I have to leave her! How much to pump?

Ok, ladies...I need some guidance. I am having a dental emergency and have to go in first thing tomorrow morning. I have never left my baby long enough to need a feeding. I am pretty sure she will take a bottle, cause I had DH do it once about a month ago (after one of those "what would happen if you were hit by a bus" conversations) and she did fine. I really have no idea how much to pump. She is 7 months old. 5 ounces?

My 6 mo eats about 5 oz at a feeding, and she is probably 13.5 lbs. She is not EBF anymore, though.

What are you having done to your teeth?

I had a dental emergency when my son was about 10 weeks and I just nursed him right before I left and nursed as soon as I got back. I was gone for almost 2 hours. I probably could have pumped but knew he'd be OK for that short of time. If I had been gone for more than 2, though, I DEF would have left some milk.

It was a crown prep that I had, btw.

just nurse before you leave and leave 2 bottles w/ 5 oz. Thats enough to last til you get home.
