Will my milk dry up?

My DD is 10 mmonths. we are on a road trip and we are so very far behind schedule and she hasn't nursed since 9 this morning. And yes I did feed her solids. I'm so scared my milk is going to dry up now. We will stop again soon and I will nurse her but I'm scared my milk won't recover :(

Is my milk going to dry up?

No, you'll be fine. She's old enough that your supply is well established.

No, just don't make it a habit. As long as you start nursing normally again soon then your milk will be fine.

No.

Calm down. It takes more than a day to dry up.

If you feel like you're lacking a bit make sure you drink lots of water and have her nurse often tomorrow

It might take a bit of a dip, but just nurse as often as possible and you will get it right back.

No you'll be fine. She might fuss at the boob for a day or two if your supply drops a bit to re establish supply for herself. Milk doesn't dry up completely for a year or more even after full weaning.

Ok thanks! She is my first baby, So I'm still trying to figure this all out.

Quoting blue.chairs: No, you'll be fine. She's old enough that your supply is well established.
