Once I started pumping more often, I started producing more milk. I bought a few breastmilk storage bags for easy storage and transport of breast milk.
Factors you should consider before making your decision:

There are almost 25 different brands of baby bottles available in the market, and it can be quite daunting to choose the best one for our baby. Some of the major manufacturers of baby bottles are Philips AVENT , Dr. Brown’s, Playtex, Evenflo, NUK, The First Years, Munchkin, Nuby, etc. My choice in bottles was based on a few simple factors that I have explained below. I have used Medela, Philips, and Nuby and here are my experiences.
After almost 15 hours of labor (and more than 18 hours of waiting for labor to start!), my adorable baby boy was born mid-August in 2013 in a hospital in Pennsylvania at around 3pm on a Thursday afternoon. The doctor immediately placed him on my chest for the “golden hour” of bonding between the three of us – my husband, me and the baby. And I was in love.
