Can I use my dock in a crib, bassinet and/or play yard?
No. DockATot docks should not be used in a crib, bassinet or play yard. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has cautioned that babies should be placed in a bare crib without any additional bedding, blankets or pillows. There is a concern that a young infant who can scoot or crawl out of the dock might get entrapped between the side of the crib, bassinet or play yard and the dock.
Furthermore, there have been incidents involving other products where babies have suffocated after becoming entrapped between a soft product and the side of a crib, bassinet or play yard. There have also been incidents where babies have suffocated on soft bedding like blankets and comforters. This is why we warn against using a dock in a contained area like a crib, bassinet or play yard, and we also warn that blankets and pillows should not be placed on a baby who is in a dock or underneath a baby in a dock. When it comes to an infant's resting environment, bare is best.
The Grand dock can be used in a toddler bed or big kid-sized bed, once the child is at least 9 months old, and then only placed at a height that allows the child to safely descend on his own. For important safety information about use of the Grand Dock in a toddler or other bed, click here.
