feeling bad about pumping and dumping
I'm on a four day business trip in Canada, a long way from home in the U.S. Although I pump weaned when my daughter was 15 mos, i am still breastfeeding her (on demand when i am at home) at 20 mos and therefore am having to pump on my trip to avoid engorgement. I am so surprised to see all this milk pumping out, more than i expected to get from the pump. I guess it makes sense as she nurses quite a bit in the morning, evening and overnight. As I flush it down the toilet i am wondering if i should have arranged to donate locally, though we're only talking about 12 oz milk per day.
I've been here a day and I'm here 2 more and then fly out Thursday morning. Just curious what other moms would do.
