As of January 1, 2010 California law required all faucets, pipes, pipe fittings to be replaced with “lead free” alternatives.

Although your UltimateMama is a New Yorker, she took notice of this California law and recently purchased the Stainless Moen Low Lead Single Handel Pull Out Faucet called Extensa CA7560 which is at as one can never be too safe when it comes to their children!

Did you think it was better to stay at home with your child?  Were you afraid that going back to work would harm your child’s development?  Think again part-time working mothers.

A new study by Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, Wen-Jui Han, and Jane Waldfogel of the Teachers College and College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University shows that part-time working mothers and their children fare well!  Read the study entitled “FIRST-YEAR MATERNAL EMPLOYMENT AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT IN THE FIRST 7 YEARS” and go to work guilt-free!

So, you CAN have it ALL!
