Stretch Marks :(

I have a ton of stretch marks, I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations of lotions/products they have been using to fight off the itchyness! I seem to itch everywhere.

I have stretch marks from my belly down to below the pants line... and on my thighs.

Re: Stretch Marks :(

I also have a lot of stretch marks all over. I know they will never fully go away but have been successful at curving the itch (which has been everywhere!) by using an oil I bought at a local health store. It's called Mother's Special Blend. It was a bit expensive ($20 for 8oz) but has been very moisturizing. Just in case you need the website, it's www.mothersspecialblend.com. Hope this helps you!

Re: Stretch Marks :(

I've tried SEVERAL products throughout my pregnancy and like Burts Bee's Mamma Bee's Belly Butter (sold at Motherhood) the best. Its pretty thick so I use it at night and then use Palmer's bath and shower oil ($5/bottle-Walmart) after showers in the morning.
Stretch marks have held off till just this past week, and even now only around my belly button, so it might be working.

I'm not in this ddc but I had good luck using Palmer's oil with my last baby. Its like $10 at Walmart. Its an actual oil not lotion. I think its skin therapy oil I didn't get any stretch marks during my pregnancy except for like 4 around my belly button. And I went to 41 weeks and ds was 9.5lbs.

Re: Stretch Marks :(

I used coconut oil this pregnancy and it helped the itchiness a ton.
