I'm so there really lots of great benefits beyond the bonding dancing with your baby liners when I know there are a lot of different schools of fighting effort to each woman it's into the apple. But heading into one thing I didn't realize is a lot of women told me. It'll harder than anything. There's a lot involved there props which we're gonna get to you exactly it's not always easy.

So concert grade one of the great new development about breast pumps as that they're now covered by the affordable care and love that. A lot of my I'm actually still don't know about the benefit that most moms can get a fully covered press time no cocaine no deductible insurance plan just iron share.

With the number one tip there which and instead just call your insurance and I wherever they are and ask yes again I ate some and he knew that hit and that I was gonna register for you know yet. And so many. Educated and just don't get so overwhelming this it's just overwhelming big don't really going to start to pass that on the one month email Alan mommy called air injuring company Astra. OK I spell out and there are lots of great models and some people say Al but the models that you buy in the store for an apartment dollars. I'm their much better they're actually just the same owner now a lot of the time they will have 1000 west all. And that's you're paying for and that you know you that on your gift registry. But the motors for the ones that you get through insurance the same as the land of ice to take what you can get and then add onto it. Yes so is there and we took out some of the accessories that this is the basic water. I'm you know this is really and you are ridiculous spot Bentley Pippen. So this is one of breast and looked at him by. Compact. Where you get it quickly so knees and we didn't actually things to add that these will be attached. These will be attached to brass in Willie you're actually shall mean when it is at this goes on your bid. That doesn't and it just pumps. It just ponds and I'm. Actually ended his website and it can be extremely overwhelming. About speeding. Up sister are. No light. It's normal spell and another thing you started educate yourself take a deep brat watching YouTube video watching activity out exactly. This is another. We purposefully chose the red.

When you start using your. You pumped right away he did it be music you and you need to get past. You really knew right away.

Sometimes it's helpful to pump still in store milk eggs even if you're not giving it to baby especially through an act where a line store now part of it actually works who are here caretaker is conducted in the past OK yes that's an area. And today there's all different types of bottles. And anti. And gas you know blast past act. I'm certain. But my. So I'm new a lot of people and it's reasonable compared but he easily take the bottle beat the press when it was about. So again. Well just advise you to add to that a eight day in the beginning. We needed to use the bottom because it's going to be much easier. First of its heart but maybe it makes the baby work. Baby's stuck paying makes the need to use his or her job. Eight mile an easier to summon also told me. Don't go in stock up on models before you know on your likes. Try a bottle they like it and then go get more exact same thing hires based.
