When I think of a breastfeeding woman in the most natural setting, the image of a strong majestic African mother comes to mind nursing her multiple children in public, as she wears them around with her while she does her daily activities. This strong impression left me thinking and believing that Black women all over the world are rooted in the tradition of breastfeeding. Sadly, this isn’t reality anymore.
This is why Black Breastfeeding Week is essential. It’s not about dividing the races. It’s not about making Black people feel better than others. It’s about encouragement and education. It’s about feeding Black babies with the most nutritious food they could ever have: human breast milk and that loving skin-to-skin straight from their very own mamas. This is what makes any human thrive, regardless of color. And Black people need this the most.
Why do Black women need a Breastfeeding Week?
Because they need to feel supported when the support is severely lacking for their demographic. Not all minorities or people of color in the United States, for example, need this much support. Hispanics take up a huge percentage of breastfeeding programs, and we’re so happy that they’ve got that one covered for them! In this way, Black people are not on equal grounds with the rest of the world, including, with the rest of the minority population in the US. This is a fact.
This is why we need awareness, encouragement, and support for the Black community. This is why there is a Black Breastfeeding Week. Because each individual racial demographic has its own set of challenges on top of the challenges all mothers face.
As a person of color myself, I’m aware of these challenges. I have family from both sides that do not understand why I’m still nursing my nearly 2-year-old daughter. I educated myself through Facebook mommy groups about breastfeeding when we couldn’t afford lactation consulting before it even became covered by insurance. Ours never did cover it.
I’m so glad for that support. I’m so glad that I am able to do what is best for my child and my family. Breastfeeding is not just about food. It’s an experience that’s going to stay with you for the rest of your life.

Light & Dark Hair with Breast Milk in Silver Pendant
This sterling silver Milk Drop Crown breast milk necklace is made with a mom’s breast milk and two sets of hair from a baby boy and a girl! The combination of the dark and light strands of hair looks really nice. The way the hairs overlay is subtle and not overpowering to look at.
Mama also chose to include an engraved silver heart with her/baby’s initials along with her milk and hair pendant. Premium engraving is done professionally by a machine, which you can choose to purchase as an add-on to your breast milk necklace.
Jewelry pair with baby’s hair for mom and dad
This set of bubble breast milk pendant necklaces is made with baby’s lock of hair and was made for dad and mom. Their baby passed away unexpectedly, and a caring friend offered this gift to them as a loving memory keepsake.
The parents loved the necklaces and the butterfly gift it came with. By beautiful happenstance, they often thought of their child whenever they saw a butterfly. They felt that he was there in their midst. They said they were going to keep him close by wearing this keepsake every day.
Do you have a friend or family member that could use some TLC? Show them you care and love them with the most meaningful and memorable gift, the gift of DNA jewelry and keepsakes from Precious Mammaries.
Precious Mammaries once discontinued this most popular and beloved design because it was just too hard to set the breast milk stone onto such a thin setting, and that was why it got replaced by the Milk Drop with prongs for awhile. The prong design sadly wasn’t as popular.
We got lots of requests to bring the prongless Milk Drop back, so much so that it was hard to ignore… but now, it is finally back, and it’s better than ever!
Why is it better?
The latest Milk Drop design is back to no prongs, so from the front view, all you can see is your beautiful breast milk stone without any prongs getting in the way.
It’s stainless steel just like the original design, so it’s hypoallergenic for you and baby. You still have the option of choosing sterling or stainless chain with it.
The setting is thicker and round in the back compared to the original flat design but not as thick and bulky as the setting with prongs.
Want to “upgrade” your old Milk Drop design to the new style? Just pay $15 + shipping. Send an e-mail to get in touch, and include your previous order#.

