I didn’t really understand why someone would want a nursing necklace until the bambino’s pastime of playing with my chain whilst breastfeeding turned into my head being yanked down in a chokehold with my precious chain in her little fists! Then I saw the point – If you’re going to yank my chain, don’t do it with an expensive piece of jewellery.
Fizzy Melon do a quirky range of nursing necklaces that can solve the problem of your baby pinching your skin, hair, jewellery, and anything else they feel like grabbing up. It keeps their attention focused rather than them becoming distracted and either stopping feeding or trying to swivel their head and take your nipple with them.
The one pictured is the Newborn Nursing Necklace which is rather clever as it features similar colours and patterns that you would find on newborn blocks like the red block in the Wimmer Ferguson Mind Shapes by Manhattan Toy Co. The necklaces aid visual and tactile stimulation which helps with cognitive development and hand to eye co-ordination and tracking, and each one has been designed by a BA Hons child development student.
They have quite a colourful range to suit most tastes with some looking like very tempting sweets and they would certainly make a nice baby shower gift.
They’re Â£12 at Fizzy Melon.
