With Gratitude: A Letter from DockATot’s Founder Lisa Furuland + MEGA SALE

Dearest DockATot families,

With the excitement of reaching a new milestone at DockATot (500K followers on Instagram!), I thought this would be the perfect time to check in with you all and say thank you.

We officially launched DockATot in the US in July 2015 and, wow, what a ride this has been! I had no idea the amazing reception my product would receive. Turns out the thing new parents value the most is sleep!

I’m so thrilled that DockATot has helped so many families get the rest they so desperately deserve and need. When I created DockATot, my intention was for families to use it in all aspects of their lives, but particularly for co-sleeping. Sleeping together as a family has so many benefits. I wanted to allow for a safer and more comfortable way for families to co-sleep if they so choose. 

 

My family chose to co-sleep ever since my boys were babies. I found sleeping in the same bed as my children from a very early age helped to foster a comfort and intimacy that ultimately brought us even closer as a family. 

Lisa's boys--Troy and Ilias--still snoozing together after all this time.

Even today, my two boys (ages 10 and 12) still sleep together! They are the best of friends and I don't doubt that sharing a bed has something to do with that.

To see all of the amazing and beautiful stories of all of the DockATot families unfold on Instagram has been so emotionally thrilling for me. I’ve laughed, cried and mostly just been overwhelmed with gratitude to witness my product being enjoyed by countless parents and their beautiful children.

My vision of empowering new parents during those often difficult—and exhausting—first years of their little ones' lives remains the mission of DockATot. My hope is for DockATot products to continue to be woven into the fabric of motherhood. Thank you for sharing your stories and in turn, making those early years much more manageable for all new parents out there!
