I'm travelling w/o baby end of month for 5 days (shel be nine months) with hubby. First we thought of bringing her but with transit , early plane hours and extra costs it makes more sense to leave her, we also are in desperate need for time alone for our marriage. I still bf baby, she also eats and sometimes formula when not enough milk is available during day when I'm at work. I don't want to wean her yet, I'm terrified of milk drying up, especially since it's a bit less now that she's older and eats more. I'm planning on getting electric pump and even buying a manual one in case, any tips from mammas who went thru this before?
Also, any tips in general about first time away from baby wud be great, I'm still v emotional and a bit anxious about leaving her. Shel be staying with my parents who know her schedule and are great with her so that part's not worrying, I'm more anxious in terms of guilt or never having left baby more than a few hrs for part time work before..
