I have an event coming up that means I will be away from bub for 3 feeds. I have stock piled expressed milk for Grandma to give her and will be taking a pump with me to the event.
What I am not sure about is how much milk to pump at the event and when to do it. As I won't have any way of storing the milk I will be "dumping" it.
So, do I have to pump until both breasts are empty or just enough to reduce fullness? And do I have to pump when I usually would feed, or just when I start to get uncomfortable? If baby will be getting 3 bottles, can I just pump twice or do I need to match what bub usually gets. I am so confused!!!
If it makes it easier, bub usually feeds at 2pm, 5pm and 7pm and midnight. I am traveling in a cab 1.30-2.30, busy 2.30-4, free 4-6, dinner etc 6 onwards and I am planning on being home in time to do that last feed.
Can someone help me work out how to do this??
