Recreating the Comfortable Feeling of a Mother’s Womb
Life with a newborn is a round-the-clock adventure. Exhilarating as it is, being a parent also comes with challenges - specifically, attending to a fussy newborn at all hours of the day and night. Sometimes, they need will calm down with a soother or their favourite comfort plush toy. Other times, they just want to snuggle in a baby dock.
Designed with the quintessential oval shape with soft, padded sides, a baby nest offers your newborn a sense of familiarity and security by encircling and gently hugging them close. By recreating a womb-like experience, it will naturally trigger the calming reflex within your newborn, which makes them feel safe and relaxed.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dockatot Bags, Baby Nests and More
1. Are baby nests safe?
Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) is a valid concern that many parents have. Most SIDS cases are associated with sleep, and you may worry that baby docks may increase the risk for SIDS.
Studies have shown that a soft sleeping surface increases the risk of SIDS by five times. A soft surface is defined as the baby’s head sinking down one inch or more. As such, you need to ensure that the mattress is soft, but firm. Always place the dock on a firm, flat, stable surface from which the baby cannot fall from.
As another safety precaution, always ensure that blankets, pillows, or other suffocation hazards are kept outside of the dock. You should also regularly check that your baby is always resting on their backs, with their face not up against the side padding.
2. How do I clean my Dockatot baby nests?
You can machine wash the outer covers and inner tubes in warm water inside a garment bag and hang them to air dry. To avoid colour bleeding, be sure to immediately hang to dry once the cycle is finished and ensure that there are no folds or overlapping when drying. As for the pads, you can hand wash them in cold water and lay them flat to dry. For its inner sleeve, machine wash in cold water and air dry will do the trick! Be sure to not bleach or dry clean any part of your dock.
