5. DockATot Baby Lounger
The DockATot Baby Lounger gives parents a safe, snug, soothing spot for little ones to comfortably relax, play, and get in tummy time and sleep with a unique shape and design. DockATot is totally portable whether you're a jet-setting family or you just want to move the docking pod from room to room, it reduces risk of flat head syndrome (a result of a baby lying on one side of the head more than the other) and it makes tummy time more easy and way more fun by giving baby an ideal spot to prop them up and develop neck strength. As your baby grows older and is transitioning from a crib to a bed, the air-permeable bumpers act as bed rails and give little ones a snug sense of security in their big kid bed.
