  • Self tanning lotions....do you think these are okay and safe to use while pregnant?

  • From what I've read, the opinions are mixed. On one hand, they say it's got to be safer than actually tanning. On the other, there has not been any testing of these products on pregnant women. The conventional wisdom is it's ok to use them, but keep them away from your tummy.

  • I don't see why not. I'm sure it is safe to use, especially on arms, and legs. If you are really worried, ask your doctor/midwife.
    I work at a hairsalon/tanning place and I wouldn't tan in a tanning bed. I stopped tanning as soon as I found out I was pregnant.
