Welcome To Breast Milk Keepsakes

Welcome to Breast Milk Keepsakes, handcrafted pure breast milk jewellery. Breast milk pendants, lockets, charms and beads.

Breastfeeding is a wonderful gift to give to your baby. The health benefits will last a lifetime and the special bond created between mother and baby is like no other.

Breastfeeding may be natural but it doesn't always come naturally. At times it takes a lot of perseverance or in my case sheer stubbornness.

Breastfeeding my twin boys has been a wonderful achievement and  it has been the most rewarding and beautiful experience. I cherish my breast milk pendant and I wear it proudly.

A Breast Milk Keepsake is a memento of your breastfeeding journey, it's a badge of honour and something tangible to have after your child has weaned from the breast.

Breast Milk Jewellery for Gentle Donors

 A milk bank is a service that collects, tests, processes and  distributes donated human milk by prescription of a physician  or a hospital. Milk banks are known around the world to  ensure that infants will be fed with human milk if ever their  mothers cannot provide them one. Human milk is donated by  women who are not necessarily related to the infant. 

 An infant needs the ideal nutritional value of the human milk  for his/her first year. Milk bank serves as a reserved breast  milk for the newborn infants that are not able to feed on from  their biological mother due to some certain risky terms  like  infections and diseases that the baby might get. 

 Donors are ought to do screening and run through some tests  for infectious disease or other serious medical histories. It is to ensure that the milk they’ll be donating will be healthy and risk-free. 

There are over two hundred milk banks in the world and sixteen of them are located in North America. Human Milk Banking of North America (HMBANA) is a non-profit organization of human milk banking in Canada and United States that promotes the importance of the health of babies and mothers around the globe, especially in North America. 

The oldest milk bank in North America can be found in Boston, Massachusetts USA. In 1947, A Mrs Trentman was unable to breastfeed her baby and ran to the Boston Lying-in Hospital which collects, process and distributes human milk for infants who are in need. One of the milk banks in Canada can be found in Alberta which also gives value to babies’ health.

European Milk Bank Association (EMBA) is a non-profit organization which has been established to promote milk banking in Europe and provide human milk from donors. Human milk banks existed in Europe since 1909 in Venice, Austria. Today, in England there are fourteen milk banks and in Finland, seventeen.

Willing healthy donors are hard to find. That’s why donors are really like angels. That’s why milk banks usually give donors a small token of appreciation that they can treasure and remember. 

A piece of breast milk jewelry is the perfect token to be given as a gift to first-time donors. You might think it’s a little weird, but breast milk jewellery will truly symbolize her experience for donating breast milk and giving a precious infant the chance to acquire health and nutrition earlier on. Donors can carry and wear it every day and take pride of their little act of kindness. 

 

Why Breast Milk is Best for Your Baby

What could be more natural than breast milk? After all, mammals are able to feed their young with something that is produced by the body and full of nutrients. Here are a few reasons why you should consider breast milk for your baby.

Reason #1: Boosts Immune System

The infant’s immune system is still delicate and in the process of building itself up. Surprisingly, the breast milk contains nutrients that boost the immune system that formula milk is unable to replicate. Because of the right genetic formula, it protects the child from acquiring certain diseases and infections. 

Reason #2: Prevents Allergies

Even if the parents suffer from allergies, breast fed babies are less likely to pick up since they build protection against these allergies. Studies have shown that there is strong correlation with these two.

Reason #3: Lessens Respiratory Illness 

Breast fed babies have lesser chances to be hospitalized caused by respiratory illness compared to formula-fed babies. This can be traced to their strong immune system that contains antibodies that acts as protection.

If you find yourself in pain while breastfeeding, it would be worth jumping over and seeing our friend's post on the best bottles for breastfeeding.

The list about how breast milk benefits babies can go on and on. Why not give your child the best thing you can do at this moment?

How Breast Cancer Affects Everyone

Breast cancer. Those are the two words that every woman dreads the most after having gone through that annual check up. Breast cancer does not only affect the person diagnosed with it – it also affects everyone in the community that she belongs to. Imagine that your best friend told you about this devastating news. Would you know how to react? What would you say? That’s right. Your initial response would probably become speechless as the words you want to say to comfort her have suddenly become lodged in your throat. Yes, all of those things can happen in a blink of an eye. It could happen to anyone – including you.

If you suspect anything weird going on with your breasts, try to do a thorough self examination at home. It’s really helpful since you don’t need anyone’s help or any kind of gadgets. Well, a mirror will help you out in this test. If you detect that something’s wrong, consult immediately with your doctor. Don’t keep putting it off because that day will definitely come. The sooner you know about something, the better it is so that you can take the necessary steps earlier. The next time you find yourself dragging your feet to that annual exam, think about how much time (and money) you’ll be saving. Now, I’m no professional doctor but as they say, prevention is the best cure. Always keep in mind that the earlier it is detected, the larger chance you have of winning the battle against breast cancer. If you’re diagnosed with breast cancer, there’s always hope thanks to the latest medical advancements in technology nowadays.

For us women, it’s important to find support in our family, friends and communities (especially those that we are involved in). It’s important to feel that you’re not alone in this journey towards physical healing.
