Re: 3 nights away from nursing 2-y-o - first time advice?
i was away for the same time as you, when ds was 20 months. we had *just* transitioned to not-nursing-all-night. i brought my pump, thinking i'd need to pump a lot but that i'd play it by ear to see when i got full, and i never did, not even once! i did not leave any milk at home either. of course it wouldn't hurt but i don't think it's really necessary and i've got other isht to do than pump ds picked right back up without a beat when i was back. he also nurses to sleep always, and he and DH figured it out while i was away.
i also found it really great to take a little unisom while i was away ... i'm so used to sleeping with ds that i had a hard time getting to sleep by myself, and that got me some MUCH needed deeper sleep.
