    Default First Overnight Trip

    I'm hyperventiliating!!! It's at the end of this month and it's just for one day. We nurse whenever we are together so here's what I'm wondering....do I need to pump to keep up my supply overnight?

    One night? Nah. If you are uncomfortable you could I suppose... personally I'd enjoy my night of peace.

    Where you goin'?!

    Thanks ladies....heading to Dallas (Mesquite). I'm more worried for DH - no bedtime nursing for Kaia. She's going to torture the crap out of him.

    At almost 21 mo your supply is probably pretty well established ... but I'm not totally sure?

    Do you have a hand pump you can bring? I'm thinking that I'd get uncomfortable ....

    Was planning on bring that for sure. Should I even bother lugging the milk back?

    Funny You might want to pump just to release the pressure. Manual pump really comes in handy.
