Traveling out of state for work - what to do about bottles

My DS is 9 months old (tomorrow!). In two weeks I have to travel for work and will be gone 4 days. I plan to pump while I'm gone to keep up my supply. Unfortunately I will have to throw the milk (that might just kill me) as there is not a place to refrigerate it. :( Right now, I am down to one pump at work and supplement a few ounces of formula in the two bottles he takes from the nanny.  The small freezer stash I have left won't last the whole time I'm gone.  Should I have them do 1/2 BM 1/2 formula until the BM is gone? Or just use the BM and give him formula when it's gone? Didn't know if it would make a difference either way.

    I travel a lot and the hotel will provide me with a fridge free of cost if there is not one in the room.  As for your question s ce he has had formula don't think it will matter either way

    I would definitely ask for a fridge in the room. 

    Personally, I prefer to keep breastmilk separate from other milks in the bottle so that it can be offered and finished before any other milk. At 9 months, my daughter really reduced her milk intake and I had to start making mini-bottles to minimize waste.

    They are charging me $25 for a fridge in my room for breastmilk. I would ask the hotel if they have that option available. Totally worth it, even for a small fee!
