Welcome to RockaBye Babe — Baby Gifts & Everyday Gear for Little Rock Stars
First, a little about myself:
For more than two decades, I've lived and breathed marketing, developing content and communications strategies for tech start-ups and Fortune 500 companies.
For fun, I sang lead for bands, including an SF-based 80s cover band and a Silicon Valley tech exec EDM band.
I love performing so much that I rocked out well into my pregnancy. Here I am on stage at the Little Kid's Rock Family Day event at Facebook in 2015. I was 7 months along.
I also like to go camping in the dessert, in a very special place called Black Rock City, where everyone is encouraged to express themselves. My husband and I have been going since 2009.
A passion for fun fashion
Singing in bands and going to Burning Man enabled me to indulge my creative side, and provided a great outlet for another love: designing and creating fun, funky clothing. I grew up designing and sewing clothes for my barbie dolls, snatching up fabric remnants from my mom and grandma. As I got better at pattern-making, I eventually learned to create one-of-a-kind pieces for myself.
But alas, a career as a fashion designer was not in the stars. After college and grad school, I worked for a series of companies in various industries — advertising, telecom, events/entertainment, fitness, healthcare, and health tech.
When I had my son in 2015, I decided I wanted out of the rat race so I could spend more time with him. I mean, who wouldn't want to spend more time with this little cutie:
That's Lawson Gray Dunham at ten days old. He is the inspiration for all of this.
The birth of RockaBye Babe:
RockaBye Babe was born out of my desire to find affordable fun, funky baby clothing and gear for our little one. While pastels and bunnies are cute, I wanted my son to wear something less shake & rattle and more rock & roll.
Babies grow out of their clothes so quickly that it didn't make sense to spend a whole lot of cash for each individual item. In addition, there was a limited selection of black onesies online and in stores (great for hiding oopsies), and baby bibs—while fully functional—were a little too boring for my taste.
Turns out, other moms had the same desire.
RockaBye Babe is all about fun, funky baby gifts and everyday gear—bandana bibs, binkies, rompers, baby tees, tutus, and more—curated and crafted with care for your little rock stars. Not only do we offer limited edition and one-of-a-kind items, we also partner with artisans and top brands to offer your little ones an amazing selection. Best of all, we have several items that are under $10!
We invite you to browse our store and to come back often! We're always adding new items so you never know what you'll find with each visit.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy shopping!
