My Real Experience with Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy

After my third pregnancy in five years (hey, I work fast), I gave Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy a try. As I write this, I can hear my youngest (now just 3 months) cooing in the living room. That sound is compounded by the 17 month old playing ABC games on an iPad nearby and a 5 year old practicing his karate moves. Lightly put- there’s simply too much going on in my home and my life to inve... More...

2nd Trimester Craving of the Day: Sweet Minty Belly Oil

When I was pregnant with my son, I was a chipper 24 year old that had resilient-as-all-hell skin that could stand up to a 55 pound weight gain (that’s right, I was a house… and I didn’t have the wild Captain Crunch diet of Jessica Simpson, either). This time around I’m a few years older and a wee bit wiser- I’ve got to oil my thorax up to avoid all the wild stretch mark... More...

Mustela Wins My Heart Again with 9 Months Collection

When my now three and a half year old son was born I was a clueless mess. How do I feed him? How do I bathe him? What’s safe to put on his skin? Almost every pediatrician and nurse in the maternity ward at the hospital told me the same thing: pick up some Mustela and you’ll be all set. They were right, and it’s always been in the back of my head that I’d return to the tried and ... More...

I’m at week 18 with baby number 2, and although it’s only been 4 years since I had my son swimming around my stomach, it sort of feels like it was decades ago. How could I forget so much in so little time? So, for all of you new and repeat moms, I’ve put together my list of things I wish I remembered. 1. Cravings have nothing to do with foods you actually like. In fact, I find myse... More...

The Obscene Way to Celebrate Nurse’s Week

Nurse’s Week is a great excuse for some rectal thermometer cake?

Nurses are very special people.  They care for us, the heal us, and apparently they don’t mind the occasional rectal thermometer cake. Now we know exactly what goes on in the hospital break room.  These are definitely some of the most creative cakes we’ve ever seen (although they don’t leave much appetite to speak of). Stretch marks and all! Mmmm… buttercream intestines. Yup, that... More...

When I see this picture I think “here’s a father that really knows how to protect his children.”  He’s all like “yea shes got stretch marks, but if you make a comment about them I’ll blow your friggin’ head off!!”  Best cure for stretch marks?  Fear. My guess is that those are black leather gloves in the back of his pants, not the holster.  Noth... More...

Things I love, as you may have noted by now, are gentle lotions and potions that are plant-based, natural, paraben-free, and all that good stuff.  I was delighted to try Honeydew Skincare’s line this past weekend.
