Nursing Necklaces from BFBeads

This month's Featured EtsyBlogger is Jen from bfbeads.
Jen says "Each Baby Friendly Beads nursing necklace is carefully designed and created to help entertain and occupy babies, particularly while nursing. This is especially helpful with older babies who scratch or pinch or are easily distractable while breastfeeding.
Baby Friendly Beads are the original, adjustable-length, one-piece design for nursing necklaces. Because there is only one, continuous piece of cord used in my necklaces, there is no risk of the pendant breaking off and scattering beads everywhere.
I created my innovative, adjustable-length design so that it does not require a clasp, because the clasp is often the weakest part of a necklace. All of my necklaces and bracelets are one of a kind -- while you may find attempts to imitate my necklaces, no other breastfeeding jewelry is quite like Baby Friendly Beads!"

Another innovative design from bfbeads are the Reminder Bracelets. "Reminder bracelets are used to keep track of which breast was nursed on last during a feeding (or which breast needs to begin the next feeding). Simply wear it on the left or right wrist and switch as needed! The beads are strung on memory wire, so the bracelet can be easily switched from one wrist to the other. There are no clasps to fuss with (or for baby to break)."
Jen also says to use common sense and that "Nursing necklaces and bracelets should never, ever be used as teethers or toys. Baby Friendly Beads are made to be strong, but they are not indestructible. Remember this is jewelry, not a toy. Always use under adult supervision, and please use common sense when wearing and using the jewelry." Please see bfbead's profile for more information.
Bfbeads also makes a Stuffy Puffy pendant and has custom birth stone beads available also. Stop by and visit bfbeads and pick up a gift for a nursing Mom!
Jen also has a shop at mamasmagicstudio.Etsy.com and you can find her blog here at MamasMagic.blogspot.com.

How beautiful and practical, such a rare combination! Totally makes me wish I knew a nursing mom.

Of course, they're pretty enough to wear even if you aren't nursing. Hmmm...
