One more question - how do you travel with your pump?

I don't know airline regs but I think you're right on with pumping frequency. Every 3 hours during the day if you can, and if you can do every 4 in the motn when supply tends to be high, great. Make sure whomever is staying with DD knows about paced feedings.

Definitely bring the pump as a carry on so you can use it in the airport and on the plane if necessary. Can I assume you have a battery pack already? Here's a link with some good info on breastfeeding and traveling: http://www.mother-2-mother.com/bfandtraveling.htm. Will you be bringing a cooler so you can bring all the pumped milk back with you?

I have a Medela Freestyle so it has the rechargable battery pack.
