I'm traveling and I stil plan to pump 1x per day. I should have some fridge space, but very limited. How can I store milk without taking up too much space? And also travel home without it going bad (12 hr car ride). I know we can do a cooler with ice....but thinking about the fridge space offered to us its very tight. I usually pump 8-10 oz , so 40 oz I'll need to store. And possibly more depending on how many bottles we give since I'm sure relatives will want to feed her.

I would just pack a cooler with ice and have a special cooler just for that. If you pump into bags, they can store pretty flat.

i traveled a lot when i was bfing my daughter. i would use a cooler with a lot of ice for the car ride it should stay cool enough as long as the ice cubes don't melt, you'll probably have to refill the cooler a couple of times. you can do the same thing if you don't have enough fridge room for the milk. i kept my milk covered with ice in a cooler, but make sure it stays cold with fresh ice cubes.
