Re: Away from 12 month old - supply questions
There's no way to tell how 4 days of relying on the pump will affect you. On the one hand, you've been nursing for 12 months and that means your supply is not as fragile as when your baby was brand new. But on the other hand, all moms respond differently to hiatuses in nursing and to pumping in pls of nursing... I would simply pump as much as possible while you're gone, nurse on demand at night, and trust that your baby will be able to boost your supply back up when you get home.
