itchy belly

My belly started itching today. Mostly around my stretchmarks that I got from my last child. I already put lotion on it, but I was wondering if any of you moms had any other tips?

  • I'm using that vitamin E oil that's right next to the stretch mark lotion in the store. It's a little greasy, kind of a lighter version of baby oil. Stops the itch, though.

  • I do not miss those days. My entire body itched and the only thing that helped me was an oatmeal bath with milk in it (they make oatmeal body wash which works good too) and baby oil after the bath.

  • After you get out of the shower before you dry off, rub your self down with baby oil while your still wet. It soaks in better that a way. Thats what I had to do with every pregnancy. I also used Aveno lotion, its the best!!!
