EP for the weekend!

My dd went out of town this weekend with my dh and her brothers. I have to ep all weekend, not a huge deal, i epd the first ten days of her life and then pumped tons and tons and tons the first four months. I however have grown to loath my pump and so I am sad to have to pump all weekend.

No advice needed, I know what to do, I just wanted to whine. I know some of you have to ep all the time and I greatly admire you because i don't know if I could. so sorry for whining, time to put on my big girl britches and suck it up


thanks for letting me whine

Re: EP for the weekend!

hey all!

I have to EP for about a 36-hour period this weekend -- I'm traveling out of town for a conference. It'll be my first trip away from my girl Anyone have any recommendations for how many bottles/bags I have to bring? She's about 3.5 months old now and still nursing on demand, so I couldn't tell you exactly how many times she nurses in a 24-hour period -- probably 6-7, but she'll sleep for several hours and then nurse three times in a 3-hour period.

I am not sure, mama. i have never left town without my baby, just had my baby leave me. Do you have plans on how you are caring for your milk. Bags will store flater.

if it were me, I would pump into my bottles and then store them in bags in the fridge so they don't take up as much space. I'd probably just pack a 50 pk even though i know i wouldn't need that much.

good luck, mama!
