Reading & ListeningResearch shows that helping a toddler learn to read early on is extremely beneficial.

Additionally, his or her reading skills and vocabulary comprehension predict how well they will perform in the 11th grade. Overall, teaching a toddler to read at an early age stimulates his or her intellectual development and helps them become smarter.

Children are naturally very imaginative, creative, and capable human beings. While it is commonly believed that toddlers have an extremely short attention span, the truth is that when you really analyze them, it is obvious that they love to learn. For children, learning is a craving, an enjoyable activity, and often viewed as a form of playing.

breast feeding babyThe choice of choosing the right breast pump depends very much on your needs as a breastfeeding mother. The amount of milk you need to pump every day, your baby’s feeding habits and your personal schedule. Thus, one of the things you should look for when choosing the best breast pump is the power source that is handling the suction, how much suction will it develop, details about the suction and release cycle and how many of these cycles it can produce per minute. We will talk about the performance each type of breast pump can provide.

The details can make a difference

The hand pump is entirely controlled by you, so you will have complete power over regulating the suction. You either squeeze a pump, move a cylinder, and some even allow control by foot. The only inconvenient is that when you need to pump milk every day, for several times during the day, the process can be tiring and time-consuming. So breast pumps are not that efficient when you want to breastfeed exclusively and during extended periods.
