My baby girl is 7 weeks old. We had a rough start, but nursing is going GREAT!! I'll be going back to work in mid-August. I teach at a college and the most I'll have to be away each day is 4 hours She'll only need 1 bottle away from me a day!
I've been pumping and storing what extra milk I have in the freezer. I normally just pump in the evening or so and I get about 2.5oz a day. I've got probably 10 2.5oz bags in the freezer.
We're going to FAMILY CAMP next week and baby girl will be in the nursery for 3 hours at a time. Do you think I should bring some breastmilk from my frozen stash for her? Should I just pump each evening and give them what I have fresh? I'm worried I'll get dehydrated or something and wish I had the frozen breastmilk but, then again, if I'm nursing her right before I drop her off she shouldn't need much....
What do I do? I'm so proud to be exclusively breastfeeding and I've never had to deal with something like this! How do you handle being away?
