Light posting warning

Posting will be light around here for the next week. Besides the fact that this week is already completely kicking my butt, I will be traveling. Alone. For the first time since the baby arrived.

Surprisingly, I am not freaked out by this. (Talk to me again before I get on the plane and I may be singing a different tune...who knows.)

I may try to blog from Destination City, but I'm not sure how busy I'll be while there. I'm sure I will have plenty to blog about when I return.

Will our heroine relish her baby-free days, or will she spend her nights weepy? Will pumping go on as normal with the stress of all-day meetings among strangers? Will she manage to sneak out to see old friends in the area? And, most importantly, how is she going to get that breastmilk back home, intact and hopefully still usable?

Stay tuned!

You can't take the breastmilk back with you on a plane as carry on, only packed into your checked luggage. So depending on the length of your flight, it may make sense to either pack it in a cooler or just ship it back to yourself via FedEx (on ice?).

Good luck traveling without Baby Jane!

sciencemama, I did use an insulated bag, and it worked very well. (So did the trip without Baby Jane...I missed her, but it was kind of nice to not have to worry about anyone but myself again, if only for a few days.)
