As we watch our bellies grow over the course of nine months, our excitement and love for our newest family member grows, too. Pregnancy can bring so much joy, but one thing that is often concerning to new moms-to-be are the stretch marks that come with it.

Of course, not all women get them, but many of us do. Some argue that those pesky baby stripes are hereditary, while others swear that they can be prevented with proper care. On the same hand, there are many woman who wear their stretch marks with pride, but it’s also not uncommon for moms to feel self-conscious about their post-baby bellies.

With that in mind, we’ve gathered ten great belly-moisturizing oils and creams that mom’s swear by. While we cannot guarantee that they will keep the stretch marks totally at bay (again, genetics!), you can at least help prevent them and keep that dry, itchy, stretching skin moisturized and feeling good. Plus, a little tummy rub never hurt anyone.
