Sweet Cheeks opened its doors in September of 2010, just a few months after our daughter, Maecy, was born. As a first time mother – and a longtime unabashed ‘tree-hugger’ – there were many products and items I was interested in learning about, but nowhere locally to explore. In that it took us several years to conceive, we were ‘the older’ parents – and our peers were sending their kids off to college as ours were being born. Therefore, no one to talk to about the choices I wanted to make for my new family. From working in natural foods…. And working with children with special needs and sensitivities… I knew there should be something more accessible to mothers and families in similar situations. Some things you can’t learn from You Tube – and to me, parenting and doing my best with this precious little life was worth investing in. We happened upon a work-able location in the heart of Wichita – and before we knew it – the adventure began!
Above all, our vision for Sweet Cheeks, is to build and nurture a community of families. We strive to support each other and our community in our desire to live gently on the Earth and to respect her resources. We work to be an advocate in the local community for gentle parenting, holistic living and the attachment parenting movement. In short, we provide natural solutions for modern families.
We are as selective about the products we select for our boutique as we are for our own family. We choose items that are North American made (USA & Canada) when possible – Small and Local Businesses are always preferred, and we happily support local artisans when possible. We choose washable and reusable items… and products using sustainable natural ingredients. We are a local resource for families interested in Modern Cloth Diapering, Babywearing, Breastfeeding, and Natural Parenting.
