Hi friends! We made it to Florida and have been having so much fun. Ashton did way better than expected on the trip down. I was very anxious about this being his first vacation but it couldn’t have gone better.
My number one item to bring when traveling with an infant is a DockATot. I heard about these for so long before finally getting one and I’m not sure why I waited so long! We literally use this all the time and it was so useful while traveling and on vacation. My friends and DockATot even provided me with a discount code for my readers which I will share at the end of this post.
So let’s break it down. What is a DockATot exactly? A DockATot is a multi-functional lounger, co-sleeper, and playtime lounger for babies. The DockATot comes in two different sizes, a Deluxe size for babies newborn – 8 months old and a Grand size for babies 9-36 months old.
When your baby is an infant, the DockATot is the perfect spot to lay your baby while you’re doing your day to day activities around the house (all while supervising your little one of course!). The larger size is great for older babies and allows them a little more freedom to sit, nap, and play all while feeling snug. The Grand size is also perfect for your Toddler’s transition from crib to bed. A few of my friends have tried this method and it worked wonders!
DockATot’s are handmade in Europe, are all natural, and made of 100% cotton. Each lounger is tested for it’s breathability and is also OEKO-TEX certified. I was extremely impressed with the quality when I received my DockATot. It’s also pretty easy to clean off which is EVERYTHING when you’re a new mom!
It was so nice being able to visit with family and take some time to relax on vacation while Ashton was sitting next to me in his DockATot. It gave me peace of mind knowing he was safe and secure. I usually put his DockATot on the floor or bed right beside me and lay him down in it. I’ll either hand him a toy or give him a bottle and read him a story and he is usually content for an hour or two. It’s extremely nice to have that time to myself hands free! You mamas know what I’m talking about! 🙂
Every evening on vacation we had dinner on the porch to watch the gorgeous sunsets. Normally Ashton wants held which is obviously inconvenient. Instead, we laid his DockATot on the ground right near us and laid him down. This worked perfectly!
I’ve used this so much while traveling and will definitely be taking it on all our future trips with Ash! If you’re interested in trying a DockATot, you can use code KELLITESTA10 active now and until February 28th.
