Hi there, I've moved your post so you can have own topic and get more advice this way!
First: welcome to breastbuddies! I hope you will enjoy your stay! :aww:
How much is your 11 month breastfeeding during the day?
How are you with expressing milk? How much can you pump in one go and how often would you be able to express during this week and how often would you be able to pump when you will be away?
I'm asking because your answers will let me get clear picture- how much milk you will need to leave for LO and how to take care of your supply while you are away. Also answering how much you can get in one expressing session will let me estimate how often you'll need to express before you'll go away.

To shedd some light before you will answer: baby needs around 24-28 oz of bm in 24 hours, so it would be the best to leave 2X28 oz- if you'll be away for 2x24 hours and so on.
Then when you are away you could express when you would normally bf your baby- this way your milk supply will stay unaffected.

Also: is your baby used to bottles? Will she drink from sippy cup?


cheers And how lucky you are to be able to get away!!!!Can I go too Wink
