I'm doing a girls day out for mine and a friend's birthday where we'll be gone close to 12 hours. Vinny still eats every 2 hours so I'm wondering about pumping while I'm out. I live in Japan so there won't be lots of places to go to pump and I'm not sure what to do about storing it. I won't have a car nearby because we are taking the train everywhere. What would you do in this situation? Would you just pump when you got home or try and pump while out?

this is just me but I'd pump while out n about just b/c I dont want anything to happen to my supply and I would hurt sooooo bad if I waited that long. can you bring like a small mini cooler of some sort? do you have a manual pump? or you can hand express?
I think if he nomally eats every 2 hours, trying to go 12 without pumping will leave you in a lot of pain. I can go 10 hours overnight, but it would be hard for me to do that during the day. Usually after 6 I'd be feeling some discomfort.
