Christmas has arrived in the playroom and the girls were so excited to help (and play) while I decorated! Emilia and Isla quickly commandeered the Dockatot Grand as a "boat" to play on while I put the finishing touches on the tree. It was too cute!
I recently received the Dockatot Grand compliments of Dockatot for little Miss Isla. I was much more prepared for the challenges of newborn sleep when Isla came around because Emilia was simply such a horrible sleeper as a baby. I used and loved the Dockatot Delux from the time we brought Isla home from the hospital to age nine months when she finally grew out of it. It was truly a lifesaver for us as a happy cosleeping family. It was the perfect sleep solution until she eventually grew out of it. Naturally, I jumped on the chance to try out the larger size for Isla!
I call Isla my little lounger because this girl LOVES to lounge. If I lose sight of her upstairs, I can always find her lounging either in her room, her sister's room, or the play room. She is obsessed with playing on and lounging on this Dockatot Grand. It is the cutest thing you guys! She just climbs right in to either snuggle or play. It absolutely kills me!
I have found the biggest benefit to having the size up is using it as the perfect, safe nap spot. I travel a lot with my girls and napping is absolutely the hardest part of travel with babies. There is never anywhere safe to put them! And we don't lug around a pack and play just for these situations--I like to be minimal with my travel gear! I just stick the Dockatot Grand on the floor and rock Isla to sleep and then she is good! She stays safely asleep and is not at risk of falling or getting tangled in blankets--all those things we worry so much about as moms!
Today, when it was time for a quick nap for Isla, I was able rock her to sleep and place her safely in the Dockatot on the floor under the newly decorated tree so I could do a few final festive touches upstairs. Is there anything sweeter than a sleeping baby under the glow of a Christmas tree?!?
This is absolutely the one product that I make sure my friends and family who are expecting know about. Dockatot is designed in Sweden and handmade in Europe. It is a beautiful design that is also functional--which is my favorite kind of product, you guys. The Dockatot Grand is a favorite of Isla's and I know it is going to make the crib to toddler bed transition so much easier for her as that time nears! I'll make sure to keep you updated on here and share our experience with that big transition when it comes!
