15 Surprising Ways to Use Your DockATot Around the House

Updated: Jun 4

From movie time to yoga sessions, discover all of the amazing ways to use your DockATot around the house.


Having lived with the lockdowns and working from home culture, many parents are finding creative ways to fill the time. DIY projects, baking sessions (hence the yeast and flour shortages) and arts and crafts are some of the most popular activities families are partaking in. But you may not be aware of all the ways you can use your DockATot around the house, too. DockATot was created to be a multifunctional resource for busy parents.

"My DockATot is a wonderful tool," says California dad and lifestyle blogger Christophe Keyes. "The baby does not always want to be in her crib and sometimes wants to be amongst the madness. So while working on school work or cleaning up laying her in the DockATot where she is safe and snuggled on the couch keeps her in eye view, but not have to worry about her falling off into the abyss."

Keeping baby safe and snuggled are some of the best functions of a DockATot, but there are so many other ways to use both the grand and Deluxe+ sizes. 

These are some of the ways that mom of two Amber Baldwin loves to use her Grand and Deluxe+ DockATots:

  • Slumber Party: place the DockATot in front of the sofa, grab some snacks and turn on a favorite movie.

  • Imaginative Play: My girls have turned their DockATot into a pirate ship, a car, a boat. Give them ideas and watch their little minds take it away.

  • Lounge: Snuggle up and read a book.

  • Outdoor: Bring outside and watch the stars or have a picnic.

  • Transition to Bed: We just recently used ours to transition our baby to her own bed. She was scared of her bed for so long and would make a huge fuss every single day.

Plus, here are more ideas on how to use your DockATot around the house:

As a prop to keep your baby happy and close to mama while you exercise.

You can keep an eye on your baby while you do the dishes or cook in the kitchen.

Makes playtime so much more fun and engaging

DockATot may even bring siblings together!

One of the most popular uses for DockATot Deluxe+ is for tummy time. It's an ideal spot to let your little one spend time on their tummies because the rounded sides help to prop up your baby when placed under his or her arms. 

Don't forget to go outside for some fresh air--and vitamin D. The Cabana Kit keeps babies protected from the elements while in their dock. 

DockATot is available on Mumzworld, Mamas and Papas, Amazon, First Cry, Elli Junior, Five Little Ducks, Mom Store, Babyshop and more - across the Middle East
