Traveling for work - how to maintain supply

(3 posts)(3 voices)
  1. Hi Ladies,

    I am hoping some of you have been through this and can offer some tips.

    I pump exclusively for my 6 month old DS - about every 4 hours - and I recently found out I need to travel for business. Not only am I freaking out about being away from my baby, but I am also trying to figure out how I am going to pump in the airports in order to keep my supply up.

    I have the Medela In Style pump. My thought was to run it on batteries in the airport bathrooms and just dump the milk. Any suggestions or thoughts?

    Thanks in advance for your help,

  2. can your company sign you up for business class so you can use their lounges? maybe they have a somewhat nicer place to pump


  3. I would probably just bring a manual pump and pump when you have a chance. Missing one or two sessions once in awhile most likely will not have much impact on your supply.
