After 2 months plus, I have about 3-days worth of EBM in my freezer. Some were used during my chicken pox quarantine period, when I didn't manage to pump enough for Raees. Mind you, that time he was also sick and didn't eat much. So he demanded a lot of milk.
Anyway, I was away for a 3-day assignment in Johor this week and decided that I can't pump and throw like I usually do. If not, I will come back to an empty EBM storage which means trouble for my next assignment (scheduled next week).
So I brought along an extra hand luggage, the icebox.
I scheduled my shoot in JB in a way that allowed me to go back to the hotel in the afternoon to pump since I brought along the auto pump.
I couldn't find the luxury of pumping every 3 hours. I only managed to do so in the morning, afternoon, evening and night.
Anyhoo, my colleague has a friend who works at the hotel so he helped arrange for my milk to be stored at coffee house freezer.
I checked out as early as 5.30am to catch my flight back home and my milk was conveniently brought down to the lobby for me that very morning.
I managed to get a dozen packets of EBM in about 48 hours. Each about 4oz on average.
Good thing there was no problem carrying the milk along as hand luggage on domestic flight. So now my the EBM is restored! And I'm one happy mama :D
