I love this forum, has helped me with sooo much! I need some help.
I've been pumping 2 - 3 times while at work. I can only manage to pump every 4 hours, so far the output has been pretty good. My 6-month old (today ) is gaining well & we have just started solids. I've been considering supplementing, due to work getting more & more hectic, plus with me having to be outdoors for events soon. But it's kinda heartbreaking, since we've gone this long.
Here's the thing: This weekend we have a big event. First big one since i came back to work mid-January. I'll be at an outdoor festival from 1pm - 2am, without a place to pump. Even if i manage to find a place (and time!), there won't be a place to store since my ice packs will only last 6hrs tops. Will not pumping that long affect my supply drastically? This is only number 1 out of a few more no-pumping events to come.
