Re: Can you temporarily wean for 10 days?
i thnk it's possible if it's necessary, but 10 days is a long time, both for you and for keeping the milk good. so i'd look seriously at taking the baby with you, and if that fails then think hard about what you're going to do with the milk. some people overnight the milk home in the middle of the trip so it can be frozen. pump & dump is so hard! but remember that breastmilk (or formula) still needs to be the primary food for your LO until 12 months, so you'll need to provide that.
