I never needed a nursing necklace with my boys, but my baby girl is the most fidgety feeder I have ever seen. She grabs at anything and everything: my shirt, my face, my hair, my skin… it’s driving me nuts! It was time to make a nursing necklace in attempts to distract her little hands.
These necklaces are very easy to put together and not only are they stylish but also functional. They appeal to babies sense of vision and touch and can also be used as teethers (as long as the right materials are used and under constant supervision).
