5 Reasons Every New Mom Needs A Dock-A-Tot

5 Reasons Every New Mom Needs A Dock-A-Tot

5 Reasons Every New Mom Needs A Dock-A-Tot

As a mother of two and the owner of not one, but TWO Dock-A-Tots (Deluxe (0-9 months) AND Grand (9-36 months), I can say with the utmost confidence that every mom needs one of these on her registry. Yes, the price tag may make you wonder about it’s worth, but I can’t imagine life with a newborn or a toddler without one!

If you haven’t heard of the Dock-A-Tot, let me give you a bit of background before we get into why I can’t live without it. The Dock-A-Tot is a stylish and functional baby lounger that creates a small, breathable and safe environment for your baby.

Babies are in your womb for nine months so when they are born, they like small spaces that mimic the womb, like swaddles. The Dock-A-Tot isn’t made with any toxic ingredients and has been rigorously tested to ensure safety and allow peace of mind for moms like me who worry about EVERY thing. They are comfortable, durable, and worth their weight in gold. Can you tell i’m obsessed?

 

Anyway, whenever moms ask me about products I can’t live without, this is my number one answer, and here’s why:

  1. Safe Haven for Newborns: Whether you’re a mom of one or five, we can all agree that having a newborn can be tough and getting any other work done can seem nearly impossible. The Dock-A-Tot allows me to place Presley in a safe space where she can’t roll and hurt herself and where she is happy. At the end of the day, that’s all we really want; a safe, happy baby. I’m able to play with Hudson, do the dishes, vacuum the living room, all while knowing that she is SAFE! 
  2. Easy to clean: Did I mention they are machine washable? Yea. That’s what mom dreams are made of. I have washed both of their Dock-A-Tots SO MANY TIMES, and whether it was pee or muddy paws (yes, even the dog tries to get in on the action), they always come out looking good as new. PLUS you can buy new covers so you’ll never get bored!
  3. Travel Friendly: We take our Dock-A-Tots EVERY WHERE. Literally. Hudson can’t sleep without it and it fits perfectly in a pack n play or just on the floor for a cozy place to rest his head no matter where we are. You can also get travel bags for even easier travel. They are light, have handles and an absolute necessity for on-the-gp or just dragging to another room!
  4. Helps with Transitioning from Crib to Toddler Bed: While your newborn shouldn’t be sleeping all night in the Deluxe size, the Grand is perfect for older kids who are making the switch from the safety of their crib to a big boy bed. We started by putting the Grand in Hudson’s crib and then put it in his big boy bed when we made the switch. He feels safe and protected, doesn’t fall out of the bed, and the switch was so much less daunting because he was already familiar with sleeping in the Dock-A-Tot
  5. Eco-Friendly: If you know me then you know how passionate I am about ridding my home of toxins. One overlooked fact about the Dock-A-Tot is that, unlike most children’s mattresses, it is free from harsh chemicals and totally hypo-allergenic. They are Oeko-Tex certified which means you don’t have to worry about your newborn baby’s skin soaking up any harmful chemicals.

I could keep going but I’ll leave you with that for now. The Dock-A-Tot has become a staple in our daily lives, especially since Presley entered the picture. I love knowing that both my kids have a safe happy place to call their own. The peace of mind alone is worth every penny, but the added luxuries of the Dock-A-Tot make it an absolute must-have for new and experienced moms.

Always,

Alexie

  • This is what fat and happy looks like, folks! She is probably the chattiest baby EVER, and also the smiliest. At two months, she's already brightening every room she enters and I am so proud to be her mama. Her little half smile and chunky rolls make me a better person and she's a constant reminder of the blessings I've been given. •

  • Flowers. Because it's Tuesday but It feels like it should be Friday. Ear infections suck! Anybody have any tips for pesky ear infections? So far we've got bubble guppies, saltines and the occasional popsicle! •

  • Both of my babies are SLEEPING! What a glorious moment in #momlife. 
Hudson has a double ear infection and I cried last night while I cuddled him back to sleep for the second time. As moms we just want to take our babies pain away. We would literally do ANYTHING to save them from pain but unfortunately we can only do what we can do and loving them unconditionally (even when they are screaming, kicking, and in pain) is often the only answer we have! 
Anywho, look how big my baby is. I think I blinked and he turned into a little man. Luckily, he is still a total mama's boy and craves all the cuddles, snuggles, and being carried around he can get. Literally. I had him in a sling the other day and didn't even hate it. That's all I've got today. I'm gonna go take a bath or sit in silence for the first time in two months. •

  • My two month old may look like a six month old, but she is the cutest chunk I've ever seen. And yes, she does have red hair. ✌🏻#theresnoredheademoji #dontdiscriminate •

  • This sweet little girl is TWO MONTHS OLD TODAY! Unlike her rambunctious brother, she has a much quieter spirit. She loves to nurse (can you tell) and wants to be cuddled all day long. Literally, she doesn't like to be put down. Her favorite song is 1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive and she giggles every time daddy blows on her head. She's so strong and can already hold her head up and put weight on her little feet! I'm hoping she waits a little longer than her brother to start walking (he started at nine months)! I still stare at her little face as much as I can and I love when she smiles at me first thing every morning. We cosleep and she has to be laying right against me at all times. I never knew I could love ANOTHER human the way I love Hudson and even though it's different, it's such a powerful never ending love that I can't put into words. Happy two months to you my sweet baby girl. You are more than I ever could have dreamed of. •

  • Erm serious question...WHEN DID MY NEWBORN GET SO BIG?! She's in the 95th percentile and growing like a weed. Literally she's like almost as big as Hudson and she's not even two months old yet! Ok...tomorrow she's officially two months old but today she's not so I'm gonna relish in my last few moments of a one month old. HAPPY SATURDAY! •

  • I almost forgot what it was like to shower with a baby staring at me the whole time! Thanks for reminding me, P. 😂 P.s. For those of you who aren't counting down, it's Friday tomorrow!
