    That they do! For those who haven’t heard us rabbit on about KiwiCo’s Panda Crates before (first of all, where have you been, second of all…) they are subscription boxes designed for 0-2 year olds that are filled with age appropriate toys and activities that all have a research-based approach to play!

    This episode of Beyond the Bump is brought to you by Palmer's:

    Soph, what is that smell?

    Sorry???!!!

    Haha no, that delicious smell that is reminding me of a yummy dessert!!

    Ohhhh (phew!) I have been lathering myself in Palmer’s Stretch Mark Lotion! It’s got Shea, Vitamin E, Natural Oils, Collagen, Elastic and Lutein… but I think it's the Cocoa Butter in it that you are smelling!!!

    Yes, that’s it! It’s making me feel nostalgic from my last pregnancy! It helped keep my growing skin moisturised too. I love that stuff.

    Are you going again!?

    Haha sadly, no, but for those that are pregnant or want to help prevent or treat stretch marks, the Palmer’s range also has a Massage Cream for more intensive treatment, a rich Tummy Butter to deeply treat stretch marks, Massage Oil which is more of a lightweight intensive treatment and even a Tummy Sheet Mask for stretch marks and this relieves tight, itchy skin!!

    Yes, this beautiful selection of products are clinically proven to improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of stretch marks, as well as improve skin texture and tone, in as little as 2-4 weeks!

    An even better idea is to hand one of the products to your partner or loved one and get them to massage it into your skin while you kick your feet up!
