Using a Breastmilk Keepsake to Celebrate Your Breastfeeding Journey
Being a breastfeeding mom has its ups and downs. Every mom has different experiences, struggles, and wins when it comes to breastfeeding! This is why it’s so important to celebrate your journey as it comes to an end… And what better way to do this than with a breastmilk keepsake? Here are a few of my favorite ideas to celebrate your journey as a breastfeeding mom.
Breastmilk Keepsake Jewelry
Breast milk keepsake jewelry is a semi-new idea but it has really taken the world by storm. So many moms want a breastmilk keepsake that they can wear to show off their individual journey!
There are tons of different types of breastmilk jewelry to fit each person’s individual style. You can choose from necklaces, rings, bracelets, charms, and more!
My favorite breastfeeding keepsakes come from Empowered Mama. She creates a variety of gorgeous pieces to showcase your breastfeeding journey. My breastmilk ring is from her shop and I also just got a necklace from her as well!
Next on my list is to try her breastmilk lathers… These are a great way to preserve and enhance the healing power of breastmilk with different ingredients and essential oils.
Throw a Party
Coming to the end of your breastfeeding journey should be the cause for a celebration! Why not throw a party and let family and friends join in on the fun?
You can even dress up the food to match the celebration. Get a pumping cake or turn some chocolate-covered strawberries into boobs. However you decide to celebrate, just bring the focus back to your personal breastfeeding experience and create some fun memories to remember it by!
Breastmilk Keepsake Photoshoot
Another popular choice for remembering your breastfeeding journey is to have a special photoshoot! There are so many different options to choose from.
For example, you could get cute pictures of your little one in a milk bath. This is a great way to use up the rest of your freezer stash and provide some great skin benefits for your child!
Or, you could have a pumping or nursing photoshoot of you and your little one. Use one of our cute and comfortable nursing bras like the Amelia Cami or Ella to show off how you breastfeed your little one. This is a great breastfeeding keepsake because you can look back on your journey and how little your baby used to be!
Get a Tattoo
If you’re a fan of body art, why not get a tattoo to remember your breastfeeding journey? This is a fun breastfeeding keepsake that you can always have as part of you. The options are literally endless for this one! You could choose your child’s name, a depiction of breastfeeding your baby, or a quote or symbol that reminds you of your journey… Whatever will help you remember how far you’ve come!
And if you aren’t a fan of tattoos, you could opt for henna! Although this isn’t as lasting, it is a great way to celebrate your journey as a breastfeeding mom in a fun and artistic way.
Take a Vacation
This is the first time you aren’t hooked up to a pump or have to balance your schedule around a nursing child! Have a little getaway to celebrate the end of this part of your journey. Whether you choose a weekend trip with your spouse, a family getaway, or a girl's night out, celebrate this new freedom by taking a much-needed vacation!
