Pumping and storing breast milk can help provide a stay-at-home mom with the chance to have time for her.
Once she returns to work, keeping up her supply of breast milk can be more of a challenge. She will need to keep her milk supply by continuing to pump and collect breast milk for her child to use while she is at work.

However, good planning, support, and the correct equipment can help a woman continue to breastfeed, even after returning to work outside the home.
Ever since I went to France to learn french ten years ago, I changed from a cheese-hater into a cheese-lover. How could I not!
Everyday for three weeks my host parents (Les Delforges de Reims) indulged me with french food, and closed the lengthy dinner session (which can last up to two hours) with a plate of various cheese, consisted of different kinds of cheese, from
Camembert, Brie, swiss cheese which has holes in it, blue cheese, smelly cheese, etc.
It was quite challenging, but if I want to learn about the french, I gotta eat what they eat. Until now, my favorite is Camembert Cheese which should be slightly aged.
Breast Milk is Best
Breast milk has the perfect combination of proteins, fats, vitamins, and carbohydrates. There is nothing better for the health of your baby.
Leukocytes are living cells that are only found in breast milk. They help fight infection. It is the antibodies, living cells, enzymes, and hormones that make breast milk ideal. These cannot be added to formula.
How do I use a breast pump?
To use an electric pump, you put a breast phalange (or shield) over your nipple, turn the machine on, and let it do the work of suctioning your milk into an attached container. (Phalanges are supplied with the pump.)
Manual pumps also use a phalange, but you extract the milk by operating a squeeze mechanism or pulling a plunger with your hand rather than relying on a motor.
It usually takes ten to 15 minutes to pump both breasts with a good electric pump and up to 45 minutes with a hand pump.
Good breast pumps mimic the sucking action of a baby and won’t cause you pain. Be sure to use the right size phalanges for your nipples and position them just right so you don’t pinch or irritate yourself.
Breast Milk Expression Tips
1. Always wash your hands before expressing or handling your milk.
2. When looking for an electric pump to buy or rent, look for one that creates a milking action and is not only sucking device.
3. One way to save time is to look at pumps that express milk from both breasts at the same time.
4. Be sure that the pump can be easily disassembled and all parts that come into contact with skin or breast milk can be easily cleaned.
Benefits of Breastfeeding
Breast milk is a unique nutritional source that cannot adequately be replaced by any other food, including infant formula. Although pollutants can accumulate in breast milk, it remains superior to infant formula from the perspective of the overall health of both mother and child.
Infants are fragile and susceptible to disease, partly because their bodies are not fully developed.
