My Mood:
SALE ON NOW - All In-stock Nursing / Teether Necklaces

I've got TONS of brand new gemstone beads as well as a whole new stock of hardwood rings on order... and until they arrive, I've got my remaining in-stock inventory of Nursing / Teether Necklaces ON SALE!! All are now $15.00 in my Etsy shop, plus use "DSMAMA" coupon code to save 5% on your entire order.

Nursing necklaces are used to give babies something to hold onto while feeding instead of pinching, pulling, or slapping mom. My daughter loved to breastfeed, but her hands were always moving and the result was that I ended up with some lovely red scratches after most nursing sessions. I wanted to design a necklace that was beautiful yet functional and offered something for both of us.

These nursing necklaces offer the best of both functionality and beauty. The cord is knotted with double slip knots so the length is adjustable. The photo above is the one I wear and is shown full length. The wooden ring is perfect for babies who may use it as a teether (excellent while babywearing!) as, unlike stone rings, it is safe for biting on even when those first teeth are in. The semi-precious stone beads are strung onto the hand-knotted cord in such a way that there are held on by being tied to the ring itself, not knotted on individually... which means that they can not come off unless the cord is completely untied. They are tied snug so baby can't get them in their mouths... and, babies love that the beads can move up and down on the cord! The double stones of this necklace make a light sound when they hit each other and babies enjoy shaking the necklace to hear the sound.

Full length necklaces are approximately 36" (92cm) long. The wooden ring is 2.25" (5.75cm) across, and 0.5" (1.25cm) thick. The cord itself is black nylon and is extremely strong and durable. Being nylon, it will not fade, bleed dye, or stretch and it has no odor. It also has an attractive sheen.

Each ring has been drilled, sanded, and finished by hand. The sunflower oil used as a finish is certified organic, food safe, and a very rare allergen.

What you see is all that is left and some of those stones will no longer be available after the in-stock is gone... so if you have a favorite, now is the time to snatch it up! I will also be stocking some of these necklaces over in my HyenaCart store on Monday at NOON... and if you want to risk waiting, there may be further discounts applied!
