a good way to keep stetch marks away is to keep your belly mostrized. it doesn't matter what kind of lotion just keep it mostrized.

Yeah that is if you have good genetics, I could live in a tub full of lotion or cocoa butter and still get them.  I have bad genetics for it.

Yea cause I didn't use lotion very much with my first pregnancy and i got to 200lbs and no stretch marks. Just depends on the person.

I have good genetics, and used every stretch mark cream on the market (at the same time lol) daily and still got strecth marks. The're not deep, but I'm covered! And I only gained 40 lbs (I was under weight to begin with).
