Want to pump baby is 6 mo
DH gets a free 2 day, 1 night trip with work and I'm dying to go! (and leave LO with BM with the grandparents)
Problem is that it's in a month and baby is 6 months old and has never had anything but breast!
I'm going to start trying sippy cups and will try bottles if I must... but I really need some tips about how to start pumping and how to get my supply up so i can have milk stored for when i leave.
does anyone have experience with this? what worked for you? what kind of pump is best (i'd like to bring the pump too so that i can keep my supply up while i'm gone).
any help would be greatly appreciated!
Re: Want to pump baby is 6 mo
To get that much milk that quickly you will need a hospital pump (you can rent one). You will also need to pump a lot. After every nursing session at the very least. It will be a lot of work and you may have trouble getting enough if you are one of those women who do not respond well to a pump.
Is there anyway you can take your baby with you?
Also you will want to poke around on here to look at the information about traveling with breast milk and storing it when you are away.
