Nursing Braclet


This is my new favorite baby shower gift. I got the idea from Nanny Goat. It has the hours 1-12 and three beads between each number, representing fifteen minutes, you just move the clip to the time you last nursed. I think it is a cute idea! You can also use it to keep track of how many diapers your baby goes through a day or last time you gave them medicine, if they are sick. It was really easy to make just get memory wire, number beads, beads, a clip and charm. The hard thing for me to find was the number beads. I had to get them in Indianapolis (50 miles away). But you can probably find them online too, Alpha Beads makes them. All my supplies coast $12 and I was able to make four before I ran out of number 1 beads. You can also buy them on Ebay but they sell for $15-$20. Plus it's more fun to make your own.

Also, your cakes look great. Way to go - I hope you continue to enjoy your class.

Actually etsy is much cheaper. It's for handmade items. You set your price and it's only 20 cents per listing for three months.
