Precious Mammaries Review: Breast Milk Drop Classic Necklace
My Breastfeeding Journey
My daughter is the epitome of the word precious. She has a gentle, but magical energy. It is almost impossible for you to look at her and let the corners of your mouth sink. The mother-daughter bond is the foundation that sets the tone for our babies’ first perception of love. From singing sweet melodies to our babies in the womb to flowing liquid gold out of our bodies for their nourishment. I have always seen angelic illustrations of breastfeeding painted in the media. They have led me to believe babies latching on to the nipple was effortless. What I haven’t seen is the painful truth I, along with many other moms, have experienced. My first two weeks of breastfeeding following my baby’s birth were an absolute nightmare.
Don’t get me wrong though, I was infatuated with how our spirits bonded. The chest-to-chest connection is beyond science. However, the physical hardships brought me to tears. I kept struggling with lipstick nipple, which means my nipple would be shaped like lipstick because my baby’s latch was not deep enough. My poor nipples couldn’t handle it; they began to crack, peel, and bleed. I remember feeling like I lit my nipple on fire everytime I tried to shove it into my daughter’s mouth. She would wail and wail as I built up to strength to attempt the latch over and over. Before being a mother, I would mommy shame others in my head. I would wonder why would any mother choose formula over breast milk when it is said to be healthier for the baby and of course, FREE. Dear Formula Moms, I APOLOGIZE. I support your decision now sis. Once I went through those first two weeks of horror, I completely understood why any mom would want to quit. Breastfeeding was worse than labor for me. I was not mentally prepared for the pain at all! Every mom does not have this struggle, but in case someone reading this that can relate, just know it was all worth it for me. My baby’s latch is awesome now, and feeding is smooth sailing!
After I ordered on their website, I got instructions on shipping my milk. I was so happy I could get my necklace from anywhere in the world, because I live in a different state from the business. Rachel was so professional and prompt even though it was the holiday season. I received my necklace super quick! As you see, I am freaking obsessed over this jewelry. Believe it or not, I felt a tear coming when I opened that box. This necklace is more than just an accessory for me; it has sentimental value! Normally, once the breast milk dries up, IT’S GONE! As long as this necklace stays in our family, it can live forever now. Everlasting love baby!
