We all know how messy babies and toddlers can be! Even though the DockATot is machine washable, since it’s used daily we all prefer it not be out of action while in the wash. This is where the DockATot Base Protector comes in!

Available in both the Deluxe and the Grand, this water-resistant liner fits perfectly around the bottom of your DockATot allowing you to place it in any environment— parks, beaches or your backyard—without worry. The liner folds into its attached drawstring storage pouch, so you can toss it in a nappy bag, carry-on, or stroller basket.

Here are 6 ways you can use your DockATot Base Protector in and around your house to potentially save you from needing to wash your DockATot cover. Keeping clean has never been so simple!


1. Having A Shower

One of life's little luxuries does become slightly difficult once your baby is earthside. Having a quick shower can become quite the process as you juggle keeping an eye on your baby if you don't have somewhere safe to put them in the bathroom. Your DockATot Deluxe and Base Protector are here to help you enjoy a relaxing shower while knowing your baby is soothed and settled.

Pop the water-resistant Base Protector on your dock while you shower to ensure no water is soaked up on the base. Simply take it off and let it dry if it does get wet, and continue using your DockATot


2. Preparing Dinner

If, like me, you like to use many different dishes as you prepare dinner and tend to make a bit of mess, you can put your Base Protector on to ensure no tomato sauce or liquids that end up on the floor are soaked up by the bottom of the DockATot. 


3. Working in the Garden


As many of us have turned to gardening and other home projects while in lockdown, the Base Protector is the perfect addition to your dock as you work around your garden. If you have more sunshine in your garden then shade, perhaps the Cabana Kit would be a great add on as it's made of UV 50+ Protected Fabric. 


4. Bathing the Other Kids


Bubble baths for older kids is always wild fun, but rarely does the water stay in the bath. The Base Protector means you can sit next to the bath and look after your older kids while your newborn lounges close by without getting your dock wet. Unfortunately the Base Protector won't stop you from getting wet!


5. By the Pool


If you have a backyard pool or visit a local paddling pool during Summer, the Base Protector can come in handy to protect the base of your DockATot. Make sure you find a nice shady spot, pop your Base Protector on and know that you won't have stains or water soaking up through the bottom of the dock.


6. Backyard Picnic


We all love a summertime backyard picnic with friends and family! The older kids can play together while the little ones can lounge close by in their DockATots. To prevent grass stains, dirt stains or even dust marks just put the Base Protector on, find a sheltered spot next to you and enjoy hands free moments.


Base Protector Hack

If you're baby tends to make a mess while you're changing them, pop the waterproof protector over your change mattress so you can wipe and go without needing to throw it all in the wash!
