    “I am trying to stick to products that are earth friendly and free of chemicals that can be harmful to children,” Laila previously wrote on her blog in the run up to Curtis’ birth. “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.”

    Laila announced her pregnancy in Essence magazine in March.
