Get Some Sleep with DockATot

This is a sponsored post. All opinions expressed are my own.


Ji was such an easy baby. She slept a lot during the day and slept through the night starting at seven weeks. My poor Dahlia wasn’t as fortunate the first few weeks because all she could take were five to ten-minute cat naps here and there.  She has a three-year-old big sister and our house isn’t exactly a mansion, so quiet time is very rare around here! I was sleepy and she was sleepy! Everyone kept telling me to sleep when she slept, but it wasn’t at all possible because she never slept…. Then, when she turned six weeks old, we received a DockATot to review and I was so excited! Would I finally get to take a nap?

I did!!! Dahlia took her first two-hour nap the first day we tried the DockATot.  I love it because it hugs the babies body and in my opinion mimics a mommy’s arms wrapped around them while they sleep. She slept so comfortably that I couldn’t believe it.

So, what is a DockATot?  It’s a multi-functional lounger, co-sleeper, and playtime lounger. You can use it for nap time, to place baby in the bed with you and take with you on the road. As a matter of fact, we are planning on taking it with us on our first overnight trip to visit the grandparents. And, it’s not only for infants. It comes in two different sizes. We have the Deluxe for babies 0-8 months, and it also comes in Grand for kids 9-36 months old.  The best part is that it is breathable so if the baby were to turn, they would have plenty of room to breath!

My stylish mamas will also be pleased to hear that it comes in different colors and patterns. We are big fans of pastels, so we chose this pretty teal design.

Nowadays, Dahlia sleeps through the night in her crib. It’s nice and quite at night but during the day when it’s hectic and loud we definitely bring out the DockATot for napping, lounging and tummy time.

A happy baby means a happy mama! I definitely recommend this baby product if you have trouble getting your baby to nap, if you are looking for a safe co-sleeper or if you are looking for a unique baby shower gift.

If you have any questions regarding the DockATot let me know! I’ll be more than happy to answer your questions.









Finn+Emma Organic Baby Swag Review

They say that when your second baby comes around you are not as picky or concerned as you were with the first. Wrong! I want the best for my new baby just as much as I did with my first. I want them both to have the healthiest food, environment, clothes and even toys! I’m convinced that everything that they come in contact with has effects on their well-being. So, when I was given the opportunity to review organic and eco safe baby swag from Finn + Emma, I was very excited to do so!

I chose a long sleeve body suit, footed pants, a wood teething rattle, and headband to review. Everything totaled $76 and it included shipping!

The body suit and footed pants are size 0-3 months so they don’t fit my 5-week old yet. Actually, the footed pants are really long and probably won’t fit her until she’s 6-9 months but I don’t mind. The clothes are super soft and will be perfect for her to wear in whatever season we are in once she fits into them.

And, how fitting is the teething rattle! Perfect for a baby that will be taking a lot of photos for the gram! All of their wood toys are made from untreated Indian hardwood, finished with vegetable seed wax, and filled with little beans.

They also have a line of muslin blankets in bright beautiful colors, wooden play gyms and corresponding play mats.

If you want the best for your baby and are health and eco conscious check out Finn+ Emma!





My new favorite baby product: JOHNSON’S® Baby new HEAD-TO-TOE™ bath time washes, creams and cleansing cloths

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of JOHNSON’S® Baby. The opinions and text are all mine.

I want to tell you all about one of my new favorite baby products! It’s the JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE™ Extra Moisturizing line with complementary HEAD-TO-TOE™ Baby Lotion, with vitamin E and baby oil and the new cleansing wipes.

I’m mentioning this because my little Ji started school just a little over a month ago, and our routine has changed since.  I pick her up after work and usually run to do a quick grocery store stop or other daily errands with her.  We then go home and get started on dinner and because we don’t spend all day together anymore, her daily bath is a vital part of our time together.  We play, splash and talk about her day at school.  Once her bath is over, she gets a massage while she drinks her nighttime cup of milk. Oh, the life!

I was scared that her new daily baths (I’m guilty of skipping some days when she wasn’t in school) were going to dry up her skin but the JOHNSON’S® Baby new HEAD-TO-TOE™ has actually made it softer. The baby wash and baby cream soften the skin more than the original HEAD-TO-TOE™ Wash and is a great fit for babies with sensitive skin.  She loves putting her arm to her nose to smell the freshness.

And, on days when we have to run and after-school errand, or weekends when we have been out and about all day, the JOHNSON’S® Baby new HEAD-TO-TOE™ cleansing cloths sure come in handy. After a full day of playing in a sandbox, painting, riding mini tricycles and even swimming, she’s not exactly fresh and clean anymore.  The wipe is thick and soft and perfect for in between baths and they smell SO good.  I know that I’m not the only adult that still uses JOHNSON’S products for themselves, so my fellow lifetime users will appreciate this fresh smell.
