i have to travel without my baby Labor Day weekend. Baby is 9 months old. I pump twice while I'm at work 4 days per week and nurse him the other times. I only have about 20 oz of milk in the freezer because I never built up a huge stash.
Is is it possible to pump enough so I can cover the time when I'm gone? How would I do that? I was considering adding a pumping session after he goes to bed but I know that time of day doesn't typically yield as much milk as morning. I just can't pump in the morning after I nurse him.
I already feel like I make barely enough so I'm wondering if my body will just make more if I add this session! Any experience with this or advice is appreciated.
Sorry if if there is a recent post about this. Please just direct me to that if I missed it.
