You asked, we answered! One of the most frequent questions we get at DockATot is what's the difference between the Grand and the Deluxe DockATot. Choosing the right sized DockATot for your child is extremely important. Many of you ask why you can't just buy the Grand right away. It's a good question. Understanding the sizes and their benefits for each age group is critical to the success you'll have with DockATot.
Sizing up to the Grand before your child is nine months old presents a few issues. The most crucial reasons to start with the Deluxe sized DockATot for 0-9 month old babies are:
When thinking about the Grand versus the Deluxe size, focus on the width and not the length. The Deluxe is 45.5cm wide, which is typically wide enough to accommodate babies that are even in the most upper percentile. The length of the Deluxe size is fully adjustable, thanks to the clip at the foot end. Also, keep in mind that babies do not rest with their legs straight, but always somewhat curled. Not to mention, babies love the sense of being surrounded and enjoy resting their legs or feet on top of the bumper.
We totally understand the temptation to purchase a Grand from the start, but in the end it's not worth it. In fact, many parents use the Deluxe past the nine month mark. The buckle at the end of the Deluxe can be unbuckled to make room for your growing baby. The Grand is used by older children that can enter and exit the Dock on his own, and as such does not have a clip.
