Breast milk is important to a baby's growth and development. When moms cannot breastfeed frequently, due to travel or work, breast pumping is the next best option to providing essential minerals found in breast milk. Handling breast pumps can be just as essential. If breast pump parts are not cared for properly mold and bacteria can build up. And if the parts are not cleaned or sanitized properly your baby can get sick.

Your nursing bra is your life line to sanity when your breasts swell from milk and make breastfeeding accessible every 2 hours, so you don't have to undress.
