Re: EP temporarily for a vacation
Is there any way you can take her with you on vacation?
9 days is a really long time to be away from a 5 month old, especially when you are nursing. You need go into it with the knowledge that it is very possible that she will wean while you are away. Pumping every 3 hours or so (at night maybe every 4-5 hours) will keep your supply going and if she will nurse when you get back you may be able to build it back up to where it was but I think no matter what your supply will take a pretty major hit. It will take work to get it back up and get her back to the breast when you get back.
