  • Anyone make nursing bracelets?

    I am thinking of making a few and seeing how they sell just wondered if anyone else does them and if they are good sellers. If go to a few toddler groups and I am pregnant so get to see quite a few pregnant women at the mo so thought it might be a good way to get some new people to look at my site (is that cheeky?!?)

    If anyone makes them. Do you just do the plain ones or do you do the ones with numbers etc?

      It's not cheeky, just good business sense.

              I'm glad your link explained what they're for. I would have never guessed. our 3 girls were fed on demand, none of this going by the clock, but for nursing mums that prefer to time thier feeds it's ideal good idea and hope you do well they look great and are functional as well

                I fed on demand too but midwives advise babies should be fed at least every 4 hours so this would tell you when 4 hours is up.

                  I think we were lucky all 3 of our girls would let us know before the 4 hours were up, well lucky in one way it would have been better if they helped themselves so we could have slept a bit more lol

                    hiya, I make these too, haven't sold any yet though but have had quite a bit of interest - i do mine with numbers too, there's some pictures in my album - very similar to yours really. Good luck with it - I think they should sell with right marketing.

                      I made a few for myself as I nursed all of my 3 children and a few mums were interested and I got a few sales,others just didn't get it and thought they were a 'ridiculous idea'.

                      Even if you only get 2 sales you may get 100 new visitors as a result,keep up the good work.

                        Great site!

                        I cannot say that I have heard of nursing bracelets - but so often people don't know they need something until it is explained to them. That's marketing

                        I know that many of my customers who buy my amber beads do so to make teething jewellery for children - which seems to be quite popular (for some, this is their exclusive line). So that might be something you could do in conjunction with the nursing bracelets?

                          4 hours? I was told off in hospital for leaving mine for 4 hours between feeds (she was sleeping and I needed all the sleep I could get so was hardly going to wake her!) and it should be every 2, but community midwife said on demand for breast feeding as there is no way of telling how much your baby has had.
