Will she forget how to breastfeed or self wean?

my little one is 9.5 months and 80% of her diet us breast milk. She will take a bottle and cup but usually nurses. In 6 weeks I'm going out of town for 4 days ... I'm afraid she will self wean while I'm gone. Any advice?

Is there any way you can take her with you? You may want to start pumping and taking long breaks without her during the day so she and you can get used to it. DD is ebf and will not take a bottle or cup and doesn't eat solids. I'm a sahm so it's never been a problem, sorry I can't be helpful.
