About Rockinbaby

Hello and welcome to Rockinbaby.

My name is Tori Carlaw and I’m a mother to a beautiful little girl called Isabella, a smart, energetic (and not to mention cheeky) three year old who keeps our family constantly on our toes!

Why Did We Create Rockinbaby?

Rockinbaby was created by myself and my husband Nick Carlaw in 2020 because we wanted to provide pregnant women, parents and carers of babies, infants and toddlers with a free, high-quality resource that you can trust.

Since then our website has rapidly expanded, and Rockinbaby now features hundreds of articles that span a wide range of pregnancy, baby and toddler related topics including:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Sleep
  • Baby Food
  • Baby Clothes
  • Health & Safety
  • Learning & Development
  • Travelling With Babies
  • Baby & Toddler Entertainment
  • The Best Nicknames, Middle Names and Baby Names

Our mission at Rockinbaby is to provide you with trusted information to help guide you during every step of your pregnancy and parenting journey.

It is no secret how hard parenting can be – there are times when it feels like being a parent is the hardest job in the world, and as a result it’s easy to feel confused, stressed and overwhelmed.

That’s why we created this website to help you – our readers – make the most informed pregnancy and parenting decisions.

We want to help you find the answers you need to get through any parenting challenges you may be facing, however big or small.

Why Should You Read Rockinbaby?

Rockinbaby makes it easier for parents like you to gather reliable, trust-worthy information on a range of pregnancy, baby and child related topics.

Every single article and all content is written and fact-checked by myself or my husband Nick to ensure our quality standards remain extremely high.

We are knowledgeable and passionate about pregnancy and baby topics, and strive to write completely unbiased, research-backed and evidence-based articles that are simple and easy to understand, in the hope you can make the best and most informed decisions for yourself and your baby or child.

Editorial Policy

Accuracy, expertise, dependability, inclusivity and empathy are five guiding principles we use to help ensure every article on Rockinbaby meets our strict editorial standards.

We also fact-check each article thoroughly before that anything is published, because we want you to be able to trust and get genuine value from everything you read on this site.

Each article we publish involves the same process of deep research, fact-checking and impartiality, and we frequently review and update articles to show you only the most up-to-date information.

Our content is never influenced by our advertisers or any conflicts of interest, and we make sure we only source, quote, and cite the most reliable and current references.

Written By Humans, Never AI

At Rockinbaby, we are committed to providing only the highest quality content that has been created by a team of human writers and editors.

Nothing is more important than you and your child’s health, and this is why humans do and always will write every single piece of content on this website.

It is, and always will be, against our guidelines to publish AI generated content through tools such as ChatGPT, because AI (Artificial Intelligence) cannot be relied upon or trusted to provide accurate information, advice or recommendations.

Where Does Our Information Come From?

Our articles are based not only on our experience as parents, but also on extensive research, facts, interviews and information provided by trusted US and international pediatricians, doctors, healthcare workers, nutritionists, teachers, sleep experts and other medical and childcare professionals, as well as US government associations including the AAP, CDC, NHS and USDA.

When we are not looking after our child or working as professionals, our team work tirelessly to research topics, expand our library of articles and to update existing ones, so we can continue to provide you with the best possible advice and information.

The journey to end all journey, pregnancy is an incredibly rewarding experience, but that’s not to say it’s without its ups and downs.

Whether it’s foods and activities you should avoid, to baby showers and preparing for midwife appointments, we have probably covered it.

Breastfeeding & Food

Breast feeding, formula feeding and weaning are topics with a lot of do’s, don’t and misconceptions, so our articles are here to cut through the noise and provide you with the facts and information you need to help get your baby off to the best possible start.


One of the hardest parts of being a new parent is dealing with a lack of sleep and establishing a consistent sleep routine for your baby.

We’re here to help you find the information you need, so your baby can sleep safely and comfortably.

Because if your baby sleeps well, so will mom and dad!


Children develop extremely quickly, and often what was believed to be correct only a few years ago can quickly become out of date thanks to advances in science and technology.

We offer advice and information on a range of topics including whether or not you really need popular baby and toddler accessories, developmental leaps, education, entertainment and other vital information around common child-raising queries.

Health & Safety

We understand that nothing, and we mean nothing, is more important than you or your child’s safety.

Avoidable and unnecessary risks simply aren’t worth taking, which is why we’ve written dozens of child-safety related articles to help you keep your family safe.


Rockinbaby covers various topics and frequently asked questions on baby and children’s clothing, which anyone interested in buying, gifting or cleaning children’s clothing is sure to want to know.

Names & Nicknames

If you’re looking for a beautiful first name or middle name for your baby, a cute nickname for another member of your family, or even a cool nickname for a teacher or favorite soft toy then you’ve come to the right place, because Rockinbaby has a large number of high-quality articles from which to take inspiration.
