Everyone wants parenting advice from Jessica Alba. Why? Because in addition to her thriving Hollywood career (she recently filmed the pilot for L.A.’s Finest) and major CEO success at The Honest Company, she’s a natural born mom-in-chief.
InStyle’s July cover star has three children with husband Cash Warren—Honor, 10, Haven, 6, and Hayes, 7 months—which means she’s got her mothering skills down pat. But Alba’s willing to share. In the video at top, she goes there, offering candid advice for new moms and revealing her favorite, stress-reducing parenting gadgets.
First up? Breast pumping. Alba prefers to use an electric-style machine to get the job done. “There’s machines now. Why would you do it manually? I mean, just imagine this for like 45 minutes,” she says in the video at top, pumping a manual device in an annoyingly monotonous (and hilarious) manner.
