All opinions here are my own.
Not only did my good friend recommend this but on every baby forum I have ever been on, everyone kept mentioning the infamous “DockAtot” saying it was a life saver. The DocKATot is a multi-functional lounger, co-sleeper and playtime lounger that is 100% natural. Our pup Finn didn’t go in it but he sure as heck wanted to- and I won’t lie- I almost wanted to take a snuggle in there! It looks so cozy and I can see why babies are so hyped on these things! The sleeper is made in Europe and has been tested for breathability! I love all the different covers you can get for it too
Some people see this as a “baby luxury” item but the thing that makes this item so crucial is that it actually helps you AND your baby in the end. WIN-WIN! And at only $27.99, it isn’t breaking the bank. Let me explain..
If your baby is waking up in the middle of the night and needs to be changed…you want the process to be fast and over with. If he or she is coming from a warm and snuggle swaddle and then is being stripped down and patted with a cold wipe- they will likely be SUPER bothered. Using this in the night or when they are coming from a nap, it will allow the process to be fast and they won’t feel as jolted. They can go back to sleep without a big fuss…which is nice for the baby but even BETTER for you at 4AM
This swaddle is supposed to be the best in the game. Not only does it come with instructions on how to swaddle properly but it is supposed to keep them really secure. Babies- especially newborns- love to be wrapped up like little burritos but a lot of the swaddles on the market easily become undone. The Ollie Swaddle was developed by pediatric neuro-developmental psychologist, Dr. Kiti and once it was used on a few babies- dramatic differences started to happen! All babies slept better as the swaddle moved with the baby through the night and the pressure was comfortable yet snug! Sounds like a dream come true to me!
