The first necklace is a small serpentine necklace. I was interested in serpentine because in the description it said that serpentine “helps bring inner peace and is great to wear during meditation. It balances mood swings, and is even said to help nursing mothers with their milk supply.” Balances mood swings? Hey, what mama couldn’t use that? J I also have many days where I struggle with my milk supply and my menstrual cycle just returned and that really didn’t help so I really wanted to use this necklace when I was away from my little one (at work) to help with my supply. Nikki, the owner of Moon Dog Farms, did make a great point that the smaller stones aren’t great to use as nursing necklaces because even though none of us mamas would allow our babies to play with it while we weren’t around, it is a choking hazard and you just never know. For safety purposes, it would be best to get a larger stone. I couldn’t agree with her more. I had my DH take these photos just to show the size of the stone in my 6 month olds hand.
I absolutely fell in love with this necklace. I thought it would be a great necklace to wear while nursing, but I will even wear this to work and when my darling hubby and I go out! It is GORGEOUS! The size is perfect for a little one to grab and play with while nursing and it really does entertain my little one. He loves playing with it. He plays with it even when he’s not nursing! I think he loves it as much as I do! It definitely does the trick and serves it purpose as a nursing necklace! I will be getting lots of use out of this! These necklaces would make a great gift for new mamas too! It’s a unique gift for showers and something a mom to be would love not only for her, but for her baby too!
