    Exclamation Forgot my pump

    Ok so what in the world am I suppose to do... it's like a 30min drive to my house, so I really don't want to go all the way home... I may have to take a 1/2 day vacation, which I don't want to...

    What will happen if I can't pump/nurse until 2:45? I feed and pump this morning at 5am.. I am ususally doing my first session by now....

    I don't know but that is unfortunate. If I were in your shoes I would go get the pump, b/c otherwise I would be a nervous nelly all day long...can anyone meet you halfway?

    Third it! I had to do that a couple of times when I forgot my pump. If only to relieve engorgement. Worth a try.

    I can hand express...so just so it in the sink...no way of "catching" the milk... Will this effect my supply? Should I just go home...DH is getting DSD ready for school, then he will be going to drop other two off so he can go to work...

    I forgot my pump a few times. I hand expressed often just to alleviate any pressure and to not mess up my supply too awful bad. One day won't totally screw up your supply. But I hated seeing all that milk disappear.

    Ok so after I got home, I hand expressed (DH put pump in lo bag and he was still at my moms). I got about 2-3 oz out. Then I pumped twice more and nursed him like normal...

    QUESTION - would that casue my supply to go down? I can hardly pump anything today.
