THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Giveaway: Win a 4moms mamaRoo Infant Seat from PishPoshBaby!

I'm still impressed at how far baby products come in such a short period of time. Five years and two kids into this whole "parenting" thing, and the new products out now often trump what my wife and I had for our girls just a few years ago, and one example is the 4moms mamaRoo - an infant seat that blows away typical "bouncers" or "swings" by emulating the motions of real parents - Moms and Dads like YOU. Now, PishPoshBaby has teamed-up with my friends Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro to get one lucky reader hooked-up with a 4moms mamaRoo of their own - and they've invited THE ROCK FATHER to take part in spreading the word on this great opportunity to win a fantastic prize for your little "new release."

Lullaby Album of the Year? Lullaby Versions of FAITH NO MORE is Coming!

Over the past few years, I've covered a lot of lullaby tributes to popular artists here on THE ROCK FATHER, but tonight is really special as I'm getting to break the news on what is undoubtedly the lullaby album of the year - Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star: LULLABY VERSIONS OF FAITH NO MORE. Set for release on September 16th (pre-order on iTunes), the crew over at Roma Music Group have reworked a dozen FNM classics into nursery-friendly instrumental jams for baby.  This is an exceptionally exciting release for me, as it's my favorite band of all-time getting the lullaby treatment.

Introducing goumikids! Learn their Story, and Enter for a Chance to Win a Newborn Starter Kit!

I'm always intrigued by, and in some cases bummed that a lot of the new baby products weren't around when I could actually use them for my own girls. Even in the jumps between the release of our first daughter in 2009 and the sequel in 2012, there was so much cool stuff that didn't exist just three years prior, and here I sit with my youngest now two, and it's really set-in that my days of having a "baby" in my life are over. But, for those of you that are just entering your parenting adventure (or perhaps starting a new chapter in it), goumikids is a new player on the scene - a Portland-based company founded by two Moms (Lili Yeo and Linsey Ebuen), longtime friends on a mission to improve the lives of not only those around them - but Global residents as well.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Rock Star - LULLABY HITS OF 2014 Released!

When it comes to lullabies, there is no company more prolific than Roma Music Group and their TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE ROCK STAR series. They've released over 160 albums worth of baby-friendly jams for the nursery, each re-working a popular artist (or a collection of them) into "lush instrumental" versions. While we've just reached the halfway point of 2014, they've just released LULLABY HITS OF 2014 (Amazon | iTunes), which I'd sorta venture is probably "Volume 1," and by year's end a sequel will be released - just a hunch. But if you're looking for something a little different for your baby's sonic indulgence, check this out...

Bathtime is Bonding Time for Parents and Kids #AveenoDad #RockFathersDay

“THE ROCK FATHER is participating in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for AVEENO. He received product samples and a promotional item for participating.”

Bathtime is a special time for bonding between all parents and their children. Here at Rock Father HQ, truth be told - bathtime is usually my wife's time with the girls. Since I'm fortunate to be in a position where I get to spend nearly all day every day with the little ones, 8pm generally signals some time for my wife and The Rock Daughters to have some time to splash and play. But that hardly means that Bathtime isn't Daddy time as well. I've given many baths in these past five years, and often times it's when my wife is going to have a long day at work, and I want to get the girls bathed and ready for bed in advance of her arrival.
