takes up a lot less room that our usual bassinet that we bring for Oliver. We don’t usually let Oliver sleep in the bed with us, but we did for this trip because I didn’t want him on the floor. He looked so cute and cozy sleeping peacefully in his dock. I can vouch for how comfortable it is because I used it as a little pillow so I could be closer to him.
The docks go up to a grand size which is their stage two and fits babies up to thirty-six months. It seems like this one would be perfect for transitioning tots from their cribs to big kid beds, but with the size of it, I’m not sure how great it would be for traveling. Maybe I’ll get one when we’re at that point, try it out, and let you know!
