Re: Business trip & my almost gone stash
Since your baby is 16mos, and she's had milk before, it's not nearly the worry to have pumped milk available for her. So, if you have the inclination to leave enough pumped milk for her, and it works for your family, then do it. However, if it doesn't work out, and a human milk substitute will be offered, just make sure it's something she's had before, so no odd reactions happen while you're gone. You might consider asking DH to space out the feedings of human milk, so it lasts the whole time.
You might find that you'll need to express milk while you're apart, as your breasts will be used to making milk, and you want to stay comfortable!
