Encourage daddy time. The greatest untapped resource available for improving the lives of our children is time with Dad - early and often. Kids with engaged fathers do better in school, problem-solve more successfully, and generally cope better with whatever life throws at them.

Kate Hudson is just like many nursing moms returning back to her daily routine after giving birth -- she's trying to figure out the perfect balance between breastfeeding and work.

Hudson gave birth to her third child, Rani Rose, in early October.

In an interview with Today , the mom of three opened up about being named the new global ambassador for WW (formerly known as Weight Watchers), her health and breastfeeding.

"I'm trying to figure out how to balance the breastfeeding and the work," said Hudson.

Savannah Guthrie chimed in and said she understands that many moms goes through this tricky balancing act.

"Even moms that have multiple kids, it's just hard," Hudson replied. "I mean it's just hard -- and the pumping -- look I have one friend who's like a milk machine. I wish I was a milk machine, I'm not. I need to pump."

It seems like the Oscar-nominated actress is handling it well though as she shared that she was "pump ready" with her social media followers. Hudson uploaded a photo of herself lounging in a chair with a breast-pump bag beside her.

Katie Holmes (mom to daughter Suri): “I’ve never met a 2-year-old who is terrible. I’m so cool with every stage my daughter goes through. I just think she’s amazing. I hope she’s not looking at me thinking, Mom, are the terrible 30s coming on with you?”
