Having four children, there’s one thing they all have in common besides my hair color: they were all breastfed for at least one year. With that said, I am enjoying every single nursing session with my newborn, especially since I know he has completed our family. I need to savor the journey as long as I can, because he will be celebrating his 1st birthday before we know it. When I discovered breastmilk jewelry, I had to know more.
Breastmilk Jewelry is amazing and beautiful. And to be honest, it’s probably one of the pieces I am extremely excited to tell you about. But before I go on, let me say that breastfeeding is important to me as a parent, though I am supportive of babies who drink formula, too! #SupportAllMoms, right? Do what works for you!
With my first born, I had intentions of breastfeeding, but an unsupportive nursing staff made things difficult. There were bumps in the road, but with determination and dedication, we made it through, nursing him to 13 months. My second and third born had great breastfeeding experiences, as a result of trial and error with my first. (It really does get easier!) My fourth child was nursing within 10 minutes of delivery and is 4 months strong. So this jewelry made from my own breast milk and a keepsake of my nursing journey means more to me than anyone will ever know.
Take a look at what Hollyday Designs can do. From pendants, earrings and rings to bracelets and charms, they can take a small sample of your breast milk and preserve it into beautiful hand-crafted art. And the process was simple: I placed my order, sent in about 1 tablespoon of milk, then watched as my order status was updated on the website. A few weeks later, when the order was ready to ship, I received an email with tracking information… and may or may not have tracked it for days until it arrived! I could not contain my excitement! I now own jewelry made from my breast milk!
