Here is Velociraptor at 2 weeks already knowing how to use it... My boobies thank her!
I am so glad to have recieved this, until you have used one you have no idea how nice it is to feed your baby without the worry of having your hair pulled or your "boo boos" scratched and pinched! I remember with Jubbs and Cpt. Caveman all the fistfulls of my hair and all the painful bruises and scratches... it's NO fun! But with this very simple yet very pretty necklace I no longer have to worry about that! She has recently has been also using it for its other use which is a wooden teether and she loves it!
The first nursing/teething necklace I recieved is made up of a 2" natural, hand-sanded wooden Birch ring and finished with organic olive oil. It has a beautiful 30mm Fancy Jasper donut and wooden accent bead. Keeps little ones hands busy while eating. The wooden ring can be used as a teether, but the stone donut should not! It is on a black satin adjustable cord. One continual cord for safety. No clasps that could break, no worries of loose beads. The Jasper is perfectly neutrally colored so it goes with anything!
"Hello, My name is Celeste. I am the wahm behind “Works Like A Charm” Nursing necklaces.
I have been married to my wonderful husband since 2007 and we have two children.
When my son was born in 2009 I was determined to breastfeed. As he got a little bigger and more curious, I realized I was getting a lot of hair pulled, chest scratches, and delicate jewelry broken! That is when I started making my own nursing necklaces made of safe non-toxic materials and strong cord to withstand all of the tugs and pulls it would take! And to my delight they “Worked like a charm”!
My Daughter was born only one year later in 2010, and this time around I had worn my nursing necklaces from the very beginning and as long as I had it on I never lost even one strand of hair! It got me thinking that I probably wasn’t the only breastfeeding mother that had this problem and that other mother’s would benefit from these nursing necklaces as well. So in early 2011 Works Like A Charm was born and has been a very helpful accessory to breastfeeding mothers ever since."
Well said Celeste! And I must say myself ... they really do work like a charm! Not only has Celeste so graciously offered these beautiful (and extremely helpful) necklaces up for me to review, she has also sent me one for a giveaway so one of you lucky ladies can try one too! This is the 2" hand-sanded (by Celeste) natural Birch wood ring with a 3mm Unikite stone donut and a wooden bead accent ~ Beautiful, isn't it?
*Random breastfeeding tip... I have found that if you unclench at least one of their little fists while their eating and leave it lay flat in your hand or on your cheek and the rapid suckling will calm to a more gentle and relaxing feeding for both Mama and Baby!
