First Diary Entry

Hello all! This is the first entry our diary. We’ll be updating you with the progress of Cheeky Chompers and our first product, the Neckerchew. Here we go…

Our fantastic photo shoot

Never work with children and animals they say, but after a photo shoot today with nine small children ranging in age from 4 months to 2 years, we seem to have cracked it – who says bribery with chocolate buttons was unethical? Kidding of course! Add to that 16 parents, tech equipment, photographer, videographer and two very excited mumtrepreuners and you have a recipe for a very interesting day!

As hectic as it was, it was so exciting to see such a range of babies all looking great in our range of Neckerchew dribble bibs and naturally picking up the teething end and chewing vigorously. We were the proud mums of two budding models who loved the posing and whos only tears were when the cameras were put away.

A moment we won’t forget – after 9 months developing the neckerchew concept, from design, working out the best fabric to use to ensure it was soft and super absorbant, sourcing the best quality fabric with patterns suitable for children and researching, finding, designing and manufacturing the best chewable teething end that was soft and pliable with great bite. This journey has also taken us to patent attorneys, product lawyers, trading standards advisors, safety tesing labs and much more. The final step in the journey was finding our key manufacturing partner – it was so important to us that it was based in the UK, which helps ensure we can be involved every step of the way. It was a huge moment for us standing in the factory seeing the machinist carefully creating each precious bib by hand and witnessing our dream becoming a reality – a really proud moment and we think they look amazing. We almost wanted to wear one home. The journey has really begun now!

Here we go!

We’ll be keeping you up to date with our progress and our thoughts on being Mums and entrepreneurs.
