To continue our "Lovin' Mummie's Nummies Birthday Bash"......I have saved one of the BEST items I HAVE EVER SEEN for later in the month. Have you ever heard of a Breastmilk Pendant? You heard me right...... a pendant made OUT OF your Nummies!!!!!!!! "WHAT........ HOW........ HUH???!!!!!"
I am not kidding! CREATIVE right??!! I KNOW IT!
So here is show it all started! Years ago, back when Pooker was enjoying her Mummie's Nummies...... I came across an article talking about a Mummie who turns breastmilk into pendants (well really my husband came across it and showed me.) I remember thinking "Oh my gosh! How cool is that?! I sooooooo want one!" Well Santa never came through for me that year...... (he must have been working on something else...) and I kinda just forgot about it. But a few months ago, I came across this Mummie again. This time I contacted her and asked her if she was willing to take part in a review and giveaway with Mummies Nummies. (To my COMPLETE shock) She agreed!!!!!!!!
I was told all I had to do was send her ONE tablespoon of my Nummies, pick what I wanted , what I wanted it to say, and she would take care of the rest. REALLY?! That is all?????? (really... that was all!) All I did was pay the shipping to send my envelope containing the Mummie's Nummies. (Regular shipping to boot!)
Curious as to how she does it? Well check out her explanation!
So here is my Nummies (hand expressed I might add.... since I could not find my breastpump when I needed it!)
(With my two favorite pictures of my girls......)
(Hard to pick right??!!)
Well do you want to see what I picked????? Okay here it is!!!! **drum roll please.**
(Yupp that is mine!!!!!!!!!!!!)
(I choose the bracelet! I was able to pick the shape (heart) the breastmilk would be formed into and I had the word "Nummies" written on it.) I have to say I am ABSOLUTELY in love! The bracelet is well made (hand braided), the heart shaped Nummies is PERFECT, the hand written "Nummies" looks amazing and well it just brings tears to my eyes just looking at it. If something can bring happy tears to your eyes.... then it has to be amazing. And this bracelet is just that.....AMAZING.
There is NO better way to remember the breastfeeding journey than to actually hold it in your hands. Breastfeeding pictures can only capture so much...... but to have this (forever)...... what a keepsake. This is something I can show my girls, when it is their turn to give their nummie lover some of Mummie's Nummies.
Something that says..... "we did it".
Yes, Pooker and Kit Kat....... we sure did! So happy 2nd birthday to my current Nummie Lover, Kit Kat. Happy 24 months and counting to us. Happy 11 Nummie Lovin' months to Pooker (how long she nursed for.) And happy breastfeeding journey to all of you! Thank you so much for participating in our Birthday Bash. It has been (and continues to be) an amazing journey!
