How to make your own nursing necklace (with video!)

Right around 3 months of age, most babies start trying to multi task while eating. A nursing necklace can help keep them occupied and latched on so you can get that feeding done with, nipples intact. I've seen Booby Beads and nursing necklaces for sale for as much as 20 dollars. Luckily, they are easy to make, even for the chronically craft-impaired–like me.

The lace I used was a few bucks for several meters, the beads are plain wood, and the ring at the end is the kind used for potholders. Everything involved is soft and completely safe for baby.

Here's how:

  1. Oh i love this idea! I don't think I've ever heard of it before…I'm definitely going to try it :)

  2. LOVE IT! I am pretty sure I have all of those things around the house. I have been eyeing one of those, but am also craft-impaired and didn't think it would be so simple to make.

  3. when you make it, be sure to put your pinky up, like me. Then its "FANTHEE"

  4. I have never even heard of these! Back when Miles was younger my nipples would've loved the distraction!

  5. My baby played with the necklace I always wear. My husband gave it to me on our first Christmas together. I didn't know they sold things specifically for that, Neat!

  6. I can personally attest that this necklace (and the maker!) are awesome. Miles loves his, which is great because it keeps him from grabbing enormous fistfuls of boob and twisting. Ouch.

  7. Hey that looks familiar! Did you make the one you sent me? xo

  8. AWESOME!! And you're adorable :)

  9. That's so cool! I'm gonna try to make one!

  10. my daughter is only a month old and she's already grabbin at whatever she can while she's feeding. I remembered reading this DIY before she was born thinking "babies really need this?" and now i'm like "I NEED THIS!" I can't wait to put it together and see how she likes it.
