    If it were me I would continue. By 9 months you won't be feeding that often and I think it will be hard for her to be away from you for 2 weeks as it is - to be able to resume bf'ing when you get back would be wonderful.

    Yes, sorry I was just talking about a normal freezer. In deep freeze it can be kept for 6-12 months.

    There is a table on storing it on this site:

    Yup, a freezer that doesn't have afoot that gets opened regularly. Breastmilk stays safe for at least a year, but some of the nutrients might break down as time goes by. By nine months she will be using a cup, so don't worry about bottles. Two weeks milk for a 9 month old would be approximately 400-500 ml a day, 7 litres or so. Express 100ml a day for 3. Months and you'll be fine. Or just pump and dump whilst you are away and give formula. She'll re calibrate your supply when you get back.
