What called you to open your shop and how did it come to fruition? 

Mary Andersen opened the store in 2020. She had such joyful memories from when her little ones were little cheeky babies that she wanted to help customers build the perfect nursery to welcome their cheeky baby home and create their own joyful memories. 

The store has grown and changed a lot since then. Before joining Mary as her manager and subsequently becoming owner in January of 2023, I was a Montessori teacher for eight years. Education has always been an integral part of my life and being able to expand the store to help educate expecting parents on car seats and bringing in wooden toys that spark a child’s imagination utilized my skills and passion for learning and guiding.

What is the best way for customers to engage with your store?

To stay up to date, follow us on instagram at @cheeky_baby_boutique and/or on facebook at cheekybabyrome. We post new products, restocks, sales, and of course adorable pictures of Cheeky Babies. If customers have any questions, they may call or text us at 706-388-2099 or email us at hello@cheekybabyboutique.com.

What products or services do you specialize in? 

We really have a little bit of everything throughout the store. We have pajamas, baby blankets, scooters, bathtubs, strollers, carriers, feeding essentials, hats, toys, clothing from preemie up to 6 year, and so much more. 

Our favorite area in the store is definitely the gear showroom. We are the only store in the area where you can actually see car seats and strollers in person. We currently carry Nuna, UPPAbaby, Doona, Thule, Veer, Wonderfold, Britax, and new brands will be coming in before the end of the year. No one wants to make a large purchase without being able to actually put your hands on these products. And we are here to demo gear and show you the differences between them. All of the products we have are amazing, but it is our job to help you find the one that fits your family the best. Plus, we will assemble the stroller or wagon for you, so you can roll right out the door ready for your next adventure. 

We have two Child Passenger Safety Technicians on staff to help you find the safest car seat for your Cheeky Baby. When you purchase a car seat with us, we offer car seat installs. These car seat installs are all about educating you on the car seat. We make sure you know how to not only install the car seat correctly, but also how to adjust the car seat so it fits your Cheeky Baby. The safest car seat is always the one that is installed correctly and properly fits your little one.

What makes shopping with you unique for customers?  

Our customer service is second to none! We truly enjoy what we do and are eager to assist each of our customers with whatever they may need. We have an amazing selection of must-have and fun items for little ones. Plus, expecting parents can sign up for baby registries with us online or in-store. Having the baby registry online allows out of town friends and family to shop too! We offer free shipping over $49 and complimentary gift wrapping as well. We try to make the entire process as easy as possible for everyone.

What is your favorite product or service you offer?  

It is so hard to choose my favorite product. I think it may change daily. Right now I love the Danish brand Maileg. They make the most unique toys that spark little one’s imagination. It is a favorite of all ages, and I have the best time changing out the Maileg house in our display window every week.

What is the highest compliment a customer could give you after shopping at your store?

That we have made their life easier and they now feel like they are a part of the cheeky baby family! Shopping for babies and children can be so overwhelming, and we want to take some of the stress away. We are here to help customers figure out which stroller will work best for their family or help find outfits that will go together for family photos or even help to understand what a sleep sack is. For us to be a resource for the Cheeky Babies in our town and beyond is a great honor we cherish!
