In an interview with People, Olivia Wilde shared that when she's not able to actually be with her one-year-old son Otis, she uses the same baby lotion that she uses on him, so she can still feel close to him.

She told the magazine:

I love the smell of all the baby stuff. Itโ€™s all so lovely. Otis been using the same lotion since he was tiny. And actually, when I go away for work and I canโ€™t be with him for a couple of days, I bring a little tub of it and wear it. I donโ€™t know if this sounds super creepy, but I wear it as moisturizer on my arms so I vaguely smell like him. People are probably like, "Why does this lady smell like diapers?"

That's really sweet, and actually not creepy at all. It's not like she's carrying one of his used diapers or a jar of his urine around with her or smearing that on her arms, because that absolutely would be creepy.

Wilde is currently pregnant with her second child with fiancรฉ Jason Sudeikis, and in the interview she spoke a bit about how being pregnant makes her feel pretty:

Thereโ€™s something really beautiful about pregnancy. It is a time when you feel very connected to your body so right nowโ€”not having reached the point where I am definitely physically pregnant โ€”I feel beautiful being in that space. This is what makes me feel best: when I can be in that space and be pregnant, but also be living my life and running around and working hard and being a good mom to my son and just feeling like, "Wow, I have all these internal and external factors that are making me feel great."

Some women, while they might be very happy and excited about the end result of the pregnancy, do not actually enjoy the pregnancy at all. So it's nice to hear about the women who enjoy the whole process. And once a woman has given birth, she is absolutely allowed to do whatever she wants to with that diaper lotion, although eating it might be ill-advised.
