Do you go on overnight trips without your toddler? If so, do you pump while gone?


My mom wants me to go to a dance convention in January, but I've refused. I don't want to leave DH in the position of putting Audrey to bed without booby. She doesn't handle it well. I also don't want to have to pump for my nearly 2 year old so I can do a dance thing.
thanks to cavewoman for my fantastic siggie!
Are you breastfeeding a toddler?

I honestly can't imagine leaving Joey overnight somewhere without me. Maybe once she was weaned...

yes i went away 2x. the 1st was when he was 14 months old. i went to visit my BFF in VT when she had her baby. i was away for 2 nights (jacob was with my parents), and i pumped. the 2nd was in sept when jacob was 19 months old. DH and i went to a wedding and stayed overnight. i didn't pump. i missed the bedtime feeding and the next morning feeding. i normally don't nurse mid-day, but i was so full and ready to feed when we got home and jacob woke up from his nap (my parents watched him again).

I have never been away from Thuya during the night. He doesn't nurse at night anymore but he does have a major session when he wakes up.

If you don't feel right about going then don't.

Nope. I haven't been away from Graysen overnight yet and I sold my pump so I have no back up.

I have only actually been away from my older DS the night I was in the hospital having DD.
