Can I use my dock in a crib/cot, cradle, bassinet and/or play yard?
No. DockATot docks should not be used in a crib/cot, cradle, bassinet or play yard. Babies should be placed in a bare crib/cot without any additional bedding, blankets or pillows. There is a concern that an infant who can scoot or crawl out of the dock might get entrapped between the side of the crib/cot, cradle, bassinet or play yard and the dock.
There have been incidents involving other products where babies have suffocated after becoming entrapped between a soft product and the side of a crib/cot, cradle, bassinet or play yard, and incidents where babies have suffocated on soft bedding like blankets and comforters. This is why when it comes to an infant's sleep environment, bare is best. It is also why we warn that blankets and pillows should not be placed in a dock with a baby.
The Grand dock can be used in a toddler bed or big-kid bed, once the child is otherwise ready for such a sleep setting, and then only placed at a height that allows the child to safely descend on their own.
