I am so in love with this print. I wish someone would order bedding out of it! Until then I will just have to enjoy the many MANY blanket orders that come in with this very popular print. Its fun to see how people decide to pair it together with the minky :) Get your own here.
"Hi I'm Kari - working mom of 2. I nursed my son until he was 1 and I'm on my way to nursing my daughter for the same (she's 4 months old). I started off using disposable nursing pads until I found cotton reusable ones. They were good but they stuck to me unless I was using lanolin and I couldn't wear them overnight. I'm a rockerbyebaby fan and when I saw their version I had to try. Oh how I wish I found these sooner! They barely stick even without lanolin, I can wear them overnight, and the more I wash them the better they get! When I first saw them I thought these are too big but they fit discretely in my bra and are so more fashionable then the boring beige cotton ones. I now become bummed out when they are in the wash! Give them a try you won't regret it."
With my new found love of Tula's - I jumped into making suck pads. I literally HATE that they are called Suck Pads... so if anyone else has a clever name for them, feel free to share it with me. If you're not sure about what Im describing, here ya go. They are basically covers that wrap around your SSC straps. Teething babies tend to suck and chew here, sometimes even chomping a hole right through the strap. In other cases its just lots of slobber and makes it easier to just toss these in the wash instead of washing the whole carrier. They have a print on one side, minky on the other, batting inside ribbons at the bottom for texture and sensory play, and full velcro strips to keep them closed completely (snaps often pop open, I think just to annoy me ;)
Here are a few examples of recent ones we've made...

I LOVE what I do - no doubt. But as RockerByeBaby has grown it became less what I want to make and/or am inspired to make and more about what custom orders come in. Which is totally fine - however, I have so much fun when I get to do stuff like this below. My cousin is having her second child soon, a baby boy! She knew she wanted that nice bold lime shade, gray, white & navy... lots of prints mixed in... and then outside of that I had the freedom to do whatever I wanted. I found a bunch of prints to go together well... and just started piecing them together.
I had so much fun making it... in the end there were a couple sheets, a small blanket for her mini crib, a bigger quilted stroller size blanket, 2 changing pad covers, 12 booger bashers, 2 pacifier clips, and a boppy cover. So in the future - if you ever want to make me SUPER happy... shoot me a couple ideas/themes/colors and then just let me go wild with it. It will be lots of fun for me and an awesome surprise for you!
They're HERE! They're HERE!
So many of you have been asking and now we made it happen - We teamed up with the mama behind Wee Essentials to bring to the BEST handmade nursing pads out there with a RockerByeBaby twist. When I was nursing these were my lifesaver. I had tons of styles and these were by far my favorite... so why mess with perfection?! After nursing a few babies now, I would recommend that you have 2-3 pairs per day so you can change them as needed.
These are all exclusive prints available only to us and all in limited runs - some may be brought back - some may not!! Some of these are SUPER rare prints I have been holding on to for the perfect project... so if you see one you MUST HAVE don't wait too long!
"The pads in this listing are approximately 5" in diameter to fit the majority of cup sizes and are made with an rayon-from-bamboo and organic cotton core to pull moisture away and a breathable, waterproof layer of PUL. Topped with a printed flannel. These are great for day or night!"
