"Mommy Necklaces™ are an innovative and trendy accessory for the nursing mom. In 2005, Mommy Necklaces™ began revolutionizing the way that necklaces were worn by moms by creating a necklace designed to be worn while nursing, simply a ‘nursing necklace’. Mommy Necklaces™ aid nursing mothers by making their job as a breastfeeding mom a little less painful, literally. Created by a nursing mother, the idea was born out of desperation when her daughter neared four months old. Tired of the daily wrestling match between baby and breast, along with her daughter’s constant twiddling, pinching, and distractibility, she knew breastfeeding did not have to be this hard and painful! Distracted babies nurse less during the day and more at night (tired mommy!) and fidgety babies love to pull their mother’s hair and leave pinch marks (poor mommy!). Mommy Necklaces™ were invented to occupy busy hands away from Mommy’s hairline while engaging baby in a way that results in longer nursing sessions."
When I had Baby L, I had to stop wearing necklaces because of all the pulling, grabbing and twisting he did. I didn't want him to break anything especially some of my nicer pieces. While nursing, I noticed that since my jewelry was gone, he started playing with my hair and creating knots. I needed something to distract him. I was thrilled when I had the opportunity to review Mommy Necklaces, also known as nursing necklaces, and couldn't wait to try one of their beautiful pieces.
First off, I just want to say you DO NOT have to be a nursing mother to wear a Mommy Necklace. I repeat, you DO NOT need to be a nursing mother. Mommy Necklaces are beautiful and trendy. With 22 different designs you are bound to find one to match whatever you are wearing.
I received the Flat Rock necklace in Blush. It's gorgeous! Had I seen this in a store I would never have thought it was a 'nursing necklace'. All of the beads are made of high-quality acrylics that are tested for both lead and phthalates. The beads are then strung onto an extra sturdy cord that is guaranteed from breaking and comes with a secure break away closure. I tested the Mommy Necklace by pulling and tugging and nothing broke apart so I put it around my neck for Baby L's next nursing. The Mommy Necklace definitely caught his eye. He noticed it right away and began pulling and tugging at it. Throughout nursing, he continued to twist and play with the necklace. He nursed very well and my hair stayed in tact. I kept the necklace on the rest of the day because it just happened to match my outfit that day. Dear Hubby mentioned it, thinking I bought a new piece of jewelry. He had no idea what I was wearing was just a "nursing necklace".
