Re: away from ebf baby for a day.. what to do?

I have a little bit longer then you as I have to be away from my new babe for a work thing one day (Dec 6) during my maternity leave. I've already started pumping and saving 1/2-1 oz every day for the freezer stash. I plan to take my pump with me that day (it is a conference) and save my milk in a cooler. I told work if they couldn't provide a pumping area, I wasn't going to come since I am technically home until Jan 11th.

For you, you've got to try to pump a little and save it over the next few days. Then mix with formula and pump while you are gone. Even if you have to dump it, you can't stay engorged all day. It will be uncomfortable and might lead to infection.
