New nursing necklace

I’ve been on the lookout for a jade necklace (specifically for the properties jade is supposed to possess) for a while now, but was unable to find anything I liked until recently.

Back when I had the “I make milk…superpower” t-shirt giveaway here last month, a woman named Paty (who I know from a “crunchy” message board) submitted a picture to me of her child nursing while playing with a nursing/breastfeeding necklace around her neck. I noticed from her signature that she sold necklaces so I took a look at her site – Paty’s Loveys. I emailed her back and told her that I was looking for a jade necklace specifically and she tracked one down for me in no time. Paty provided great customer service and was very prompt in responding to me.

The necklace is just what I was looking for, is adjustable and very sturdy and should hold up as a nursing necklace (i.e. something for Julian to play with while he nurses) wonderfully. πŸ™‚

Mommy likes it and Julian enjoys it too!

In addition to nursing necklaces, Paty also makes and sells waterproof bibs, changing pads and wet bags (for cloth diapers), as well as blankets.

    as for the properties of jade, here is some info i found online:
    Mental Healing
    According to followers of the New Age, Jade encourages practicality, wisdom, mental peace and tolerance of others. They also believe it can rejuvenate during periods of stress, reduce fears, banish negative thoughts and increase a personÒ€ℒs capacity for giving and receiving love. Jade makes a good worry stone and is often used in rosaries.

    Spiritual healers attribute different abilities to each color of Jade. They recommend blue for aid in meditation, brown when entering a new phase in life, green for the management of passionate feelings, lavender for repairing a broken heart, red for generating emotional energy, white for problem-solving, yellow for people with a lack of energy.

    Physical Healing
    Crystal healers associate Jade with ailments of the immune system, thymus, heart, kidney and nervous system. Nephrite is actually derived from the Greek word for kidneys and is still a remedy among healers for Nephritic Colic. The crystal healing followers also believe it can stimulate white blood cell and adrenaline production, which could account for its long association with sports. Eastern athletes believe it can darken in times of superior fitness and lighten when illness comes.

  2. I wish I’d known about nursing necklaces. My son is 11 months today and I had so stop nursing him about a month ago due to his activity. He wouldn’t sit still long enough to nurse and wasn’t getting enough and my milk dried up. Maybe if I’d had something like that to keep his attention…..oh well.
