DockATot baby loungers / infant co-sleepers are designed so that the baby's face (mouth and nose) sits comparatively high in relation to the sides of the product. The sides are low and also rounded. A baby correctly positioned in the dock, i.e. on his back, is breathing into “open air” so to speak. The design is made with consideration to not trap used air (breath; carbon dioxide).
Unlike other baby bassinets or moses baskets, the dock's interior has been carefully engineered in order to achieve maximum breathability. All our baby loungers comply with the British standard on air-permeability for infant pillows, BS4578 – a test most companies in the U.S. don't even perform. Air-permeability standards were established only for infant pillows, but we decided to meet these standards for our docks.
At DockATot™, we are always doing our best to go above and beyond the call of duty with regards to the highest quality standards.
OEKO-TEX Standard Certified Materials
Every single part of the DockATot (fabrics, fibers, zippers, sliders, pull tabs, straps, buckles) are Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class 1 certified. This means they have been rigorously tested and proven free from harmful or toxic substances.
Compliant with the US Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA)
The CPSIA enforces strict testing on children's products. DockATot has been tested for all of the below–and passed with flying colors!
Heat Resistant Design
All materials used in the DockATot were chosen because they do not harbour heat. We have made sure not to use any waterproof layers within the dock. This is all to ensure that the micro-climate is the best possible. When dressed correctly – according to the overall room (surrounding) climate – a child will not be too warm in the DockATot, as air flows through the dock and it does not harbor heat.
DockATot has received the following additional certifications in the U.S. and E.U.:
We hope your family feels safe and smart about using DockATot, too.
