I am nursing my 7 mo old. I wana nurse for a few more months. Shes on solids 3x a day also. I went away for 2 days, 1 night and brought my pump along. I did this in the past but now its harder for me to pump as much. I did pump every couple hours getting one to a few ouncea each time. I took an 8 hour bus ride and half way thru hand expressed in the bathroom. Im stillon the bus now but very scared my milk is drying up b/c i feel this one area thats harder and squishy. Will i be able to build my supply back up wen i get home.. I know she wil continue nursing ive went away before. Can milk dry up that quick? Ive never had a prob with supply i had an oversupply or just the right amt. Anybody go away for a day or two and experience this?Answer Question

Your supply is really well established by now. A couple of days isn't going to dry you up. I've gone away like that and you don't feel engorged like you normally would around the baby, but that doesn't mean you're drying up. Don't worry about it. As soon as you are back together you'll be right back on track.
