Okay. My son is 15 months old and is still nursing a ton. I am going to Las Vegas next week with DH for 3 days for a getaway : )
Lots of firsts here... first time away from baby.. first time to ever fly..
Any advice on traveling? I have a Medela Pump in Style and am planning on taking it and pumping as often as he nurses at home. I have plenty of frozen milk I am leaving. I am thinking about buying one of those giant bags you can buy in the freezer section at Walmart and putting gel packs that freeze down in it to put my milk in for flight home in my checked luggage maybe?
What about pumping on the plane? Anyone ever done that? Are there plug ins? I mean, I have the battery pack of course but the suction just isn't as good to me. We are laying over in Phoenix for an hour. Where should I pump there? Bathroom?
I think the breastpump doesn't count as a carry on because it's medical equipment.. We are flying Southwest.
Any input or advice/tips appreciated!!
I am sad to leave my baby!! We cosleep and nurse at night frequently.. This will be hard on us : (
oohh.. should I wake up at 4 am to pump? I mean, my milk supply is well established but...
