Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Giveaway #readytopop


We've decided to celebrate Labor Day this year in a totally fun way – by celebrating those Mamas and Babies who have done some of the hardest labor out there!  Welcome to the Ready to POP! {a Labor Day Giveaway Hop} hosted by So Easy Being Green, According to Jenny, and Viva Veltoro!


Each blogger in this Hop has a fabulous Mama or Baby prize for you to enter to win – so be sure to hop around to them all, including the Grand Prize!

Just Me and the Boys has partnered with Tropical Traditions to offer one lucky reader a 32 oz. jar of their famous Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.




This product is great for the pregnant mama, the postpartum mama and her newborn baby. I include coconut oil in all my gift packages at baby showers. Mama can use this on her stretching belly to moisturize, soothe itch and hopefully reduce the chance of stretch marks. Just as it is good for the stretching belly, it is also good for the postpartum belly (as well as the rest of the body).

More importantly it is the best moisturizer for your newborn baby. Newborns have a hard time regulating their body temperature. Lotions are cooling and can lower your baby's body temperature, where as oils are warming.  Sure, there are commercial baby oils out there, but many aren't natural and contain chemicals. Coconut oil also works great as a diaper rash cream and is safe to use with cloth diapers!

Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil is certified organic, chemical free and traditionally made.
Learn more about Virgin Coconut Oil here and check out all the other uses for this product!
