Product Review: DockATot



Those first few nights at home with a newborn are just brutal. I remember thinking over and over again with Little Fix-It how there must be something evolutionarily askew that women have the dual burden of physically recovering from childbirth and caring for a newborn. "My body is torn, bleeding, aching, my nipples are throbbing, and I am unable to sleep for more than 90 minutes. The universe got this so terribly wrong."

When it comes to sleep my philosophy is: WHATEVER WORKS. I know a lot of people choose to have their babies sleep in their rooms. I do not understand these people. Trust me, I get the convenience. I just simply cannot sleep with a child within earshot. "Is that fuss the start of a wake up? Are they breathing funny? I'll just stay awake and listen in case I need to do something." That's me. All night long. When we brought the twins home I was sure we would have them in our bedroom because I'd be recovering from a scheduled c-section and Mr. Fix-It could hand me a baby for overnight feedings. Know how long that lasted? 3 hours. Not even a whole night.

So, while my kids sleep down the hall, in their room, with the door closed I need the peace of mind that they are safe. Enter the DockATot.


I was familiar with the product from enthusiastic recommendations of fellow moms. So, when I got the opportunity to review one via Savvy Sassy Moms I jumped at the chance. A few benefits:
  • mimics the womb
  • fully portable
  • breathable surface
  • washable cover
  •  reduces risk of flat head syndrome
  • reduces startle reflex

Simply put: It's a cozy sleep space that creates comfort and security. And our littlest guy loves it.


He is happy, safe, and at 6 weeks only waking for ONE overnight feeding. It's amazing. We are all so wonderfully rested.

The other thing I love is that the DockATot doesn't create a sleep habit I later have to "undo". With Little Fix-It, I dreaded the day we stopped letting him sleep in the swing. Same for the twins with their Rock N Plays. With the DockATot, our little guy is already in the crib. As he grows, the bottom unclips so his legs can stretch out. There is also a larger size, The Grand, for ages 9mos-36mos.


We are definite DockATot fans! It gets our 4th baby "Product We Didn't Know We Couldn't Live Without" seal of approval!
