KangarooCare Breastfeeding and Babywearing Necklaces

I'm so excited to have the opportunity to review a couple KangarooCare breastfeeding necklaces for you all this week! KangarooCare necklaces are handmade by Varja, a WAHM who lives in the European country of Estonia. Don't let the far distance discourage you from checking her shop out, though! Shipping to the USA is only $4, and it only took a couple weeks for me to receive the necklaces.

These are the two necklaces I was sent to review. The one on the left is a necklace titled The Best Babywearing Necklace, and the one on the right is the Classic Nursing Necklace. Both necklaces come with the long cotton cord unfastened at the top so that you can knot the necklace to whatever length you desire.

The green Classic Nursing Necklace is my favorite of the two. I love the crocheted flower in the center, and the greens match many of my favorite shirts. This necklace is strung on a crocheted cotton cord, and the colored beads are crocheted cotton over the same wooden beads that frame the necklace. The wooden beads on this necklaces are made of applewood and the whole necklace is safe for baby to chew on.

The Best Babywearing Necklace is definitely Ava's favorite of the two. She loves holding the wooden pendant while breastfeeding. This necklace is also strung on a cotton cord with cotton crocheted beads. The beads on this necklace are made of juniper wood, and again this whole necklace is safe for baby to chew on!

I have really loved having these necklaces available for breastfeeding and babywearing. It's really nice to have a necklace on and not have to worry about whether Ava is chewing it or pulling on it. With the cotton cord, these are very soft on my neck, so even when she does pull it doesn't hurt! Before I got these necklaces Ava had a terrible pinching habit while nursing, and I constantly had scratches all over my chest. These have really helped to redirect her need to grab and pinch, and I no longer have problems with her doing that. It was really interesting to have both styles to compare, too. Initially I assumed that Ava would like the green one with the flower better, due to the different textures and shapes, but even though she does like that one she definitely has a preference for the green and pink necklace with the wooden bead. Check out KangarooCare's Etsy shop to see the many styles and colors of necklaces that they make. There is really something for everyone there!
