If you participated in the swap - did you use yours during labor?

My labor was short lived before my cesarean, so I didn't get to use mine as intended. I will be using them in my pregnancy/baby book for Liam though.

My kid pretty much shot out the second I hit the hospital...I literally only had time to strip in the bathroom before jumping in bed. I think I'll pull it out for a nursing necklace.

Same here. I was surprised that I did not have a chance to use them. But, they will be useful for nursing, and then, when he is older, I plan on giving them to him.

Any misspellings or grammatical errors in the above statement are intentional;
they are placed there for the amusement of those who like to point them out.

Yep!

You can see the necklace in all our pictures of the birth seen here.
