Breast Milk Jewelry...July 17, 2010
Ever heard of it? Neither had I. You can read more of the original post here. I just thought that was one of the most amazing things I'd ever heard of. I got some responses I didn't really foresee. Moms were disgusted by the idea. I'm not saying to keep your old fingernails or better yet toe nails. It's breast milk and it would be your own for your child.

I did update the post with the personalized info bit, I guess I assumed that was understood. I don't know what goes into regular plastic but it sure makes our bodies estrogen levels act up. I see nothing wrong with a natural womanmade (lol) plastic. I still want to try this once baby #4 is here. I've got my own pump this time and can pump as much milk as i want. The reason I like and wrote about this jewelry was to bring awareness back to breast feeding. This is my personal opinion (seeing as it's my blog) that all mother's should breast feed. I know, I know, that's like wishing for world peace. As long as there are people are here here and alive on the earth that will never happen but seriously, why oh why don't more mothers breast feed their babies?

Why Breast Feed?
  • It's extremely economical FREE Food
  • boosts their immune systems
  • it's one of the best things you can do for your child.
    nursing mothers counsel
    Here are just a few of the benefits babies stand to gain from the breastfeeding relationship: 
     less gas, diarrhea, and constipation stronger immune systems higher IQ fewer allergies and less risk of asthma fewer incidences of diabetes and cancer less risk of childhood obesity less risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) better dental and facial development, and decreased likelihood of dental caries 
    The rewards of breastfeeding are often overlooked when it comes to mom: 
     promotes bonding promotes uterine contractions after childbirth and reduces bleeding promotes weight loss less risk of ovarian and breast cancers economical—breastfeeders save over $1000 USD in the first year convenient—always available, and always the right temperature saves time—no formula to prepare, and no bottles to wash clean and safe—and available when normal supplies of food and water are interrupted
The main rebuttal seems to come from working moms. No one can give me excuses about working full time or part time and not being able to breast feed. I did both and pumped in the bathroom sitting in a restroom (there was no cutsie guest couch or private lounge area). I sat right on the potty and pumped for 20 minutes every lunch break. I did this for my both my Princesses back when I was not fortunate to stay at home; with PrincessT I worked full time, with PrincessJ I worked part time. But I'm superwoman I've been told so I guess my super powers gave me that ability. No I'm not trying to be rude, just this is a very passionate topic to me. I don't have the right to tell people how to live, just doing my best and being a good example are my only real super powers.

Gosh if it were possible I really do have the heart to breast feed every baby alive, (that would hurt) but that's how serious and important I think it is.

I'm entered to win Thelma & Louise. A big thank you to SITS and these sponsors, Standards of Excellence, Westar, and Florida Builder Appliances.
