23 Mom and Baby Friendly Uses for Coconut Oil

Here are 23 Mom and Baby-Friendly Uses for Coconut Oil:

  1. Diaper rash cream that’s safe for cloth diapers (just apply to baby’s bottom!)

  2. Enrich and increase the milk supply for breastfeeding moms – consume 3 ½ tbs daily

  3. During pregnancy; helps prevent gestational diabetes, keeps kidneys functioning, keeps morning sickness in check, and protects mom from potentially threatening infections as well as boost her immunity, which is naturally weakened during pregnancy

  4. Helps shed baby weight because of the saturated fats and increases metabolic rate

  5. Nipple cream…because they can certainly take a beating while breastfeeding! Apply in-between nursing or pump sessions

  6. Helps mastitis – 4 tbs consumed daily provides an antibacterial effect because of acrylic acid

  7. Vaginal dryness, which is especially helpful during the postpartum period. Due to an increase in estrogen levels, women often suffer from vaginal dryness after delivery. Use internally and externally

  8. Massage oil for baby

  9. Massage oil for perineal massages

  10. Cradle Cap treatment – rub a tsp into baby’s scalp daily, brush with a fine baby brush. Okay to leave in or rinse out

  11. Barrier cream while meconium is still present – apply to baby’s bottom in-between diaper changes so that the meconium will wipe right off

  12. To help prevent stretchmarks

  13. Applied directly to the perineum to help aid in healing after delivery
