Two 'mumpreneurs', Amy and Julie, started Cheeky Chompers while on maternity leave with their first children.
The Neckerchew was born after lots of catch-ups with friends – where countless dropped, dirty and lost teethers were lost. Not to mention a gaggle of dribbling babies!
Sometimes the simplest ideas really are the best: if the teether won’t stay put, why not attach it to the baby?
Over nine months of long nights that little thought was put into action. The bibs were designed, best fabrics and materials sourced, and everything tested for safety and quality – and a brilliant UK manufacturer found.
After all that, Neckerchew finally hit the shelves in 2013.
Since then, the product range has expanded to include a variety of teething aids, blankets and comforters, including the Comfortchew (launched in 2014).
