Mum asks ring-shaming group for help choosing a breastfeeding ring

Nicole posted on the group, saying: ‘I want to get a breast milk ring made. I found a great website as suggested by other mums in a different group. Which one is best, if any? There are more options but these three are my favourites.

‘I don’t want opinions on the fact that it’s made with breast milk, I’m only looking for opinions on ring style.

‘I do not want opinions regarding breast milk or breastfeeding…but to shame only the ring styles, as this is a ring shaming group!’

People were confused by the message and continued to slate the choice.

‘Oh sweet summer child. This group hates breast milk rings. This group actually hates all rings,’ reminded one user. ‘There’s a group called That’s It, I’m Asking for Ring Advice for this very thing. If you don’t want to hear negative feedback on breastmilk rings (or any ring) this is the worst possible place you could come to.

‘Anyway, I’m gonna give my opinion regardless because that’s what this group is for – gross.’

In a similar vein, someone else wrote: ‘Might as well get a gallstone ring while you’re at it’.

Another said: ‘That’s the worst idea ever, even rings with teeth are better, and you hardly find anything worse than them.’

‘Just because you can doesn’t mean you should,’ quipped one member.

Nicole isn’t the first mum to commemorate breastfeeding her child through accessories.

First-time parent Erin Parnell also made jewellery out of breast milk to have a reminder of that special time.

To each their own.
