Must Have Mustela!

November 3, 2008


Young mothers, one of the dumbest things I did when I was a young, expectant mother is I didn’t listen to the good advice of the older ladies. I’m not talking about old wives’ tales, I’m taking about wise advice from ladies who had been there. Oh boy do I regret not taking pre-natal vitamins! I became severely anemic after the birth of my second baby. I should have taken those iron pills… and I should have taken the calcium and the other things I hated. Because now, 18, 19 years later, I’m regretting not having taken care of myself more than I did. When you’re 21, 22, you feel invincible. Ah, but those decades pile on quickly.

Here’s some more advice– take care of your skin!! One woman had told me about the beneficial products of skin moisturizing to prevent stretch marks. I pooh-poohed her advice. And wound up with stretch marks everywhere except on my nose! Ugh I hate the stretch marks. There’s a nice product from Mustela, called “Stretch Marks Intensive Action.” It’s for you gals with the whopper babies. My son weighed in at 10.5 pounds, and YEAH I could have used some of that intensive action!

Besides great products for moms and babies, Mustela also has a cute little “Parent’s Corner” filled with tips, advice, tidbits, and assorted new parent stuff. So take my advice- don’t be a fuddy-duddy and refuse to listen to good advice. Take care of yourself now and your body will thank you later!

    I just this minute joined entrecard. I was looking for blogs that I thought would fall into a similar category and there you were. Now all I have to do is figure out how to “drop” on you. It seems the more I learn, the less I know.
