TV’s top mom Challen Cates, lights up the small screen on Nickelodeon’s No. 1 live-action musical-comedy Big Time Rush as Jennifer Knight, mother to the hockey-playing, reluctant boy band member Kendall, and his younger sister Katie.
Laila Ali is 36 weeks along with her first child, Curtis Jr. The mom-to-be has been busy setting up Curtis’ eco-friendly nursery. She blogged about the overwhelming amount of products out there – and how she, “managed to find some items” that she really liked.
Of course the true test comes when my son actually arrives and I have a chance to put all this stuff to use! But I have done a lot of searching and have narrowed my choices down pretty well. Not to mention, I am very particular so I think I have some good picks!
Laila also talked about her decison to ‘go green’ in the nursery,
I am trying to stick to products that are earth friendly and free of chemicals that can be harmful to children. You know, I am trying to follow the advice I have learned in books such as Raising Baby Green. It is not always easy so I am taking it slow.
She went on to talk about the final details on her to-do list like finding “a good pediatrician” and researching cord-blood banking.

Mompreneur Rhonda Sparks is the creator of UV Skinz - sun protective swim shirts as seen right here on one of Marcia Cross’ twins. Rhonda created the company after her husband Darren, who was only 32-years-old, died from skin cancer. Amidst her grief, Rhonda researched skin cancer and learned that just one severe sunburn during a child’s first 15 years could double the chance of developing skin cancer as an adult.
Rhonda’s loss inspired her to create UV Skinz, sun protective swim shirts that carry a UPF rating of 50+, which block out over 98% of the sun’s harmful rays, protecting delicate skin from damaging sunburns. Sunscreen isn’t always enough, is often used incorrectly, and may be irritating to some skin types. UV Skinz use breathable fabrics that are silky soft to the touch and have no chemicals, irritating seams, or appliqués that may bother the skin.
