We're going to take Melissa,our 6 yr old, to Disneyland at the end of August. Heather, our little one will be 10.5 months at that point. We're going to have my mom come stay with her. I've gone back and forth, but this is really the best option. Heather wouldn't be able to go on hardly any rides and I think the Melissa and me and hubby will have more fun if we don't have to take turns on the rides. Melissa has been such a great big sister and so good with the baby, this is kind of a 'special big sister' reward trip, plus we've really been wanting to take her. I'll have plenty of milk frozen by then, I already have about 175 oz or so. We'll be gone 3 nights.
So, here's the question. I'll bring my pump (I work full time and pump already) and plan on pumping pretty much every 3hrs or so. But, what do I do with the pumped milk. We'll have a hotel room with (hopefully with a small fridge/freezer). But we have to fly back (probably switch planes at least once). If I can find a way to freeze the milk, can I put it in a cooler bag and take it back on the plane? Maybe check it in? Or do I just need to dump it? I hate to dump 3 or so days worth of milk!
Any ideas or suggestions would be great. Also, anyone been to Disneyland and pumped? Are there any good places for that? We'll be staying right across the street, so I thought worst case I could go to the hotel and pump at lunch (we can eat there) and once in the afternoon while DH goes on rides with the 6 yr old.
