If you use the bathroom... make sure you tell the flight attendant what you're going to be doing and the duration

one other thing... you might look into is the local Human milk for human babies near the resort you're going to be at... you could also check w/the mexican milk banks..

here's a link http://www.breastfeedingsymbol.org/2011/03/15/human-milk-4-human-babies/

Here's the FB link for mexico http://www.facebook.com/LactanciaSolidariaMexico?sk=wall - you can post when you're going to be in the area and ~ how much milk you anticipate having... and some one will probably take you up on it.. they come to you...so they could pick up at the resort

I hope you have a good trip! I think I'd like to be traveling to mexico this time of year ;)

I agree with everything Gigi has said. I was also going to say try to pump every 3 hours during the day and a longer stretch overnight. Since you do have a big freezer stash, you'll have some flexibility if your supply drops a little; you can nurse nurse nurse when you get home and have the backup for bottles if you need it.

I never traveled w/o the baby, so I never had to pump in the airplane but Gigi had some good advice about that :)

Safe trip!

I don't see any reason why you can't drink... I've had the occasional gf beer or wine 2-3x/week after I checked out of the hospital... but I never got drunk.... why not follow the following rule... if you're buzzed when you pump - toss it... donate the rest.
