Whether you are expecting or experienced, these days moms get the deluxe treatment. The Mama Mio collection helps battle nine months of stretch and strain on your skin by addressing such issues as skin elasticity, parched skin, and tensed and tired muscles. Developed in London, it’s no surprise that British celebrity moms Stella McCartney and Victoria Beckham are fans. With pregnancy comes cravings, so sate your sweet tooth with the yummy new Burstin’ Chocolate flavor from Bellybar. All-natural Bellybars offer 100 mg of DHA omega-3’s, which serves as the foundation for brain, eye, and nervous system in infants. Once the bundle of joy arrives, try Noodle & Boo, head-to-toe luxe skincare products for your new baby (you’ll love them, too) made with an exclusive ingredient called crème douce, or sweet cream. Health-conscious moms who want the best for their babes go crazy for California Baby, the original, all-natural skincare line for babies and children that is now available at Target. Of course you need a stylish tote to carry all your newfound products. Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bags are a must for any fashion-conscious mom, and Cake is the name of the newest carryall, with a monogrammed antique brass wipe case, pockets for everything, a zip-out changing pad, and four different strap and carrying options.
