Iya has slept in her Dockatot Deluxe+ since we brought her home from the hospital! We’ve tried having her go without it quite a few times but she always feels most secure & sleeps best in it. It also kept her in place and on her back! The couple times we tried weening her off it, I’d find her all twisted up in her bedside crib bumping her head and just miserable. My big girl is growing out of the Deluxe+ now so the lovely folks at Dockatot have gifted her a beautiful new Grand! Originally, I thought this would be a great time to transition her from our room (in her babybay bedside bassinet) to her big girl crib with her new Grand in there to give her a familiar feel but I will not be going this route. There is too much space around the Grand in her crib (whereas her Deluxe+ fits perfectly in her bedside bassinet) but it’s made an incredible lounger! US regulations do not advise placing it in baby’s crib or bassinet anyways; but as always please please do your research & talk to your pediatrician about safe sleep.
Iya absolutely loves to hang out and play in her Grand, and looks absolutely darling in it! Once she fills it out a bit more I just know it’ll give her that cozy feeling her current Deluxe+ does and I’d love for her to be able to nap in it on the go — while we lounge outside or in the living room! The Grand is for ages 9 to 36 months so I have a feeling this will really come in handy during her toddler years when she’ll be transitioning to her big girl bed and needs that snuggly feeling. Babygirl, you’re growing up way too fast & its breaking my heart but you’re an even bigger joy with every passing day!
Okay we have to talk about a few new things from Dockatot. First, THESE NEW COVERS OMG! Iya is sitting in her La Vie en Rose and it’s what dreams are made of! It’s so so beautiful!! I have a hate-hate relationship with baby prints lol i hate the obnoxious colors and gross mosaic prints of typical baby items so finding things THIS aesthetically pleasing and CHIC is incredible. I leave it out and show it off proudly! We also have a Bananas for You cover which is equally gorgeous!! Banana leaves are trending so hard right now so this print is so perfect for my little California girl. I am actually so sad I don’t have these covers for her Deluxe+, waahh!!!
Another new stunner from Dockatot… have you SEEN their new sister brand, Aristot?! The MOST beautiful bassinets I have ever seen!!! They are releasing this fall and I.. just.. ugh I 100% need one for Iya’s little siblings (one day, ha!).
How do we feel about these gorgeous covers and bassinets not coming out sooner??? See below. LOL!
