stretch marks

I got some with my first dd but none on my belly, well this time around they've started to pop up again and some are in new places. I was wondering if anyone has some good narural remidies for stretch marks. I figure I put on lotion every night I might as well be using something of stretch marks too while I'm at it.

Coconut oil. I use a spoonfull in my bath and put it on in the shower everyday.

Coconut oil or coco butter.

Don't look at it as a bad thing. Honey, your a tiger mom earning her stripes. LOL.

Any lotion will work-it's the act of rubbing/stimulating the skin that helps improve stretch marks, not the product.

Coconut oil seems to be working way better this time around then any alternitive I have tried. Also sometimes I'll do a baking soda scrub on my stomach while I shower because I've heard that exfoliating is also important.
