How to prevent stretch marks
There isn't any way to prevent stretch marks. However, you can help them be less visible by keeping your skin moisturized and enriched with vitamin E. Most people use cocoa butter or shea butter.
I have them but they have faded a lot over time into just silvery lines that aren't super noticeable. I've always been big on moisturizing so I didn't do anything specific to prevent them. Just regular lotion.

obsessed with babywearing, cloth diapering, and breastfeeding (but not judgmental about those that aren't). I'm a SAHM that works. Loves cupcakes, kittens, and glitter; hates spiders, housework and pessimism.
