Lotions & Creams?

I need some cream for my stretching belly. Any suggestions? I know nothing really prevents stretch marks but I just want something to give me lots of moisture, ease the stretching, prevent the itching. You know. The stuff I used last pregnancy was really good but I hated the smell.
Also, Jonah is about out of his pink baby lotion. Does anyone have something they love to slather on their baby any better? Let me know.

Just for fun.

I love the Burt's Bees Baby Bee lotion. It's not the most moisturizing if your little one has super-duper dry skin, but for normal skin it's great and it smells wonderful!!! It's a little pricey which is one down-side, but I'm still on the same bottle I bought when Ash was born and he's almost 9 months old! Oh, for the stretch marks, I used lavender-scented massage oil instead of stretch mark cream (too stinky). I bought it at a health food store and put it on at night before bed....loved it.

Bekah, I like your style girl! I too love the Burt's Bee stuff, my favorit for Moqui was the Apricot oil, soft smell, just lovely. There are soo many preservatives and anti stretch ????? stuff out there even in everyday lotion, some of it is questionable but all of it goes into your blood stream to some degree. Stick with the massage oil, avacado oil with some lavender 'EO' or roman chamomile. Any 'EO' other than the two mentioned above and quality citrus is not recommended for pregnant or nursing mom's. I love you, thanks for the tea and book by the way.

I haven't tried it yet, but I hear the baby Aveeno stuff is good. Can't wait to see you and your pooch.

I got nuthin'. Based on the road map that would get any GPS unit lost I am not the best person to get advice from.

I do have some bloggy bling for you though. Swing by and grab it.:)

palmer's cocoa butter formula, lotion for stretch marks. i got one stretch mark on my whole tummy. then, after you have the baby, get the same brand firming lotion. it's the best!

Hum...I just use whatever is lying around. My mother-in-law like this thick creamy lotion that she discovered at the UOP dental clinic. I'll have to ask her the name of it and send the info your way.
