Re: Stressed about upcoming work trip...
I feel for you. Although i did bring my baby and husband (freq flyer miles for his ticket) for a work trip to canada when dd was 6 mos I still had to pump during the work day while they were on their own. I brought frozen milk for their first day. Carried it on in dry nice in a small cooler case. I arranged for a mini fridge/freezer for the hotel room and I had some mini ice packs and a storage case for daily transport. I stored the milk I pumped in the lanisoh bags, and since I didn't need the milk I pumped before traveling home since I nursed on the plane I froze it. For travel back I put it in the case with the ice packs. I put the whole case in a large plastic zip bag and put it in my checked bag. I figured during the winter luggage stays pretty cold under the plane. That was a long trip and it was still frozen upon our return home.
