I am preparing for a work trip without my baby.
I have read all of the "tips" and tsa rules and I am feeling very stressed. I have plenty of milk at home for 4 month old baby to drink while I am gone, so that is a non-issue. I will be gone for 2 days.
I will need to pump to replace the stash he drinks and bring the milk home with me. I need to figure out the logistics of transporting the milk. I have a hydroflask insulated water bottle that is extremely good at keeping things cold over long periods of time. Would it be feasible to store the refrigerated/chilled milk in a container like this with reusable plastic ice cubes?
It seems easy in theory, I need to find out the real life logistics of doing it this way rather than lugging around a cooler and ice packs. I also want to try to be as discrete as possible because (as much as I really don't care) but breastmilk grosses my boss out and she will be traveling with me.
I have a spectra 2 double electric breast pump, so I'd need an outlet to use it, which should be fine. Would it be easier/better to buy a handheld pump and use that for the trip instead?
