At the end of the month my DH and I are going on a week-long vacation and leaving our son with his grandparents. Counting travel days it'll be 7 days total. I've never been away from him for more than a night so I'm starting to have some serious anxiety about it-- I just want to make sure I leave enough frozen milk and that my supply doesn't diminish while I'm away.
At the time we'll be leaving him he'll be three weeks shy of a year. I'm a wahm so I don't know exactly how many oz he drinks a day, but I read on here that a 9-12 month old should get about 16-24oz/day. So if I aim to leave about 18-20 oz, would that be enough? Or is it okay if I leave less since he's almost a year and eats solids three times a day? I'm just so fuzzy about the whole thing!
Also, to keep my supply up when I'm away should I just pump whenever he would usually nurse? Thankfully I've never had any issues with low supply (although I had oversupply/OAL for the first three months) but I'm just nervous about being far away and losing my supply and not being able to do anything about it. And of course I'm afraid that he won't want to nurse when I get back..
Any help to ease my worries would be wonderful. Thanks ladies.
