Re: how to build up a stock ?
i'm with mommal. also, remember in another month you'll have DOUBLE the amount of practice you have now. nursing will be WAY easier, and therefore also easier to do discreetly. but practice hleps a lot too - in front of a mirror, in a room with a close friend, at a LLL meeting.
basically i think what we're saying is that it might well be much easier to figure out how to nurse in public than to save up enough breastmilk to carry you through this trip. honestly, that sounds like a nightmare to me. what if you run out? what if a bottle spoils? if there's any way at all we can help you figure out how to be comfortable nursing during the days, your trip will be immeasurably better.
