I've been back at work for ~a month & my coworkers are already asking about upcoming business travel. As of right now, the first trip could be in Jan for 3 days & the next in Feb for 4. My LO will be 6 mo in Jan. I'm not the greatest pumper (usually ~3 oz total per session). I have ~35 oz in the freezer. Looking at Kelly mom, I calculated that I would need 30 oz per day I'm gone OR over 200 oz for the 2 trips. That's a lot of milk. I'm not sure what to do. My boss has been accommodating in a lot of ways so I'm nervous about asking for too much more. Aside from not wanting to leave my LO, the thought of pumping 7X a day while I'm gone is awful. These trips would require multi stop plane rides so I might even have to pump on the plane, which would be difficult. I should also mention that I've had clogged ducts even working part time & nursing my LO at lunch.
So, I guess I'm wondering what I should do right now. Do I have any case for saying that I cannot travel until LO is 12 months?
Appreciate your support!
