You know when you didn’t realize you needed something until it was too late and you needed it immediately? That’s where this nursing bracelet DIY was born!
I had no idea it would be so hard to remember which side I last nursed on! First I thought I would buy a nursing bracelet online and found they were all quite bulky or their clasps seemed difficult. I made this little bracelet because I wanted it to be something I’d actually wear, I wanted it small so it wouldn’t press against my baby’s delicate skin, and I needed it easy to clasp with either hand.
What you need for your nursing bracelet
- Rose gold chain (I used this but you could easily use a necklace with chain links big enough for your jump rings!)
- Magnetic clasp
- Two jump rings (whole findings kit here)
- Jewelry cutter and pliers
Start by measuring your wrist. I wanted mine a tad loose but obviously not so much that it slipped off.
Cut your chain to the desired length.
Add your magnetic clasps to each end by joining them with your jump rings.
Then you’re done! Obviously this is super simple; just the way I like it! The best part is it is pretty, but above all, practical! You don’t have to be nursing to enjoy a dainty little bracelet either.
Now I just have to remember to switch wrists after each feeding. I honestly made 3 of these with different chains because I loved it so much! The magnet clasp here is really strong and hasn’t slipped off yet like the first magnets I bought.
This is a really simple DIY you can make yourself in a few minutes or even make for a future mom in your life as a little gift! What do you think? Would you find this as helpful as I did?
