Re: What's your favorite belly butter - and did it work?

That's a good story. Good for you, mama. I am in such pain right now but I am hoping it gets better later in the preg. DS is two this month though, and he's still very much a milk boy, so I'm not expecting him to wean (nor do I want him to). OMG I just noticed your daughter's nickname! Our girl name is Coco!

Oh, and I'm from Naperville, IL. I'll have to check out that book. I heart mothering mag, too. It just resonates with my mama soul.

It's hereditary whether or not you'll get stretch marks, the creams and oils do nothing more than moisturize.

Re: What's your favorite belly butter - and did it work?

I used palmers coco butter with my 2nd child.....but he was over 10 lbs plus I had polydramnious, and was measuring 48+ weeks when i delivered him...so there was no getting around the ones I have (on my belly). I haven't gotten any since then though and only had a few tiny ones with DD#1. (on my sides)

Until I can get my concoction whipped up, I'm using Clear Honey Hills' belly balm. Feels good!

Oddly enough, I do have stretch marks on my backside from the rapid growth during puberty! Can't imagine that it grew any faster than my belly during pregnancy, so, I do have to wonder whether the balms actually do help.

With my third, I got attacked. He was 9/8 at birth, and my body just kept stretching to accomodate.

Each time I used a combination of Cetaphil (about $6 a bottle) and cocoa butter.

After a few months, my SM fade, and you hardly notice them anymore. They did show up about a week ago, a little bit darker than they were before. I think it's because my belly is growing ever so slightly...
whaat brand cocoa butter did you use?
