My name is Leah Black and I am the founder and creator of Cheeks Ahoy.
Cheeks Ahoy was born shortly after our first child. We had planned all along to use cloth diapers for our precious baby bundle in order to do our part for the environment by reducing waste. We were so excited to be cloth diapering, but soon realized that we were still creating lots of extra waste from disposable baby wipes - all those wipes just used once and tossed in the garbage! Not to mention all of the plastic in which those wipes are packaged and the long ingredient list full of preservatives…
The amount of waste that we were still creating was alarming, and the ingredient list on those disposable baby wipes did not offer any comfort either.
So I sewed up my first batch of reusable wipes out of some old flannel bed sheets and created a gentle wipe solution for our baby's tender cheeks using three simple, natural ingredients. Not only did this eliminate the waste created from disposable wipes, we also found our reusable wipes and solution to be much more effective and versatile!
My other new mom friends soon noticed, and they wanted to get some too! Then their new mom friends wanted some… They became so popular that I was encouraged to sell these locally. Thus Cheeks Ahoy was born :)
