Owen is 2 yrs old and nurses when he wakes up in the morning, before and after nap, and before bedtime. Sometimes he'll nurse one additional time during the day.
The kids and I are going to visit my parents and I will be leaving the kids with them for about 36 hours (my sisters and I are going to NYC for an overnight and to do a few things, and it's a 4hr drive each way from my parents, so I think 36 hours is about right).
I haven't been away from him (minus his NICU time) for more than 4 hours. I do have a good milk supply, always have, but I figured I'd be fine not pumping while I'm gone. My girlfriend asked if I was bringing my pump and I said I wasn't and I thought I'd be fine and I don't want to carry it with me on the planes and in the airports, I have enough to carry plus both kids by myself, but she said she thinks I'll need to pump. I figure if I am super uncomfortable, I can hand express. I don't have experience being away from him though so I don't know.
What do you think?
