    Default Going out of town

    How should I keep up my milk supply while I'm out of town?

    Is pumping at the normal feeding times going to work?

    I'm going to be away from my daughter for 36 hours in Sept and then for a week in April.

    I just want to be prepared and do the right thing so my supply doesn't change.

    Thx!!

    pump as often as she would nurse, so if she nurses every 2-3 hours, pump every 2-3 hours if you can. i think you can also pump right before you go to bed and as soon as you wake up and that is ok too. just make sure to get it refrigerated. will you be leaving a supply with her while you are gone?

    I am trying to save up now for the trip in Sept, but for April, it will obviously take me longer.
