When you're a new dad, it's not about how many gifts you get on Father's Day, but the quality of those gifts. Treat dad like a champ on his special day (even if he's not a gold medalist like dock dad Michael Phelps, pictured above) and he'll be over the moon. Here are our tips for how to celebrate Father's Day with your family. Hint: DockATot is the perfect accessory for dad to get the most out of his special day.

Let him snooze: Sleep is one of the most important and best things you can do for your body. Let dad log in a long nap on Father's Day (co-sleeping with his little ones in DockATot, of course!). Since our launch, we've heard from many new mamas about how much they love their DockATot. But it's not just mums who are obsessed, we get plenty of dads writing in about how DockATot has made their journey into fatherhood so much easier and less sleep deprived.

DockATot provides a safe and secure spot for little ones to co-sleep with daddy. Co-sleeping is an amazing way to bond with your baby. Treat him to a massage beforehand and set the stage for a long, uninterrupted nap. Just make sure you turn his ringer off!

Breakfast in bed: This is an oldie but goodie, but never goes unappreciated. Let him sleep in on Father's Day while you sneak out of the room to scoop up the baby and then head to the kitchen to whip up his fave brekkie.

Picnic in the park: Start a Father's Day tradition of a picnic in the park with your family. Bring a bottle of wine, some fancy cheeses, some fresh farmer's market finds and a loaf of bread and you've got yourself the perfect spread. Don't forget to bring your DockATot Deluxe so baby can have a safe, snug place to chill, nap or rest while you and daddy leisurely nibble and sip the day away.
