Leaving for the weekend, whats going to happen to my LO and nursing.
I'm in the military and i go back to drill weekends this month and normally i would just go to the armory and go home at night and be with her from at least 6pm to 6 or 7am. but the first month back we are going to the range for weapon qualifcation, so ill be away from 6pm fri to late sun. now this is at the end of the month so im trying to pump hard core to have enough for the whole weekend which is uping my supply too. but my worries are
1) how will my lo react to, no nursing to sleep. daddy will be watching her but he almost never puts her to bed unless he is carrying her in after i feed her. and she hasnt fallen asleep without me feeding her longer then maybe an hour. im really worried for SO.
2) im not sure i will have enough oppurtunities to pump while im away. i will be dealing with the military. they are not to caring about woman let alone a breastfeeding mom. i know people will say its the law but come on its the military, they will try to provide the best they can but all in all together we can only do what we can. so in 3 days could my supply drop if i can only pump every 4ish hours? and how horrible are my first few days back with my dd going to be, nursing all the time, im assuming?
