We often receive questions about what size DockATot to purchase. The answer is simple, we always recommend the Deluxe+ size for newborns up until about 8 months. Some babies however use the Deluxe+ up until 12 months old by simply releasing the clasp to offer baby more legroom. The Deluxe Dock is meant to be snug to create a sense of being held.
The Grand lounger is designed for little ones approximately 9-36 months old. We advise against using the Grand before 9 months because it is much roomier and babies will not benefit from the snugness created by the Deluxe+ dock.
To help provide some context, we have compiled a collection of photos to give parents an idea of what babies look like at different ages and weights in both the Deluxe+ and Grand docks. It is important to remember all babies are different but hopefully this compilation will create a helpful frame of reference.
