all day rafting... EBF 6 mo

I have the opportunity to go rafting on a two day trip. I will be able to pump or maybe even nurse DS at night/morning, but during the day I'll not be able to pump while we're rafting down the river. Am I insane to try? will I be obscenely uncomfortable all day with engored breasts? would you?

Personally, I'd be okay if I could pump once in the middle of the day. If you can pull it off, go for it!

two days definately shouldnt effect your supply enough to discourage you from going...feed baby well before you leave..and pump a few days in advance to make you your stash is enough. but you probably will be quite engourged, but at your babys age, your milk suplly is already set, so you shouldnt be dealing with oversupply anymore, and so the pain really shouldnt be too substantial. pain from engorgement is caused by swelling, so if you do get alot of pain that isnt relieved by baby nurinsg, use a cool compress to help. hth

ok, i'll call the place and see if I'll be able to nurse the night/morning between rafting - I think DH would be able to come meet us.
