i am leaving on sunday to go out of state for for 5 nights not getting back into town until saturday. i nurse my son who is 7-8 months old and plan to continue once i get back.
the facilities i will be in during the week are not conducive for pumping (field training), it's possible that i will be in open barracks during my training, and don't believe there will be a facility near by for me to clean the parts to the pump between pumping.(let alone they don't promote lactating mother's to attend this course, but i need it and that's that.)
so my issue as you can see is i won't be able to pump from monday-friday early afternoon (when i am back in a clean area.) i have no problem pumping and dumping since flying eliminates any chance of storing the milk.
will i be able to reestablish the demand once i am back home with my son?
i have mother's milk tea that i plan to start drinking friday night before i fly out saturday morning. i will continue taking my prenatals. and once i am back in florida i know connor will be happy to see me (he preffers breast over bottle and will have been drinking formula all week.) he is on his solids (baby foods) 3 times a day and eats them very well. does this sound feasible?
please let me know i am not ready to ween just yet..
