I was just wondering if any of you moms would have any advice for a mother that is sealing with stretch marks and itchy skin on my stomach. Thanks

if you can't afford all of those fancy creams and stuff go to walmart, or what ever kind of store you have where you live, and get some jergens ultra healing lotion, if you put it on your belly or where ever is really dry or has stretch marks twice a day, once when you wak up and before you go to bed it helps lighten the stretch marks, every one is different so try it and if you dont see any results then you still have a good lotion to use

Like my sister says remember to "Lube up" everyday. I also use Palmers lotion..apply it very generously everyday a couple times a day if desired. The itchy skin is usually dry skin. Also vitamin E oil, you can Buy it in the vitamin / health care dept. My doctor says it is OK. I asked afraid the baby would OD on vitamin E...don't laugh.haha! Don't forget other parts of your body...arms, sides of breasts....wherever else your skin might stretch.

Cocoa butter, before and after pregnancy. Be careful what you try while pregnant to get rid of stretch marks, as you don't want to rub something on that could hurt the baby. I also used Aloe vera if it got REALLY itchy. Be careful about some lotions, they can actually dry out the skin, if there is Alcohol in it, it won't help.

I use cocoa butter on my stretch marks. They never disappear, but they will fade. It also helps with the itching. The brand I use is Palmers. But be sure to use it everyday for the best results.

I used Bio oil... it was pleasant and Even though I got pretty bad stretch marks they don't show very much now.
