Breast milk jewelry is an actual thing. And it is a really cool thing. Seriously. Don’t laugh or cringe. Wait. Let’s talk about this for a second.
Never, in a million years, did I EVER think I would want something made from my own breastmilk, especially a piece of Breast Milk Jewelry. Unless you are immersed in a world where that is even something you have heard of regularly, you probably don’t even know something like that exists. And you are probably thinking – WHAT is she talking about!
Let me start by saying, when my first son was born, I was young and had very little guidance. I decided to breastfeed not because it was the best option for mom and baby, but because I was pressured into it without really being educated on it. I nursed exclusively for the first couple of days. After a few miserable days as a first-time mom with a jaundiced baby, I decided I would pump and bottle feed.
After a few miserable weeks, I ended up with severe mastitis in my right breast. I thought I was going to die. What’s worse is that the milk I expressed in the middle of the night and then refrigerated for later use was filled with blood and other fluids that relate to infection. I will spare you the details. Long story short, I stopped nursing that day. It wasn’t a good experience for my son or me.
By the time my second child was born, I had decided ahead of time I wasn’t going to bother with breastfeeding and went straight to formula. That little one constantly struggled to feed. He suffered from horrible constipation, reflux, and could only take very small amounts of formula per feeding before it upset his little tummy. I didn’t realize that even though I wasn’t producing milk anymore by the time I realized how the formula was impacting him that there were other ways of feeding him naturally.
When my daughter arrived, I decided from the start to breastfeed her, and I was so amazed at how well we both took to it. I was simultaneously angry with myself for not trying harder with my first two children and amazed at the way my body was providing this amazing and beautiful complete sustenance for my baby girl. It truly was a remarkable process.

Women are remarkable and amazing creatures. Our bodies can perform miracles. Although we may neglect these bodies of ours as our children grow older and we give more of ourselves to them, it is crucial that we acknowledge and support the deep and powerful strength we each have. Being able to nourish our children directly from our own bodies is almost magical.
