The DockATot Grand & Toddlers

DockATot: Sleeping & Playtime Must Have!

One of the most highly sought after baby products of the last few years has been the DockATot. This is a game changer when it comes to keeping a baby cozy and comfortable while sleeping. The DockATot comes in two sizes: the Deluxe (used for ages 0-8 months) & the Grand (used for ages 9-36 months). I’ve heard rave reviews about the Deluxe so I was beyond excited to try out the “Grand” version for Marley.

DockATot Lounger

I love that the DockATot is multi-functional. Not only can it be used for sleeping but it is also a playtime lounger! It is made from 100% cotton and tested for breathability.

Marley is 20 months old and most nights she is a great sleeper. There have been a few times shortly after her 18 month sleep regression where she seemed uncomfortable, especially at nap time. Since using the DockATot grand I can honestly say her sleep is so much better. She loves snuggling so this truly gives her that feeling while sleeping. We’ve had less restless sleep and longer naps which is always a mom win!

The DockATot has become a permanent fixture in our living room. I can set it on our couch and both kids climb up and ask us to read them stories. I also often place it on the floor so the kids can play with their toys in it! Kellan loves to pretend that it is his “firetruck” and Marley calls it her “boat”. It’s great when an item serves so many purposes, including an imaginative one!

I am excited to continue using the DockATot grand until Marley turns 3. We are planning on doing a lot of traveling this spring and summer! I love that our grand comes with a convenient travel bag which makes packing for travel a breeze. I am confident this will be key for sleeping while away from home.

Clearly Marley wasn’t the only fan of the DockATot! Both kids have been loving just sitting or laying together reading books or watching movies. I can’t say enough about how much this product has meant to our family! I truly think this is a such a worthwhile long term investment that can benefit your child during each stage of childhood.

Finally, I wanted to share a fun video of my husband and Marley playing. The DockATot has become a staple in our household, and if you are a parent with a child between the ages of 0-36 months I think this is such a valuable product to have, a true investment that pays for itself with family fun & a good nights/days rest!

  1. This is a really cute. I wish they had this when my kids were little. I can totally see how it could extend play time, who can resist being nice and comfy. I also love the picture of your little one “sleeping”…lol.

    1. Haha thank you!! It’s honestly so cozy, I also SO wish I had the smaller version when my kids were younger. I can see why it’s such a hot baby registry item currently!

  2. I’m convinced this is the way to start out a baby from day one with the dock-a-tot but I never gave it a chance and I now regret it! You can take it anywhere and it becomes comforting to the baby. Great for traveling families. Unfortunately, my girl wont take to the grand because she isn’t used to it and prefers to now roll around in her crib. But next time around, I’m starting it out right! Thanks for the info!

    1. I totally agree! There are certain limitations with starting a bit later. I’m looking forward to using the gran to help transition Marley to a toddler bed when the time comes and also when we have some travel this spring. I SO wish I had it when she was smaller though!
