It can be very difficult for a new mom to return to work when her maternity leave is over, and there is a great mix of emotions that accompany this transition. On one hand, she might be enthusiastic about returning to a job that she loves and excited to be able to get out of the house again. On the other hand, however, she almost always feels guilty about leaving her child with anyone, even if it is someone that she trusts emphatically.

When breast feeding your baby, sometimes you need a little helping hand. Perhaps you don't want to feed in public but of course, your baby will require feeding if you go out and about. Or perhaps you need some time out from baby and hubby or relative is going to take care of your little one for you. Pumping and storing your milk is a great idea to help solve these problems. But are all breast pumps created equal? No! There are some absolute shockers out there which can make expressing so frustrating and annoying. Luckily Medela are perhaps the most innovative company on the planet, making exceptional products. I recently tested out the Harmony manual breast pump.

The World Health Organization asserts that “breast milk is the ideal food for the healthy growth and development of infants,” encouraging new mothers to exclusively breastfeed their babies for the first six months of life. When new moms work outside of the home, however, many opt to pump and store their breast milk so that nannies and other childcare providers can continue providing their child with the most nutritious possible food source during this crucial time. These nannies are then tasked with the responsibility of properly handling the bottled breast milk, and understanding the best methods for storage.
