    Default Will I need a pump on my business trip?

    Next week I'll be gone for essentially 3 days away from DD. She's almost 2 and she nurses about twice per day (1st thing in the am and bedtime) but will sometimes skip an entire session or just take 1 breast... I do NOT feel full anymore - ever...

    Do I need to pack the pump?

    Do you have a small hand one you can bring just in case?

    No small hand pump - just the double electric... It's not too big, so I might just pack it to be safe...

    If you dont have a hand pump I personally would as I would feel full after three days. Do you do hand expressions?

    I've hand expressed a few times, but since I haven't much it's still easier with the pump...

    I think I would pack a pump. My little one nurses 4 times a day, but 2 of the sessions are usually pretty brief. I thought I would be o.k. for a quick over night trip, less than 24 hours... BOY WAS I WRONG!!!

    I have a little hand one (they are not too expensive) for times like this. (Also have my double electric pump )

    I left my DD once (she was like 20 mos) at time and used the hand pump like once day (in the morning). Since you do not have a hand pump you may want to bring your pump.
