I'm crunchy....she's not. What on Earth do I buy her?

Admittedly, this is something I have encountered several times over the past few years. It's easy to get so caught up in your own way of living/mothering that you don't even realize what you're doing is not at all mainstream. If you consider yourself crunchy, maybe even just a *little* crunchy, baby showers for a more mainstream mama can leave you feeling stumped!

eLeMeNO-Pee has plenty of products for mamas even if they choose not to cloth diaper, baby wear, or nurse!



One of our most popular baby shower gift items are the certified organic bamboo swaddler blankets from the Austin Tye Dye Co. They measure 50x50inches and are super soft with plenty of stretch for a tight but breathable swaddle. And you can't beat how cute they are - so vibrant and fun!   We also offer a three pack of tye-dyed prefolds that are intended for use as burp cloths.




Another popular product to toss in the baby shower gift basket are  Chewbeads. Never heard of 'em? Oh, how I wish I'd had these when my daughter was a teething little one! She has always, always been a very "mouthy" type child and it would have been so nice to have cute but SAFE jewelry for her to gnaw on as she was working on cutting those teeth!

Chewbeads are non toxic, fashionable teething jewelry that mama can wear and baby can chew!  They are 100% silicone beads and contain no BPA, phthalates, PVC, cadmium, or lead.   They are also dishwasher safe! 

 
Our Colic Calm and Tummy Calm are also popular products with both mainstream and crunchy mamas who want to help their upset babies feel better! Both of these are perfect shower gifts as they are excellent to have *on hand* when the need arises for them. Late night trips to the store are never fun for anyone!






If you're looking for more of a pre-made bundle of products, The Honest Company has the perfect item for any mama-to-be as well! The baby arrival gift set includes all of the most beloved Honest Company infant products including adorable, eco-friendly disposable diapers and wipes, hand sanitizer, shampoo+body wash, lotion, healing balm, and a baby teether. 


eLeMeNO-Pee is so much more than "just" a cloth diapering store - we have products that accommodate families from every walk of life. These items are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to excellent products for mama and baby! Come in and see us weekdays from 9-5 and Saturday from 10-2 and let us assist you in picking the perfect items for the expecting mother in your life!
