Re: Have to go away for 8 or 9 days - will my LO forget how to latch?
Every mother and baby are different and no one can predict if your LO will wean while your away.
I completely understand wanting to be able to return home and being able to nurse your LO.
8 days without stimulating your milk supply will diminish it enough that your LO might not nurse b/c there will be no milk.
If you pump every day and he doesn't want to nurse you will probably not have uncomfortably full breasts for too long.
