Nursing has been quite the experience for me. My son and I had some challenges in the beginning, but we worked through them. He’s a champ. And I pumped religiously for my daughter for 15 months. I no longer pump for her, as my freezer is packed to the max, but my son still nurses, so this is something that I plan on continuing until he quits (or goes off to college- just kidding!). My daughter is special needs, so I feel like I give her most of my time. Nursing is one-on-one time for my son and I and I don’t want to take that away from him.
Anyway, my husband knows how important this journey has been, so when he asked what I wanted for my birthday he didn’t bat an eye when I told him breast milk jewelry from Indigo Willow Breast Milk Jewelry & Keepsakes. This is jewelry that is made with your actual breast milk.
I’m absolutely intrigued by it and it’s one to hold this journey as to close to my heart as possible. I know one day my son will push me away, and when that happens, I’ll always have our memories.
These are just a few of the available pieces:
If you’re interested in some for the holidays, I’d recommend ordering now, as it can take anywhere from 8-12 weeks! The amazing part is, you can get an awesome piece with just 2 tablespoons, or 30 ml of breast milk!
I can’t wait to receive my jewelry!
What do you think of breast milk jewelry? Would you want a piece to commemorate your journey?
