my love for the dockatot grows

Friends,

You may recall that a few months ago I shared my love for the Deluxe DockATot. Now, I need to tell you about the Grand Dock.

My Littlest Farmer outgrew his Deluxe Dock around seven months old. I had intended to go without one after that, but life happened. He ended up with a cold on top of transitioning from being swaddled, so we decided it was just too much change at one time and the Grand Dock would be a constant we could control. 


The wonderful folks at DockATot graciously sent me a complimentary Grand Dock to try out and review, and for that, I am so thankful. Here are just a few reasons why I recommend the Grand Dock. 

My Littlest Farmer loves to snuggle up to the sides. He’s to the age now where I place him in the Dock on his back but he moves around to his comfort. I’ve found him on his side snuggled up next to the edge and even on his tummy. This doesn’t concern me because of the material the Dock is made from. It’s all certified breathable and non-heat harboring. 


Let’s go on vacation! Our summer vacay is right around the corner and I’m so excited about the ease of packing up the Dock and knowing my Littlest Farmer will have somewhere safe to sleep. This negates renting a crib or worrying about where he’ll nap and play in our rental. 


The Dock is so easy to wash. The first night in his Dock, he peed through his diaper and soaked the Dock. Ugh. But low and behold, it was super easy to take a part. I threw it in the wash according to the care instructions and put it back together by myself. It was completely like new in just a couple of hours. 

Like the Deluxe Dock, the Grand comes in many different designs and colors. We have the Pristine White and I’d like to get a backup soon. I’m eyeing the Mr. Mighetto in Night Night. Isn’t it beautiful?! 


The Deluxe Dock is for babies 0 to 8 months while the Grand Dock is for 9 to 36 month olds. If you had to choose between one or the other, I would recommend the Deluxe. I do love the Grand but it is quite a bit bigger. If we did not have a king size bed, my Farmer would have to relocate on the nights our Littlest Farmer joins us. I love having it and it’s been a life saver more times than I can count, but the Deluxe was perfect in every way. I’m sure it has a lot to do with the fact that my Littlest Farmer is mobile now whereas he wasn’t before... Eek!


Head over to the DockATot site and read all about the ins and outs of this awesome co-sleeper. Plus, take a look at the beautiful designs and decide which one works best for you and your family. You won’t regret it!

I would love to hear your thoughts. Do you have a Dock? Do you love it? If not, do you want one?

ja-vie's, the best flats for mom

Friends, I need to introduce you to the flat you've been waiting for. Ja-vie's are everything your feet have ever needed and everything your sense of style has ever wanted. Let me tell you how I know.


The folks at Ja-vie were kind enough to send me a pair of their Comfy Jelly Knit Flats in True Red. When I opened the box, the first word out of my mouth was GORGEOUS. Once I put them on my feet, the next word was BEAUTIFUL, followed shortly by how PERFECT they fit. My Farmer was wondering what in the world I was going on and on about to myself while I was trying them on.



Here's the facts. Ja-vie's have a jelly outsole which makes them lightweight, gives them dynamic flexibility, and skip resistant. I have three kids, I need all the help I can get staying upright. If it's not a child in my arms, it's all their stuff on top of all my stuff. They have a knit lining which is made of 100% soft, breathable cotton. When folks stop me and ask me about my Ja-vie's, I basically explain that it's a sock inside a jelly. You can't get more comfortable than that. Also, Ja-vie's have a leather insole that is soft and cushiony, and the arch support is superb. This is huge for me as I am basically archless, and most ballet flats I normally wear have zero support.


Important tidbits. Ja-vie's come in a ton of different style combinations - solids, stripes, prints, and more. I currently have three pair: True Red Flats, Black Cap/White Flats, and Navy/Pink Stripe Flats. I promise you, I receive at least two to three compliments on these flats every single time that I wear them. The sizing is European. I normally wear 9.5 US, so a 40 fits me perfectly. They feel a tad snug the first time or two that I wear them, but then they mold to my feet and do not feel snug at all. I love that when it rains, my flats aren't ruined. This also helps with smell. Other flats I've owned, cloth or leather, look pretty rough after a rainy day and smell worse too. Ja-vie's are machine washable - just remove the leather insole.


What people are saying.
Ja-vie's are the #1 shoe for stylish mothers and expecting mothers. The jelly exterior is 100% flexible so it molds to your foot and provides unparalleled  comfort while never sacrificing style. With half an inch cushion on the ball of the foot and arch, this flat provides the most cushioning and comfort of all ballet flats. Ja-vie's are water resistant and machine washable for life's little (and big) spills. Not to mention, they are blister proof, slip proof, with breathable cotton lining and a custom sole grip design. Live your best life with Ja-vie jelly ballet flats!

Now, let's get you a pair! Enter the giveaway below for your chance to win a pair of Ja-vie's of your choosing.
