Baby Friendly Beads is happy to announce that we are participating in the Bloggy Giveaway hosted by Rocks in my Dryer. I am giving away a Baby Friendly Beads necklace for free! That's right, absolutely free!
What is a Baby Friendly Beads necklace, you ask? It's a nursing necklace, pretty and practical, made to help out breastfeeding moms (and babies) when their little ones reach that pinching, poking, pulling stage.
Designed to keep baby happy at the breast, each necklace is also crafted with mom in mind. Baby can hold the pendant or slide the beads on the necklace cord itself. Since both necklace and pendant are made from one continuous length of cord, there's no chance of one part breaking off from the other. These necklaces are sturdy: I do not use any findings or clasps, because they are often the weakest part of a necklace, and each is secured with a double knot in the back. (If your necklace breaks during the first year of use, assuming normal wear and tear, I will restring your beads for free!) They are long enough for mom to put on over her head and for baby to comfortably play with while nursing, but they can easily be shortened all the way to choker length simply by sliding the adjustable bead at the back.
If you would like to enter the drawing for this free necklace, simply leave a comment on this post. I will be doing a random drawing from these comments sometime between 12 noon and 11 p.m. on Friday 7/27 so be sure to leave your comment before then. Also be sure to include some sort of link to your blog, email, etc. so that I can contact you if you are the lucky winner.
Be sure to check out the other great blogs who are participating in this giveaway. And thanks a bunch to Shannon for coordinating it all!
Here's a picture of the necklace I'll be giving away. (For free! That's right!) Apologies that it isn't of the usual quality for my Etsy shop.... one of the cats jumped on my lightbox this morning and broke it. True story. Sigh. Mom always said the pets caused more damage than the kids ever did, and I'm starting to believe her...
Anyway, it is a lovely little necklace, featuring a cute blue fish and cobalt blue and silver beads strung on black cotton cord.
Fine print: this is open to US residents only. Sorry -- international postage just isn't in the family budget this month. Also, you agree to my Baby Friendly Bead common sense caution: nursing necklaces and bracelets should never, ever be used as teethers or toys. (Even for babies without teeth!) Though all my jewelry is designed with a baby's safety in mind, cords are a strangulation hazard and beads are a choking risk. By purchasing Baby Friendly Beads, you agree that I am NOT responsible for any accidents or injuries that may occur while using and wearing the jewelry. Always use under adult supervision, and please use common sense when wearing and using the jewelry.
