Help for the Nursing Mother
As a new mom, The Nursing Bracelet is a positive tool used to aid in establishing your nursing relationship with your newborn. During the first few days after your little one has arrived life will be quite hectic, and learning how to nurse your baby can be rather daunting. We know from first hand experience that nursing does not always come as naturally as we believe it should, and it is very easy to get frustrated and disappointed when first starting out. With The Nursing Bracelet you will be able to relieve some of the stress, worry and anxiety that comes during this important stage in your newborn's life.
According to the Canadian Pediatrics Society, newborn babies should feed every two to three hours. It can, however, take time for babies to establish a feeding routine, and tired moms often find it difficult to keep track of a hungry newborn's 'little-and-often' feeding patterns. The Nursing Bracelet is a simple and attractive solution to this problem, with several functions that will help you keep track of your newborn's feeds, while also aiding in establishing a good milk supply.
As a new mother the lack of sleep you will experience during the first few weeks after giving birth is unimaginable. You most likely will be very tired and will find it difficult to remember when your baby last fed. It may also be difficult to recognize the difference between your newborn's hunger cries and other cries. Having a record of your baby's last feed helps you recognize when they're hungry and ensures they feed often enough. Tracking which breast you last nursed from can help to control sore nipples, avoid breast engorgement and ensure your baby gets the full benefit of your milk. The Nursing Bracelet provides a simple, discreet way to record this information, and is always there when you need it.
How to Use The Nursing Bracelet
With The Nursing Bracelet you can quickly and easily track your newborn's feedings. It can remind you which breast you fed from last and the time that your baby last fed, using number beads and colored beads arranged to represent a 12-hour clock. The number beads represent hours and each colored bead indicates a 15-minute interval. An attached charm is moved to mark the time (see the diagram below). You will never forget your baby's schedule again, whether you're breastfeeding-on-demand or simply making sure a sleepy baby nurses frequently enough.
Using The Nursing Bracelet:
1. Switch your bracelet from wrist to wrist to keep track of which breast you last nursed from.
2. Move the charm to mark the time your baby's last nursing began (see diagram below). This is helpful is you have a sleepy baby who doesn't wake for nursing often, if you would like to establish a breastfeeding schedule, or if you're nursing-on-demand and would like to track your baby's breastfeeding patterns. You can either mark when your baby fed last or when your baby should nurse/feed next.
3. An alternate use for the bracelet is to count the total number of nursing sessions in a day. Place the charm after the relevant bead number.
Didn't work for me at all Review by Michelle
Price Value Quality
I thought this would be helpful, but it really wasn't for me. In my sleep-deprived state, I could never remember if I had moved the bracelet from one side to the other, and the clasp was just too fiddly when I had my newborn in my arms (which was most of the time I was awake!)Would you recommend this product to a friend? Unlikely
Paper and pencil worked best for me...
But I'm sure someone will love it! (Posted on 1/4/11)
