Breastfeeding Necklace

I love browsing Etsy and  I really enjoy handcrafted items.  I've had my eye on the gorgeous glass beads made by DeniseAnnette for the longest time.  But if you don't grab what you want right away, someone else will!  So this time, I acted fast and got me this little guy:

He came beautifully packaged and is a wonderful size.  The colors are nice and vibrant and I love his little heart.
So what did I make with him?  Well, my subject line gave it away: a breastfeeding necklace.  I didn't really know what these were but thought I'd make one anyway since Sprout has fast growing, razor sharp nails.  He has absolutely no sharp areas and has so much texture!
It's as easy to make as it looks.  I spent more time finding the wooden circles.  I finally found them at Joann's in the curtain section.  So I put it on at feeding time and it was a success!!  You never really know if things "work" or not, but Sprout immediately grabbed on and kept those little nails busy - and I walked away without scratches!

I will be linking this up with Tatertots & Jello, Flamingo Toes, Skip to My Lou, and Inspire Me Fridays.

Oh yes, he is a cute little fellow, glad you were able to get him AND glad it works. That would definitely be no fun getting those little nails stuck into you...
