Weaning from the Dockatot

Since the DockATot is still a new product, finding resources on how to wean from one is kind of difficult. I scoured the Internet. It is a beloved baby product of mine, and I will not lie about how many times I filled a shopping cart with the next size up dreading this transition. I […]

Theories behind why my child doesn’t sleep through the night
