Re: help with weaning 16 month old
I would definitely recommend you bring your pump for your own comfort, not necessarily to keep your supply up. I went away for 2 days, 1 night and didn't bring my pump, thinking it would be no big deal (my lo was 18 mos). By the next morning I was uncomfortably full and by the time I got home that evening I was in serious pain!
My daughter did fine with her daddy (who was dreading my trip because she's a big night nurser). Like Shelly said, she understood that I wasn't there so she didn't cry for milk becuase she knew it wasn't available. She actually slept better than she usually does.
Good luck to you!
