      What great ideas! I wished I had a few of these products back when I was having children. I love the Earth Mama Angel Baby products, but had never heard of the pregnancy cast. I will have to pass this information on. Thanks!

      Wow lol you guys were quick!

      Hello, hello - thankyou :)

      RetailPrincess - they're all great pregnancy gifts and they're all either the most wished for or the most gifted ... so choosing from among them, or similar products, should be about right :)

      drbj - I reckon we'd have been in clover if we'd come up with the Belly Cast Kit. Or maybe we'd have been plastered he he!

      Debra - I'm sure drbj is spot on. It's a unique idea that's really taken off :)

      Robin - hey thanks for that. I'm a lover of coconut oil myself (for the skin) but the Earth Mama products are pretty special. And thanks for the recommendations too :)

      I love, love Earth Mama Angel Baby products. All organic and worth the money. My favorite gift for new moms are nursing products. Every mom should have the book by Kathleen Huggins', "The Nursing Mother's Companion." I highly recommend it! The Bella Band is also great. Helps hold in the baby belly before AND after the preganancy!

      A belly cast for a pregnant mommy? Now why didn't you and I think of that? We could be selling them and make a fortune. Thousands? Hundreds?

      A dollar or two? :)
