As parents get ready to welcome a little one earth-side, there are many things to consider. The same comes when purchasing a DockATot. We have a range of prints available, then there is the question of getting a Cabana Kit, Transport Bag or maybe a Toy Arch. Spare Covers also come in handy!
We also sometimes get questions about what size DockATot to purchase. The answer is usually pretty straightforward. We always recommend the Deluxe+ size for newborns up until about 8/12 months old, however some babies use the Deluxe+ much longer, up until about a two years old. It’s meant to be snug to create a sense of being held.
The Grand size is designed for little ones approximately 9-36 months old. We advise against using the Grand before 9 months. Because the Grand is much roomier, babies won’t benefit from the snugness created by the Deluxe+ dock.
To help provide some context, we’ve 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’s important to remember that all babies are different and have different needs, but hopefully this compilation will create a frame of reference.
