Moon Dog Farm Nursing Necklace Review & GIVEAWAY!

I first came across the Moon Dog Farm nursing necklaces in a search I did on Etsy. Anyone who is or has nursed an infant around 4+ months knows how easily distracted they can be. Nursing necklaces give your little one something to look at, feel, and play with while nursing. They can also be of great help to us mamas who have a baby who stays latched on and turns his head when he hears something! OUCH! J
When I first looked around the Moon Dog Farm Etsy store, I was very impressed at the selection they have. I think I could find a necklace to match anyone’s style. I had a difficult time deciding which necklace I wanted to review because there are just so many gorgeous stones. On top of the look, I love the fact that they put a description of the stone and what it is helpful in doing.
I was sent two necklaces to review. The packaging is adorable and waste free!! J  It’s a small fabric bag that would be great to use for jewelry while traveling or even just to keep your nursing necklace in when not wearing it.

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.

The serpentine is a beautiful stone and is something I will wear to work or even on days off, just not when nursing because of the size. 🙂 I did see a bit of an increase in my supply in the beginning but then like I mentioned, my menstrual cycle came back after 6 months of being gone so my supply did go down. I will continue to wear this for the increase in my milk supply and for the inner peace, and because I find it absolutely beautiful!
The other necklace I was sent to review was an agate donut nursing necklace. In the description it states that “agate has been used for thousands of years, and has many properties. It is a birthstone of Gemini. It is a powerful emotional healer and has a calming affect during times of stress. Hindu mystics believe it helps children overcome fears, as it enhances courage and protects against danger. It also improves memory and concentration.”  Now really, what mama couldn’t use this? I know I said that with the first necklace, but really!! 🙂

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!
