eLeMeNO-Pee has not one, but TWO, new brands to announce!

You thought we were just going to announce one brand today but instead we're announcing two!

The first is Ju*Ju*Be bags and accessories! This has been one of my favorite "mommy indulgences" for a long time. There are no other bags like it on the market.  I used two Ju*Ju*Be bags while my daughter was still in diapers and they still look new! Ju*Ju*Be is notorious for their awesome print selection along with all the nifty features that come with each and every bag.

Some of their most awesome features:
1. Machine washable. Yes, that’s right…machine washable!
2. Most bags have attachments for Be Connected™ stroller clip system (I still use this 4.5 years later to clip my purses or shopping bags on!)
3. Tons of smart pockets.
4. Crumb Drains™…bye-bye mess!
5. Metal feet on selected bags.
6. 3M™ Thinsulate™ in the insulated bottle pockets…climate controlled.
7. Memory foam in shoulder pads… comfy!
8. Teflon® fabric protector…helps repel stains.
9. Custom, all-metal hardware…no one else has it. And we don’t use any of that cheap plastic stuff.
10. Agion®-protected linings…natural antimicrobial treatment inhibits and reduces the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold, and mildew.
11. Light-colored linings…you can actually see what’s inside; it’s not just a big black hole in there.  (You don't realize how helpful this is until you've used it!!)
12. Self-healing coil zippers.
13. Ergonomically curved straps make carrying our bags oh-so-comfy!
14. Tons of details, from jewels in the zipper pulls to stars on the labels.
15. Memory foam changing pads…nice for baby.
16. Mommy pockets with lots of organization.
17. PVC- and lead-free!

Once you go Ju*Ju*Be, you don't go back! :) We love these bags and are sure you will, too!

The next new brand in our lineup is the  AFG line of Baby Furniture!

We are carrying the full range of furniture -- the cribs, mattresses, changing tables, and dressers. You name it, we carry it! We are also running an introductory special on the Jordana Lia crib. You get to choose the offer -- either $150 OFF or get a free 96 coil mattress for FREE *along* with free shipping! They have so many amazing convertible cribs that will last your child from infancy through their entire childhood. I love this feature in cribs!

A cool fact about AFG Baby Furniture  is that they contribute a portion of all sales to various organizations including children in need and sustainable forest efforts. They have been in business since 1986!

We are so excited to be expanding our product lines and bringing more fun things to the table for each and every eLeMeNO-Pee customer. We strive to offer the best of the best and we think both of these brands fit the bill perfectly!

Stay tuned in the coming weeks for a couple more exciting product launches coming just around the corner!

Rep Spotlight: Tara Cullum

Welcome to this month's eLeMeNO-Pee Representative Spotlight! This month, we are featuring the lovely Tara Cullum, our Paris, Texas rep!

Tara is a dental hygienist 4 days a week in Oklahoma, commuting 120 miles a day from Texas. She met her husband   2 days before her 17th birthday but waited 7 years to get married. They had their first baby right after their 3rd wedding anniversary in 2009. Tara and her husband had a precious baby girl named Eden, whom they started cloth diapering at 7 months. She is now 4 years old and makes them laugh daily with her antics. Their son, Zane, whom they started cloth diapering right away, is 10 months old and walking. She is busy planning his first birthday party!
Time for a little Q&A!

How did you get introduced to cloth diapering? Mommy message boards while pregnant with my first but I couldn't talk my husband into for the first 6 months

What was the first cloth diaper you ever saw in person? A WAHM cover from eBay that I used with Gerber prefolds. I thought it was awesome at the time but now I have more experience I see how poorly made it was. I wish I had someone to teach me and show me what good cloth diapers were before I ordered the first ones.

How did you find eLeMeNO-Pee? I was searching for a company that would allow me to sell cloth diapers from home.

What is your favorite part of being a rep? I've sold Avon, Mary Kay and Home Interiors in the past. I loved direct selling but was never passionate about the product. I am very passionate about cloth diapers and the other products that we sell. I love being able to help other families become more "crunchy".

What is your current favorite cloth diaper? I'm loving my Bumgenius 4.0s right now.  I love the trim fit on my tall skinny baby.

What are your hopes and dreams for your family for the future? We are hoping for #3 in the next few years. Other than that I just want to raise happy healthy considerate children.

What is the most popular item that you sell via eLeMeNO-Pee? Probably the Bumgenius 4.0s since I recommend them a lot.

What is your #1 piece of advice for a family considering making the switch to cloth? Just go for it! Its a lot easier than it seems. Once you actually get started, you'll wonder why you waited so long and wish you'd started sooner.

Now that it's starting to warm up, what are you most looking forward to this coming Spring/Summer? Walks outdoors wearing my sweet boy and watching my daughter play.

What is something most people would be surprised to learn about you? I don't know how surprising it is once you've seen how outgoing I can be but considering my current career is a dental hygienist/cloth diaper rep most people are surprised to find out that I started college as a theater major.

Skeeters and bites. Wait. What does eLeMeNO-Pee have to do with mosquitos and bug bites?

It's that time of year again! Can you believe the grass is already greening up, the birds are chirping outside the windowsill, and the temperatures are climbing? I LOVE it! Nothing feels more refreshing than the dawn of a new Spring and eLeMeNO-Pee has a few products that will help start the warmer-season off right!

First off, one of our best sellers of the Spring/Summer are our awesome mosquito bands, called Mosquitno BandZzz. They come in both adult and child sizing and they are a unique and innovative way to keep those pesky little critters at bay.

They are made of silicone and are infused with citronella spray. Each bracelet lasts up to 6 days (up to 150 hours of exposure). They come in sealed packaging to preserve the integrity of the product and they come in various colors. They are waterproof, non-toxic and DEET-free.

Since we are now retailers for the full line of The Honest Company products, we also sell their well-reviewed bug spray!  This product is formulated from non-toxic, non-synthetic, non-petroleum based ingredients and contains pure, organic essential oils  to keep the skeeters at bay. This product is lab tested for efficacy in deterring mosquitoes and flies for up to four hours per application. It is also DEET-free and has a yummy aroma comprised of rosemary, wintergreen, and citronella.

In the event that you do find yourself outdoors without the protection of either of these products, eLeMeNO-Pee also carries a couple of products suitable for helping alleviate the awful itchiness and irritation that comes along with the bug bites.

The Earth Mama Angel Baby Butt Balm works wonders:

As well as the hosie naturals teething cheek balm (I know, sounds crazy, but it works every time!)

Now that you know a few of our all-natural, effective tricks for the Spring/Summer, you will be all set! eLeMeNO-Pee is wishing you a happy, healthy, bug-bite free Spring and Summer! :)
