At 15 months, I would assume he is also getting a large amount of his nutritional needs met by standard table food. Therefore, it is not necessary for the OP to pump and store the expressed milk to feed to her child when she returns home. If the child was 6 months old, then my answer would have been completely different.

FYI, I also nursed my DD until she self-weaned at 21 months. But I stopped pumping when she was 12 months because it wasn't a problem if I didn't have expressed milk for her to drink if I wasn't there to nurse her. She could drink cow's milk and be just fine.
Ok sorry I misunderstood. I get what you were saying now.

If you are done nursing, I would pump for comfort and dump. I have nursed all of my kids and still nursing the 16 month old, but only a couple of times a day. When you are down to only nursing a few times per day, your body isn't going to make much milk. I don't think it will take much at all for my milk to dry up, and I am sure that being away for a week and only pumping occasionally will most likely end your nursing days. I don't think I would bother w/ trying to bring the milk back thru the airport, too much hastle.
