MommyMilk Creations Breast Milk Pendants

Today marks the last day of World Breastfeeding Week and I have a really unique breastfeeding product to share with you! I was given the opportunity to review a Breast Milk Bead Pendant from MommyMilk Creations. Allicia is the mama who makes these, and her trademarked Breast Milk Beads are made from your actual breast milk and then are embedded within a pendant so that you have a way to commemorate your breastfeeding relationship. I will admit that when I first heard about Breast Milk Beads they sounded a little strange to me, but the longer I breastfed Ava the more I understood why a breastfeeding mama would want one. The breastfeeding relationship is such a unique one, and it is a huge part of my life. I am so happy to have a little piece of that immortalized in a necklace to remind me of the time I have spent nursing my baby.


The necklace arrived in this cute packaging, and I was so excited to open it and see how my custom necklace turned out! When you order a MommyMilk necklace there are a lot of options you can choose. You can pick out the style of bead you want, the setting you would like it in, the chain it comes on, and the word or name that you would like on it.


For my necklace I chose to have my breast milk turned into the cute little baby hand beads. I picked out the hand-stamped copper bezel to have the beads set in, and asked for Ava's name to be on it. The ordering process for the necklace was really easy: once you place your Etsy order, you receive instructions from MommyMilk with how to send your breastmilk. You only need to send a very small amount, so even a mama who doesn't usually pump can easily hand express the amount. One thing to remember when ordering a Breast Milk Bead necklace is that MommyMilk has a very long turn around time for these at the moment. She has so many orders that turn around is between 10 and 20 weeks right now. For me this was worth waiting for, but if you have a special occasion you want to order one for, make sure you calculate enough lead time.


I am in love with this necklace! It is such a special way to have my breastfeeding relationship remembered. The beads are really well made and the whole necklace looks really fabulous. I am sure that I will be ordering another necklace someday while nursing my second child!

I am curious about how you did send the milk, and even more curious about how she does it. I think I want one...

Hi Lindsay,

Well as far as sending it went: I just double bagged it in breast milk storage bags and froze it flat. Once it was frozen, I mailed it in a poly mailer. :-)

I'm curious how she does it too! There is a little bit about it on her blog that I linked, but she keeps the process pretty secret due to the amount of lesser quality copy cats out there.
