What do you do with your frozen breastmilk stash? It might sound like a rhetorical question, one with a simple answer: Feed it to the baby! But, there’s a way to turn some of your milk into a breastmilk keepsake to memorialize your breastfeeding relationship!
It might sound silly, but this wasn’t around when I was at the end of my stash or I would have sent it off to a breastmilk jeweler instead of using it as an additive in the bath to help with my daughter’s eczema. Last year, a close friend moved very, very far away, so a big group of us pooled together and bought her a breastmilk necklace to honor her and her son’s hard-won nursing relationship.
So, if I was to have access to a time machine, one of the many stops would be to the day I used my last bag of frozen milk to tell myself to hold onto it because there was a cool new trend going to happen in a couple years.
If you search online, you will find a million different jewelers who create breastmilk keepsakes – necklaces, beads for your Pandora bracelet, and more. The artisan selected for our friend’s necklace was one recommended to me, Hollyday Designs. I loved that she had a design that incorporated a camera as the recipient is a wonderful photographer (her pics are all over this site!). If you like this necklace, you’ll love her other designs!
UPDATE!!!! Once I shared my blog post with Holly, owner of Hollyday Designs, she was so thrilled to hear about my experience that she offered my clients and readers A COUPON CODE!
