This post is sponsored by Dockatot and I received a discount on one to review. All thoughts are my own. There is a $10 coupon at the bottom if you would like to purchase one. I would definitely recommend it.
I was a little hesitant to try this out because Zander was sleeping pretty well and I was unsure I wanted to change anything. After some discussion with my sister I decided to go ahead and give it a try.
We are in the midst of the 4 month sleep regression so I figured it couldn't hurt us at this point and maybe it would help him sleep longer stretches. My toddler really loved it too and wanted to use it for her. I do wish I would have found this sooner because I would of ordered her one in a heartbeat; but with her approaching her 3rd birthday I don't think she will get much use out of it now.
We used the Dockatot for about a week at night. I placed it in the pack n play at night and in his crib for naps during the day. To be honest it did not make much of a difference for Zander for his night sleep. He seemed to continue to wake up every 3 hours and would end up at the bottom of the Dockatot because he moves so much while he sleeps.
What I really liked about Dockatot is I could put it anywhere. The best place has been on the couch next to me when he won't let me put him down for bedtime. Bedtime has been a real struggle so it has been nice to have the Dockatot the past few weeks. I rock him and get him to sleep then I am able to put him in the Dockatot next to us on the couch while we watch a little tv before bed. Guess he just misses me and wants to be near me. I am ok with that :).
I do wish we would have gotten the Dockatot a little earlier in his life. I think that would have made a difference. I would definitely recommend it to a friend for their little one.
He sure looks cozy in the Dockatot. If you are thinking about buying one I would highly suggest it. Here is a coupon code for $10 off . Let me know what you think if you have one!
Edit: We have been using this for a few months now and it is amazing and Zander loves being so cozy in his dockatot! I highly suggest this product for any new mom! It is definitely a must have!
