I recently discovered a charming gem of an Etsy shop for natural mothering accessories and “necessities”. Organic Mama’s Shop is the perfect place for a new mom, expecting mom or even a photographer of newborn babies.
The quality is immediately noticeable in all of Shannon’s (the shop owner/creator) products. (Apparently her customers all agree with me, as she has 100% positive feedback.) You can tell all are made with such love, care and attention to detail. Sophisticated yet earthy and simple.
I was instantaneously drawn to the exquisite collections of handcrafted cocoons (newborn photo props), which are as soft and sweet as the babies going in them. Made from various colors of alpaca, bamboo, organic cotton or handspun Merino wool, they can be custom-made to fit your needs.
Here is my newborn all snug and cozy in his very own hand knit cocoon sac – adorably cute with a hint of “masculine” in his knit hat to match. It was perfect!
The weight of her made-to-order nursing necklaces and nursing bracelets feel good – they are substantial (which is tale-tell sign of good quality pieces) without being too heavy. Plus they hold their shape wonderfully. They are beautifully crafted and made with silver plated stainless steel memory wire, so there are no cheap strings and stretchy plastics in sight. She also uses real gemstone beads and lead-free components, and all come with a lifetime guarantee. How about a matching set of casual, comfortable earrings for $5? Or a zipper pull?
If you are like me, you’re probably wondering “what exactly is a nursing bracelet?” Besides being fashionably looking, these bracelets also serve a purpose and are perfect for the new mom, the seasoned mom or as a gift at a baby shower. In Shannon’s own words…
It works like a clock. The number beads 1-12 represent the hours of the day. There are 3 beads separating each number and the spaces between the beads represent each 15-minute increment. You simply place the moveable charm in the spot to mark the time you last fed your little one. The bracelet show the charm @ 11:15.
What else can you use it for?? As a pregnancy kick counter, number of glasses of water consumed, time meds or vitamins were taken, number of dirty diapers, or?whatever else you need help keeping track of!
What is a nursing necklace? Yet another stylish piece that serves a purpose for your nursing child…
Nursing babies all reach the stage where just nursing isn’t enough, they get a little bored and need to do something with their hands while they eat. That usually includes checking your mouth for loose teeth, or attempting to pull your lip up to your nose. How about you give them something else to fiddle with besides your face!
BUY IT! Nursing necklaces sell for $26 and bracelets for $29.95 with FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $50.
