The vision of DockATot is simple – to give parents a product that combines luxury with practicality in every sense. As with any luxury item, the price will inevitably reflect the quality of the end result. Ultimately, what every parent wants to know before buying one themselves is – is a DockATot worth it?

Our carefully designed docks are loved by parents throughout the world for the peace and comfort they bring to their babies, helping hard-working parents to care for and nourish their little ones in the midst of everyday life.

With so many baby products on the market made of cheap, garish materials, many parents are discouraged to see their beautiful homes overtaken by tasteless paraphernalia. But with a DockATot Deluxe+ dock you never need compromise on style in order to keep your baby safe and comfortable.

Every DockATot Deluxe+ dock is crafted to the highest quality standards, from the intelligent Swedish design to the carefully sourced materials and components. The fabrics are woven and printed in Portugal and each item is hand-stitched and hand sewn in a picturesque European town. It is a labour of love from beginning to end, with all of the attention to detail that you’d want for your baby.

The docks are breathable and temperature controlling, designed with safety and comfort in mind at every step. Find out more about the careful process of designing and making a DockATot dock in our article, "Behind The Seams: The Making Of A DockATot Dock".
