My boyfriend really wants to take a night off and go camping but I'm still breastfeeding and I'm nervous it will affect my milk. My son still wakes up for feedings. Will I dry up from one night off?Answer Question

Take your baby with you.
If you arent't going to take your baby with you then you will have to pump or hand express. If you don't you will become engorged and/or milk is going to leak everywhere. You can get plugged ducts or a breast infection. Some babies won't take bottles. Some babies won't nurse again after their mothers have left them.
Breastfed babies can go camping, even tent camping. If nights are cold have your baby wear the right clothes and a hat and sleep with or next to you.

When my son was older I could skip about a day and a half before getting uncomfortable. A hand pump will work great to relieve the engorgement. Have fun :)
