Here To Stay
Not that we were going anywhere but we did think our marketing strategy would have to change asap. Our Nesting Pillow is know to be "Truly a pillow that is as natural & beautiful as breastfeeding itself."
quote from Hazelwood children ( xoxo)
Yet, with the we were headed down the road of pushing our pillows for your pup ( our kitty). It is also the best pregnancy body pillow and I use my Nesting Pillow to rest my weary head at the end of the day.What about your Lap Top? Do you use your Nesting Pillow for a Lap Tap top table while sitting comfortably on the couch? I do~
Well as of 2/8/09 we can take a deep *sigh *of relief and continue to market our pillows for our sweet mommas to use while nurturing their sweet babies!

The even better news: Quote from CPSIA guidlines-
"Manufacturers, importers, distributors, and retailers should also be aware that CPSC will:
Not impose Penalties against anyone for making, importing, distributing, or selling a children's product to the extent that it is made of certain natural materials (pdf), such as wood, cotton,wool, or certain metals and alloys which the Commission has recognized rarely, if ever, contain lead;

The reason we are safe under the existing CPSIA law is because we are 100% sure we are safe and lead free! We always have been!

I have spoken to the HSLDA ( Home School Legal Defense Association) they met with the CPSC on 2/4/09
Quote from the HSDLA Meeting with CPSC:
"Last Friday, the CPSC declared numerous changes in their regulations, including the following exemptions that correspond with requests made by HSLDA in our meeting with Commissioner Moore:
An exemption for certain natural materials such as wood, cotton, wool, and certain metals and alloys that rarely contain lead; An exemption for ordinary children's books printed after 1985;* An exemption for textiles, dyed or undyed (not including leather, vinyl, or PVC) and non-metallic thread and trim used in children's apparel and other fabric products, such as baby blankets."
*Watching and waiting: All though the HSLDA is happy with the meeting results, they continue to watch and wait as Senator DeMint proposses legislation to amend the CPSIA
**Proposed legislation to amend the CPSIA by Senator DeMint of South Carolina
If you have any questions about the HSLDA's involvment in the CPSIA law, please e-mail me at
I will be glad to clarify and answer any questions you might have. Please forward this e-mail to your manufacturers who are Organic so we can clear up some confusion that has been put out there on the internet. We thank you and appreciate that we all can work together to keep our children safe as well as our businesses!
