yup, I did, I'd give her some to eat while I lathered her up love that stuff. but I don't put lotion on after every bath, I don't think it's necessary especially when using gentle natural soaps that don't strip the body of it's natural oils.

I just bought some yesterday to add to my morning hot cereal. My daughter has really dry skin in the winter though so maybe I will try putting some on her skin.

We use it for everything. In our hair, on DD eczema, as lotion, in food, a butter replacement, on the pets dry skin, even as treats for the pets. It's amazing!!

I should try some for my eczema. Most things don't help much.

If this little one has eczema like my last two I will definitely try coconut oil! With my youngest the pediatrician recommended crisco, he told me to rub it on his broken out areas. It was the craziest suggestion I had ever heard. I did ask the Pediatrician "Do I pop him in the oven on 350 after?" LOL! It did seem to help tremendously, so I'm certain coconut oil would really help!

Love coconut oil! DH rubs it on my belly every night. We plan on using it on baby boy and as diaper cream as well. I use it to cook with especially in cakes and brownies.

So, does it SMELL and TASTE like coconut? I don't like coconut so I'm thinking that might be a turnoff for me, but I wasn't sure. Sometimes the oils don't really smell or taste like that.

It does smell and taste like coconut, but not as potent as coconut flesh

We use coconut oil here. My daughter gets it every night on her skin, used it to get rid of her cradle cap and use it in her bum (its cloth diaper safe)

Ok, I actually managed to remember to get some today! Wouldn't you know that my eczema is better right now than it has been in months (not that I'm complaining about that), so I won't really be able to "test it out" for that just yet, but I'm still excited to start using it. And I'm going to put it on my eczema trouble spots anyway, even thought they aren't inflamed right now.

Just wanted to pop in and say it's a great carrier oil for essential oils. Meaning, essential oils are so potent, that mixing a drop or two with coconut oil and using that to massage into skin is a really beneficial way to do it. This is such a nice, safe way to deliver the benefits of essential oils to babies and toddlers to help with anything from fevers to sleep troubles to ear infections.

I mix tea tree oil with mine for my face and lavender for my body! I also use peppermint, eucalyptus, lemon for different things.
