Coconut Oil...

I found this article about coconut oil and I thought I would pass it on since it is so great for pregnancy/babies. After reading the whole list of uses, I'm thinking of just keeping a bottle in the nursery and using it instead of some of the other baby products that contain chemicals.  Plus, it's supposed to be great for stretch marks :smileyhappy:

Make sure you get the unrefined and organic kind. I guess the refined one doesn't have the same properties. I use it for everything too. It is amazing!

I never would have guessed all the uses. I'll have to pick some up, I'm sure I'd have no problems using it!

Yes! I have a jar in my cupboard and a small tupperware dish of it on the changing table. It works better then most diaper rash creams for Wyatt. It doesn't smell or taste like anything. It melts on your finger tips so it is super easy to apply to their tooshies. It is cloth diaper safe. I would highly reccomend it for baby.

I cook with coconut oil, I use it for just about everything now in place of canola or veggie oil (although I still use good old EVO too). I just had no idea it was handy for so many other things. Def keeping this list handy. Thx!
