For many new mothers, breastfeeding is one of the most magical times in their lives. Now, breastmilk jewellery is becoming an increasingly popular way to immortalise and celebrate those newborn baby days.
As anyone who has breastfed will know, when the time comes for baby to be weaned, it brings a range of emotions. It’s the end end of a very special chapter.
Breastfeeding a child is also a real achievement that takes effort, perseverance and dedication on the mother’s part. Not every woman finds it easy to breastfeed. But with determination and love they embark on the journey hoping to give their newborn baby the very best start in life. It can mean many hours of broken sleep, tears, tiredness… but also an immense sense of closeness to your new child.
And, whether you manage it for just a few days, weeks, months or even years, it’s something you’ll only ever experience for a short window in time – and hopefully look back on fondly forever.
Stopping breastfeeding might happen by choice – yours, or baby’s – or it may just come to a natural end as you introduce other methods of feeding.
Before the chapter finishes, why not mark the end of this incredible era with something lasting to commemorate those early baby days and create a lasting symbol of how your special bond was formed?
That’s where breastmilk jewellery comes in
Whether as a gift to a partner, or to yourself… even as an heirloom to be passed on to your child when they are older, a piece of jewellery created using a small amount of your breastmilk is becoming an increasingly popular way to celebrate a mother’s breastfeeding journey.
Now, the incredibly talented Paula Roberts, of Lowton’s Forget Me Not Ashes Jewellery, is making beautiful necklaces, rings, pendants, earrings and bracelets which incorporate a little dried breast milk, mixed with other substances to preserve it and keep its colour.
They make fantastic sentimental mementoes of those early baby days, which disappear all too soon!
