To be disappointed that I can't order breastmilk cuff links?

I was browsing this website for breastmilk keepsakes and was so excited to see breastmilk cuff links on the homepage (2nd from the left in the line-up). Perfect present for DH for Father's Day! Sadly they only do pendants, charms and bangles. AIBU to be gutted?

have you emailed them and asked?

youmaycallmeSSP Sat 13-Apr-13 19:31:40

No. Worth a try though!

What a bizarre product!

ArtexMonkey Sat 13-Apr-13 19:39:07

Err, each to their own and all, but are you sure your dh is that bothered about your breastmilk? I'm sure he's a great dad and loves your dc and all, but i just don't know any men who would be into this. (And i don't live in a neanderthal enclave btw, it's all beards and baba ganouche as far as the eye can see)

Ask Claire who runs the website - she'll probably give it a go grin

PMSL at baba ganoush as far as the eye can see. Ditto, I have BF 3 dcs with full support from my DH, and a nice line in lentil weaving, but I can't see him sporting BM cufflinks somehow smile

Oh. I just asked and he doesn't want them sad I thought a pair in silver with footprints on a blue background would be lovely! Interesting talking point too.

TBH I did do a confused face when I first came across the website but now I want one!

How bizarre and odd.

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Sat 13-Apr-13 19:55:19

OMG!

They are pretty though...what a...novel idea.

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Sat 13-Apr-13 19:56:12

Will they be offering formula keepsakes too? If not, I will complain. I FF and want a frigging keepsake.

They have cuff links in the pics along the bottom.

Too amusing

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Sat 13-Apr-13 19:58:48

Having read about the makers' "process" I am more than slightly sceptical.

She says her method is secret...and she won't say how the milk is turned into "beads" and embedded in resin but safe to say I am more than slightly suspicious, she could dump the bag of BM and then just shove any old thing in the pendant! It only needs to be BM coloured!

grin

They are charms in the photo, not cuff links. I thought the one second-right was a belly bar too. Must go to Specsavers...

What about a pair of cufflinks with your DCs finger imprints on them? A few websites do them if you Google. I got my DH a pair for his first Father's Day smile

youmaycallmeSSP Sat 13-Apr-13 20:01:05

Maybe I could add food colouring to mine and check a sample against the finished product?

ENSMUM Sat 13-Apr-13 20:01:10

How odd! Really can't believe many people would want this?!

noblegiraffe Sat 13-Apr-13 20:01:17

Why would he want your bodily fluids in a trinket for Father's Day?

NeoMaxiZoomDweebie Sat 13-Apr-13 20:02:07

Do people really believe it IS breastmilk in those things??

youmaycallmeSSP Sat 13-Apr-13 20:02:51

I saw those LittleNutTree. I like those too. I'm secretly hankering after a Pandora bracelet so I can get the handprint and breastmilk charms blush

<scuttles off to NetHuns>

neo My first thought was that it was faked. Secret method?! grin

Smartiepants79 Sat 13-Apr-13 20:03:35

I thought I'd seen everything...!
My husband would think this was gross, and he is very pro breast feeding.
I cannot understand why anyone would want to preserve their bodily fluids!
