When DockATot founder Lisa Furuland first came up with the idea for the DockATot, it was to solve her own problem of how to co-sleep safely and comfortably in her bed with her children. When her first child was born and she was unable to find the perfect lounging product to fit their needs.
“When my son Ilias was born in 2006, I searched unsuccessfully for an alternative to the blanket, the cot, and the baby lounger,” she says. “I craved something more snug and at the same time more versatile.”
She wanted to create a high-quality product that was as beautiful as it was functional, a lounger that she would have 100% confidence in using with her own children. It turns out she wasn’t alone - the DockATot Deluxe+, our Stage I dock for ages approximately 0-8 months was an instant hit. It wasn’t long after that the idea for the Grand dock came along.
The Grand dock is the Stage II DockATot, designed for little ones 9-36 months. The Grand was created to provide a comfortable place for growing tots to lounge, rest, play, and sleep, much like the Deluxe+.
Our multitasking stage 2 dock for babies age 9–36 months, the Grand is perfect for cuddling, playing, lounging, resting and everything in between. It’s ideal for travel—either from room to room, grandma’s house or on vacation. It’s also ideal for bed transitioning, thanks to built-in sides that allow young children to settle more easily in a bigger bed. The DockATot Grand gives little ones a snug sense of security in their newer, bigger beds.
