Best Double Electric Breast Pump for Working Mothers

Mothers who have to pump their breast milk at least once a day should consider investing in a double electric breast pump. This device is very useful especially for working mothers who need to drain their breast effectively to maintain their breast milk supply. A double electric pump saves time because both breasts can be pumped at once, instead of only one side at a time. It is also portable and durable enough to withstand frequent travel to the office.

Some double pumps are battery-powered. A few manual pumps also exist. These types of double breast pumps have lower suctioning power, particularly the manual type. The manual types can be tiring to use if breast milk has to be expressed regularly. Electric models are sturdier and more reliable but can cost a few hundred dollars. Hospital models are the most reliable and effective and they can be easily converted to double.

A double pump consists of suctioning equipment that uses two cups. This type saves time and prevents milk from being wasted. Because both breasts are in cups, milk leaking from the breasts is automatically saved in the milk collection apparatus.

The Playtex Embrace comes with a hospital-grade motor. It features unique soft breast cups that give a realistic feel of a baby’s mouth. The pump has five suction and speed levels and comes with a carrying case.

What are some male/female double standards?

What are some male/female double standards?
Here’s mine: If the woman stays home to take care of the kids/house while the husband goes out alone, she is just “doing her job” as a mother/wife. But let HIM do it…and he’s “babysitting” his own kids!

When a woman acts in an aggressive way, it is hormones. When a guy does it, he’s an @sshole.

The only people I hear use that phrase is men. What women say is “why is it that I’m a mother and supposed to take care of them, but he’s a babysitter?”

This, by far, is the most interesting question I personally ever heard anyone ask. Especially today Ive been thinking alot about hipocracy. With the pres. race and all going on.
My new job at the high school.

So I do see a few kids that chew tobacco. I chew tabacco.
how do I really tell them not to chew tobacco, when the Industry is top ten in business?

I drink, dont see that at school but hear alot about it.

Drug and alcohol are top ten money makers.

Ive done it all but cant convice these kids not too cause its too powerfull.

AS far as a man and a womens hipocracy with each other, I call it failure to communicate. If I was scared of you I would tell you what I wanted you to do.

If I was interested in you, I would watch what you DO do.

IF I love you, what you do does not matter. I trust you, your free.

dbl standard. Nature of relationships. You can do what I cant because my heart pushes you instead of me.?

Answer by Always Right
Yes, to some your example would be a double standard. However, just last night I stayed home with the kids and I am working from home and spending time with my kids. 60% of my work is done from home. I do not consider myself to have been babysitting my own kids last night while my wife went out with the girls from work. Those who have a double standard are worried about what they would be doing, more than what their spouse is doing. I guess they just assume their spouse is up to no good, because they would be. There are some double standards, as far as your example, but my wife considers it my job to take the vehicles to the gas station and put gas in them, while she takes the responsibility of grocery shopping and buying clothes for our daughters. If I keep screwing up the laundry, she may take that responsibility from me also, being that she has the time to check the clothes before drying grass stains into them. I didn’t even know I was supposed to check them. One thing that does not happen at my house is any stereotypes. I am all but a stay at home dad, while my wife drags way more money in here than I do. We don’t consider anything really major to be male or female.
