While I was happily accumulating all of the things I needed for my first born’s nursery. I was lucky enough to get my hands on high quality used items: a crib, a bassinet, but of course I needed the crib mattress, figuring this should be one thing that I purchase new. So I made the purchase after finding a well-priced mattress for about $70. When my son was actually born, my protective instincts took over and I found myself reading labels more closely and researching the products I purchased and this is when I stumbled upon the problem with everyday conventional crib mattresses.
It was scary, and I almost wished I did not know what I learned, because from that time on I could not place my child on the $70 crib mattress. I learned that crib mattresses are made of polyurethane foam, vinyl (PVC), phthalates (chemicals used soften certain plastics like Vinyl), chemical fire retardants, and even more disturbing chemicals like arsenic, yes arsenic!

The solution for me was to purchase an organic crib mattress. They seemed a little pricey when I first started to look into it, but when I learned about the high quality materials used, it was a “no-brainer” for me to make the purchase (and as soon as possible!) We didn’t want anything with wool, because I am allergic and thought my child could possibly be, and we then found a waterproof organic crib mattress from an American Company called Naturepedic. We chose a Naturepedic “No Compromise” Organic Cotton Classic 252 Coil mattress for my boy and could not believe the difference in quality when it first arrived. The conventional mattress allowed me to feel the springs inside easily and was flimsy, the new mattress was firm and the quality was apparent in every aspect of the mattress. The more I learned the happier I was with my purchase, and I wanted to educate as many people as possible about this great alternative to cheap, department-store crib mattresses. I could rest easy knowing my boys were not inhaling potentially toxic fumes. The waterproof cover, made of 100% food grade, completely non-toxic polyethylene plastic as also perfect for wiping up any messes that occurred, AND it is made right in the US in Ohio! All in all this amazing product allowed me to rest easy at night, every night, knowing that pure organic cotton was the only thing inside this mattress.

Looking back, Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker says she regrets going nude in the show’s season finale. “I knew it was going to be on the Internet: ‘Mary Louise shows off her big nipples,’ she says. The 44-year-old single mom to kids William and Caroline talks to More magazine about aging, dating, and the scene that got everybody talking.
On splitting with Billy Crudup while 7 months pregnant: “I’ve never commented on the situation, and I won’t because it’s not fair to my son. Who wins? No child can benefit in that situation. Your love for your child should eclipse any other feelings you have for another person.”
On dating as a single mom: “Some men are daunted by it, some are really attracted. I had someone ask, ‘Does this mean we can’t go out anytime we want?’ And I said, ‘Yes, that’s exactly what it means. It means you come fourth, ’cause it’s my kids, my job, my family.’ I don’t ever want to come first to anyone. It’s too much pressure.”
