I have to go on a work trip next week . I will be gone about 36 hrs total, so I will miss the second morning nursing session, the two evening nursing sessions, one overnight and two the following morning. Wow, it seems like a lot now that I write them out, but I guess that's 6 sessions and I feed only from one side each session, so 3 each boob. I stopped pumping during the day at 12 months, so my body is used to not making milk during the day.
My question is: do I need to take my pump? Am I going to be totally engorged when I get back if I don't?
I really do not want to take it, if possible. I am traveling with all my co-workers and we are flying in, going straight to the meetings, meetings all day, hotel at night, back to meetings and then flying out. There would be time to pump (at least one other colleague is BF, too ) but I would really rather not take the pump out of storage if I can help it
