What are my options for travel with EBM for my dd? I need to travel interstate and then the next morning I will be leaving my dd for 7 hours and that's too long for her to go without a feed. And I'll be doing it again the next day too.
I will be traveling for at least 6 hours (including a flight) so I'm not at all confident about keeping the EBM fully frozen ... but any hints on this would be very appreciated. I suppose that would be my ideal ... taking EBM & keeping it frozen.
I've done a fair bit of travel 2 hours from home and taking EBM with me, but I take an Esky and put it in a good fridge/freezer when I get there. And if the EBM goes down with me and then comes back I feel anxious about using it in case it has defrosted a bit and then been refrozen and I don't feel confident about it at all.
My dd does go 5 hours without a feed and did manage 6 hours today, but 7+ hours is just going to be too much. I'm reluctant to offer formula and she'll only be just 11 months old so normal milk isn't going to work either.
