She will be fine. I've been on holiday plenty of times without the kids for. Weddings, or special occasions but we do usually take them. They stayed between our parents and they were fine. It also helps them have a little independence

Yes, I think she'll be fine. No, I don't think you will dry up if you keep pumping. Do you have enough pumped for her while you're gone? If you are EBF and she's not on bottles be prepared for her to refuse you when you get home because of nipple confusion. Lastly, I would never leave my BF child to go party. Ever. You can do whatever you want, but I just don't think it's fair to her.

I guess I should add, yes I've been on vacation without my kids plenty of times, but not until they were done breast feeding.
