Do you always wear your nursing necklace? Or just when you nurse?

I think I'm getting one for my birthday (
) and I was wondering...

If you wear it all the time does it lose its appeal (to baby)? 8 mo old dd is easily distracted and I hope this will make it easier to actually finish a nursing session in one sitting rather than a few sucks here, play, a few more sucks, etc.
I am kinda hoping that ya'll will say they don't get bored with it because I'm rather forgetful and if I have to remember to put it on each time, well, it just might not get worn a lot.

Thanks ladies!

Mostly I wear mine all the time. Though sometimes it's a distraction from nursing too.... sigh...

I wear my for about a week before it gets boring for Jett. Then, I take it off for a few days and let the novelty of it return.

We go through this cycle consistently. It works well for us. If we had extra money, I would get a few very different looking necklaces and rotate them, both for my wardrobe and for Jett's amusement. As it is, I got one gorgeous one from and would highly recommend hers. So beautiful!!

ETA: Like Angela, sometimes the necklace is too much distraction. You can't ALWAYS win, I guess. It's way more of a help, than a hinderance, though.
i made some and love them i wake up and put it on its just like my underwear i wear it everyday but i have 3 and change them so ds can have something new to look at

I wear mine every day. DS doesn't always play with it, but he does fairly often. When he's sitting on my hip, he likes to hang onto it

Thanks for the replies.
The one I'm getting is from Her stuff is sooo pretty!
I think I'll make one too, just to have a change if Ella gets bored.

I only wear mine now and then so she stays pretty interested in it, need to get another one so I can go between them!
I wear mine when it works well with my outfit

I got out of wearing necklaces with my first child due to him pulling on it. I also got out of the habit of wearing my dangly earrings, a watch, and my diamond engagement ring (it caught on his tummy pinning diapers).

My dd likes my NN, but I don't wear it every day. Mostly Sunday to church or when I'm going out and I remember it. :LOL
