About Rugby Baby
As a rugby player and fan for almost 20 years, I was excited by what the 2016 Olympics and rising 7's popularity has done for rugby in the US. Fans and participation-especially for women and youth-have exceeded expectations, and are the fastest growing sports in their categories.
However, I have seen very little improvement in clothing and accessory options the past few years for those players/fans who have children. When I had my first boy in 2011, we received a few rugby themed gifts, but they were either generic ("Peace, Love, Rugby") or just an adult design made smaller and put on a bib ("Give blood, play rugby"). Cute enough, but I kept wishing there were better options.
Once I got pregnant with my second in late 2015, I decided to do something about it. I want to capture the playfulness and dedication of the sport with the cuteness of the babies that will be wearing them!
That is the birth of Rugby Baby!
