Each piece of the dock is washable, and care instructions are below for each piece (for more detailed instructions please refer to the label on the bottom of your dock cover). We do not recommend using bleach on any part of your dock - stain remover is preferred.
Outer Cover: Machine wash in cold water inside a garment bag and hang to air dry (to help avoid color bleeding for covers with prints, be sure to immediately hang to dry after machine cycle is finished and ensure there are no folds or overlapping when drying). Do not tumble dry. Do not bleach. Do not dry clean.
Pad: Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry. Do not iron. Do not bleach. Do not dry clean.
Inner Sleeve: Machine wash in cold water and hang to air dry. Do not tumble dry. Do not bleach. Do not dry clean.
Inner Tube: The tube rarely needs washing, shaking and ventilating are usually enough. If washing the tube, machine wash in cold water inside a garment bag and then tumble dry on low heat only. You can shake or fluff to redistribute the filling as necessary. If still damp, lay flat to dry. Do not iron. Do not bleach. Do not dry clean.
"DockATot is the BEST thing I have ever bought since becoming a Mummy!
Millie has used this everyday since she was 4 weeks old. ⠀⠀
A few reasons why we love it: ⠀⠀
- It cocoons her so she feels snug and secure which she loves.⠀⠀
- It was a god send in the early weeks as I wouldn't need to leave bed to breastfeed and resettle in the middle of the night. ⠀⠀
- We can take it away with us as it fits in one half of a suitcase, that way she can sleep anywhere and feel safe and familiar with her surroundings. ⠀⠀
- The cover is fully removable and machine washable.⠀⠀
As soon as we pop her in it, do up her sleep swaddle and turn on her white noise she is literally asleep within minutes. She knows it's time to sleep when she's in her little bed."
This is hands down the best baby item I have! It's used daily, I'd be absolutely lost without it! My baby boy sleeps so so well, which makes me one happy mumma!
"Oh my gosh if we did not purchase the DockATot, I don't know what we’d have done! He absolutely loves it and feels so snug.
The quality of this material, I haven't felt anything as beautiful! No one would understand till they try one. We will definitely upgrade to the Grand size as he grows.
Thank you so much, you don't understand how much this has helped baby Carter and us!”
The Deluxe+ Dock is the ultimate Stage 1 lounger for your baby aged 0-8+ months old.
One of our trademarks – ‘Reinventing the Womb’ – indicates that the DockATot is supposed to be snug. The snugness is actually what soothes your baby and subdues the startle reflex and makes them feel like they are being held. The snugger the fit, the more likely your baby will feel secure and settled.
To see how a growing baby fits in a DockATot month by month, take a look at our Magical Milestone’s blog which showcases how our Stage1 lounger ‘DockATot Deluxe’ can be used from birth to not just 8 months....but up until 12 months!
Parents often have the misconception their babies have prematurely outgrown the ‘DockATot Deluxe’, but it’s important to remember DockATot is designed to be snug. The snugness creates a familiar womb like space to soothe and settle your baby. Placing your newborn in our larger Stage 2 lounger will simply lose this soothing magic!
For taller babies, the clasp on the DockATot Deluxe can be unclipped to give the baby more legroom while still maintaining the soothing womb like effect around their upper bodies. Have a look at our Babies for Scale to see little ones in their DockATots at various ages and weights.