One of the benefits of designing jewelry for mothers is that I get to hear from other mothers who, just like me, have gone through the many highs and lows of breastfeeding.
One customer, Mehley, shared her story with me after she received the Milk Drop necklace she ordered from Precious Mammaries. She felt an overwhelming release of pain through it.
You can read her story below.
Mehley and Baby Ruby’s breastfeeding journey
My baby girl, Ruby, and I struggled to nurse since day 1. She was diagnosed very late with tongue and upper lip ties, which were revised at six weeks. She also struggled with her suck-swallow reflex and had difficulty breathing while she ate. Because she wasn’t able to pull the milk enough, I had to supplement with formula starting at day 3 when she had dropped 15% of her body weight. Even though I was pumping around the clock, my milk supply never came in fully. She would nurse for over an hour each time, then would need to be supplemented with formula.
Through all of this, Ruby kept trying to nurse. She refused the breast two days before her revisions. After the revisions, she had extreme mouth aversion and didn’t want anything to come near her mouth. I was devastated. I wanted to nurse my baby so badly. I had dreamed about it since the day I found out I was pregnant. And here I was, shedding more teardrops than milk-drops, while I fed my baby a bottle of formula.
I got her back to the breast a week later with the help of a nipple shield and a private lactation consultant. She nursed for a week with the shield, then she refused again. Her pattern became nursing for two days, refusing for seven. It was a roller coaster of emotion for me. I was exhausted. I was overwhelmed. And I felt so desperate to nurse my Ruby.
Ruby finally refused the breast for so long that I decided to listen to her. She didn’t want to nurse. It was too hard for her. So I accepted that and decided to begin looking for breastmilk donors. She still nursed overnight, so I kept nursing her through the night, and began feeding her only bottles during the day.
At 3.5 months, I started noticing that Ruby’s diapers were completely dry every morning. She wasn’t gaining weight well, and she was inconsolable in the mornings, which used to be a time when she was able to nurse well and feel satisfied for a few hours before needing a bottle. I knew my supply was declining, and I knew I needed to make a choice. So, I put my own feelings aside, and I listened to my baby. She needed a full tummy more than she needed to breastfeed, and it was time to listen to her. So I let go. That morning, while Ruby cried out in hunger, I walked to the kitchen and heated up a bottle of donor milk. I returned to the bedroom and fed her the bottle of milk. While her tears stopped flowing, I could feel my own run down my face and into her belly. While I was hurting, my daughter was fed by another woman.
I was devastated. I knew I needed to grieve, and to heal. Not being able to nurse was a terrible loss for me. Then I found Precious Mammaries, and I knew that preserving my breastmilk would help me with this difficult transition. I chose to order a necklace. Preparing my milk for my necklace was an emotional moment. I knew it was the beginning of the end. When I received my necklace in the mail, I felt such a release. I wear it close to my heart every day, as a reminder that I am a breastfeeding mother. Even though it was hard, and even though it didn’t go as planned, I am a breastfeeding mother, and I deserve to wear that badge with pride. My breastmilk necklace is my badge. Thank you, Rachel, for giving me that gift.

Looking for video reviews of satisfied and happy customers of Precious Mammaries’ breast milk jewelry and keepsakes? If you’re like me, I like to see actual smiles. Look no further. Here is our very first video review from a mama who has the Milk Drop breast milk necklace in sterling silver:
The milk drop breast milk necklace is one of the best selling jewelry pieces in the store. It’s dainty, cute, and simple but beautifully elegant. It goes with just about anything you wear. It’s not too loud, not too boring. In fact, the closer you look, the louder it gets. Why? Because your milk turned into stone has a texture that’s unique to you. Amazing, isn’t it?
It’s not too loud, not too boring. In fact, the closer you look, the louder it gets. Why? Because your milk turned into stone has a texture that’s unique to you. Amazing, isn’t it? This texture is your milk’s imprint. A lot of other breast milk pendants are dull in appearance, especially the kind that gets made with DIY breast milk jewelry kits.
Here is another mama mentioning the texture of her Milk Drop necklace made by yours truly:
The Milk Drop necklace also got a recent upgrade! It’s still in the same shape and dainty size but now has prongs to secure the stone and a bit thicker in the back! This way, the stone appears less flat and more 3D, giving it a substantial feeling when held. It’s also now made in your choice of sterling silver plate or 14k gold plate instead of stainless, giving this pendant a more vibrant and shinier appearance!
Previous customers who bought the Milk Drop necklace in the old style can get a reasonably priced upgrade (or face lift!) for a limited time! You can upgrade pendants for $15 for sterling with prongs. That’s it! I want every mama who wears this pendant to be very happy with their necklace.
If you’re a previous customer and want to add lock of hair to your pendant or change to 14k gold and keep the old milk stone, that’s also a simple upgrade that’s fairly reasonably priced. You can do this without having to pay double the amount you paid once before.
You can buy the the upgrade down below or if you’ve never owned a Milk Drop necklace from Precious Mammaries, you can own yours today with the two other links below (sterling/14k gold).
