Going to an NFL game...pumping?
DH and I are going to a football game today. We haven't had a date in a LONG time, I am excited. The kids are staying with my parents. I have about 7 ounces pumped, I plan to put it in 2 separate bottle for mom. I also have 4 more bags of 2.5 oz each frozen, so I will probably bring one or two of those as back up too. So I am sure there's plenty of milk for him, even if mom overfeeds by mistake (despite all three of my younger ones being BF, and her babysitting often, she still struggles with bottle feeding a BF baby.)
So baby is taken care of, but my question is about my time at the game. I expect to nurse the baby at 10:30, leave the house at 11 to drop them off at mom's, in order to get to the stadium early for the 1pm game. I expect the game to end between 3:30 and 4. That means getting back to pick up the kids from mom's between 4:30 and 5pm. That's 6 to 6.5 hrs between nursing the baby and getting back home. I was thinking last night that going that long once in a while wouldn't be too bad, but he ended up sleeping from midnight until 7am. And actually, he's still asleep, I woke up at 7 and kinda woke him up and fed him anyway.
So, I am asking for advice on pumping at a NFL game. Anyone done that? Am I going to need to go out to my car? Should I try to go ahead and manage to go all 6 hrs? Should I just pump as soon as we arrive at the stadium ( around 12:30) and then just leave the pump in the car? That's probably the most logical solution. But if there's a private place to pump, doing so at halftime might work out better. I just dunno. Anyone with advice?
