A friend of mine raved about her DockATot and told me it was registry must-have, so when DockATot agreed to send me complimentary products for consideration I was really excited to try one!
We’ve been using ours with Tenley for a few weeks now – here are the 4 ways we use our DockATot.

# 1 / Lounge Time
After a feeding, our daughter is alert and happy.
I’ll place her in the DockATot next to me for some lounging time on the couch.
It’s also a lifesaver if I’m home alone and I desperately need to run to the bathroom, answer the door or quickly grab something from upstairs.
I can lay her down and I know she’s safe for a few minutes there.
# 2 / Activity Time
Every week she gets more and more wake and activity time.
I’ll slip on the mobile toy arch and she will stare up at the animals and wave her hands.
It keeps her engaged and entertained before her next nap time.
# 3 / Tummy Time
We also started regular, supervised tummy time.
I simply place her arms over the rounded side and watch her lift her head up. She absolutely loves it and so do I!
We do this for a few minutes multiple times per day – tummy time helps develop her neck strength and motor skills.

# 4 / Snuggle Time
Sometimes I just want to lay in bed and snuggle my babe!
Our family doesn’t co-sleep so I look forward to this cuddle time in the morning.
The DockATot provides a safe barrier against our bed pillows and blankets.
We have the Deluxe size for 0-8 Months, but I plan to upgrade to the Grand size for 9-36 months.
I love having both covers to swap out when one is being washed.
Because of the zipper, they are surprisingly easy to take off and put back on.
