yay!! it's a giveaway!! :) giveaways are always fun for me to do. and this one is NO exception!!
a few weeks ago i got this in the mail...except with a pink string. :)
isn't it soooo pretty? i absolutely LOVE the 'rainbow' beads and it is SO much prettier in 'real life'.
it's a nursing necklace from Aiko Art. this isn't your typical nursing necklace. this is a handmade 'one of a kind' nursing necklace. BUT!! and a BIG BUT!! these are nursing necklaces made to be used DURING nursing, not to 'chew and teeth' on after. ((some other mommy necklaces are made for that, but these are not)) annnnd if you've choosen to not nurse your baby...this will happily keep your baby entertained during a bottle feeding as well. :) just because it's called a nursing necklace doesn't mean it has to be used for JUST that. :)
here's what miss sara, the mommy behind aiko art, has to say about her *fabulous* necklaces...
What's a nursing necklace without a great person to wear it?
This necklace is safe for adults to wear during nursing, bottle feeding, or when holding your little one. Great to be used as a way to distract, comfort or focus. Each necklace is on satin ribbon, made of various beads & spacers. DO NOT allow babies, infants or children to put in mouth. NEVER leave them alone with this or any necklace. Ribbon & beads are a choking hazard.
i wore this necklace quite a bit over the past two weeks. i love how it goes with a ton of my wardrobe. even though miss evaleigh is *almost* 8 weeks old, i don't think she's 'too little' to play with the necklace. i've noticed she loves to hang on to my shirt or my bra while nursing. soooo when i wore this necklace the first time, she hung on to the necklace. i guess it's not really called 'playing'...but she hung on to it the entire time. and i have a feeling once she can play, she will!! ((which she can take her time in doing, i'm so not ready for her to grow up!))
i think it's super great as a nursing necklace. BUT i also think you can...and should...wear it without a nursing baby. :) it's a nice lengthed necklace that will have you looking stylish. :) i also like that i can wear it without looking like it's a 'nursing' necklace. everytime i've worn it i've gotten a ton of compliments on it. i also enjoy that it's hand made! you're not going to have 10 bajillion people walking around with the same necklace on. so they're unique to you too!
sara, the mommy behind Aiko Art, is also super great!! i've had a ton of fun working with her and emailing and chatting with her.
and of course she's great because in my package also came this...
**i was provided a necklace from sara at aiko art at no cost to me. this in no way affected my review. and i LOVE the necklace. :)
