I will be going on a week long work trip early March. Right now my LO is 9 months and I pump 3x/day which keeps me right at pace with the 24oz he drinks each day. (We were only able to EP)
My pump schedule is 5am, 1pm, 8pm. It is going to be really hard to fit in the lunch time pump session during my trip. I was thinking I might be able to drop to 2 sessions per day for a couple weeks and then go back to 3x/day when I return.
Has anyone done something similar?
How much do you think my daily supply will drop?
Is my milk production likely to get back to 24oz/day quickly?
I am okay if we have to use a little formula and we have about 3-4 weeks of a frozen milk stash to use. However, I would rather not switch him over to much formula so we can get closer to a year. Any suggestions or ideas?
