For the last two weeks I’ve been very much enjoying slathering dollops of delicious Belly Butter all over my bump, courtesy of NakedPaint, a small NYC company that urges women to "honor thy body." And so, we obey (to greater or lesser degrees).This is exactly the kind of thing that makes a nice little shower gift accompaniment–something for baby, something for mama. It’s creamy and rich, and she’ll like the not-too-strong smell of cocoa butter, aloe, and a whit of jasmine. Plus, it contains emu oil. I mean, who in her right mind can resist a belly butter made with emu oil?
One more selling point: The stuff is paraben-free and it’s not tested on animals. Unless you count me at a brunch buffet these days. –Liz
