Belly Beads Lactation Tool
Snugabell’s Belly Beads are an effective and beautiful visual teaching tool for lactation professionals, suitable for both a group and individual setting. The three beads represent a newborn’s stomach size on day one, day three, and day ten, as referenced on the attached belly disc. This tool makes it easy for new parents to visualize how little milk baby actually needs, as well as why newborns eat so frequently. This reinforces that supplements are not needed and that colostrum, the first milk, is more than enough to meet a newborn’s needs. Belly Beads are also effective in showing pumping and formula-feeding moms the appropriate amount to feed by bottle.
