of a settlement agreement
that would provide class members who have proof of purchase with $7 for every prenatal and postnatal product purchased and $2 for other products purchased (for a maximum award of $18 per household) and class members who do not have proof of purchase with $4 for every prenatal and postnatal product purchased and $1 for every other product purchased (for a maximum award of $9.50 per household).
