We'll be going in a month and my 19 month old will still be bf. I'm hoping she self weans by 2, but it doesn't look good at this point (her sister did self wean by 20 months). She eats solids fine, but is not a fan of cow milk. She will not drink it at all if I am present.

I have a feeling I will be getting looks (I know I got some when bf her younger sister at 13 months) and this one is a *tall* 19 month old.

I always loved a good sling. You can angle them down well, multiple positions to wear the baby, and the little sling "tail" is great if the baby needs to have head covered for sun/distraction/etc. I was never successful in an upright carrier like an ergo, but I know some people are.

Give me wine, and I'm happy I'm not overly worried about my supply because it pretty much is what she's eating as long as I'm getting in the sessions. I just don't want to risk it depleting to see if I can reduce sessions, kwim? It took a bit to re-regulate after Disney, and it was stressful because I was worrying about it and dipping into freezer stash to cover it. 8x/day sucks, but it also gives me some time where DD isn't attached to me...so in that way it's somewhat relaxing too.

As for the manual...I have used one once or twice, when my Ameda pump broke and I hadn't had the medela in my possession yet. It worked OK - great, even, for the occasional session. For your situation, on the plane, I think I'd be more likely to use the manual.
Thanks for your recommendation! Did your hand hurt at all from manual pumping? I have a bit of tendonitis in my hands and it acts up occasionally with repetitive motion. Not all the time, but sometimes.

My DD self weaned at 20 months too. My son is almost 18 months old and still nursing. He actually nursed more during our trip last week then he does at home. He nursed on most of the rides and all of the shows! I've never in all my time breastfeeding gotten any weird looks or comments. I wouldn't care anyway, a kid has to eat. I actually saw quite a few toddlers nursing last week. One actually looked older then my own....so don't think you're the only one.

It did a little bit..I switched hands about 1/2 through on each side to help that a little bit. I think I was using the manual pump accessory that came with the Ameda pump, which may not be the best - it was just what I had. I've heard good things about the Medela Harmony, though.

Sleeping Baby Productions is a ring-sling maker that I've seen recommended a lot. I really liked the feel of their sling, I just couldn't use it b/c the one shoulder weight distribution doesn't work with my lower back issues. MayaWrap Ring Slings are another brand I tried and was also quite comfortable.

I had a ring sling that a friend of mine made (she had a business). But, maya wrap is a good brand that most folks like. The ring is what makes it so adjustable and helpful.

Thanks, just ordered one from amazon. Gives me time to get used to it before Disney

Don't worry about it! My oldest self-weaned at 3, my middle "self"-weaned at just under 18 months (I was at the very tail end of my pregnancy and he declared my breasts "b-oken" . . . #3 came along less than a week later and he wouldn't go back), my youngest self-weaned at just over 2 years. The only looks I got when BFing my babes were usually from supportive mothers. I got a pat on the shoulder from a grandmother. Once, at a restaurant, our waitress tucked a card under my bill that said she was proud of my for BFing in public and that I should "keep on keeping on". I think she realized how little support I got from my in-laws!

Anyway - most people are so caught up in themselves/their kids while at WDW that they're not even going to notice what you're doing. Have a great trip!

Sorry if this has been answered before, but will the baby care centers/first aid store pumped breast milk for you in the refrigerator? My little one is going to be spending some time at the resort having fun with grandma so I plan to pump a few times at the parks when we are apart. Wasn't sure if I could possibly store the milk there or if I should just plan to bring a little cooler. I don't want to pump and dump if I can avoid it. Thanks!

I don't know about the BCCs, but I kept pumped milk in a small cooler with ice packs on each side of the cooler, and it stayed cold pretty much all day. I had 2 sets of ice packs so that if I went back to the hotel, I could switch them out midday.

I love this thread! I nursed DD3 until she was a year old and planning on doing the same for DS who is 4.5 months old. We are going in December right after DD turns 4 and DS turns 1 so who knows if I will still be nursing him but I would have no trouble nursing him at WDW. I have nursed anywhere from the park, zoo, children's museums, restaurants and other theme parks. You name it and I have probably nursed there. Don't let anyone intimidate you or get under your skin. You are feeding your precious child!

At Epcot, about a month ago, I was not allowed to store anything in the Baby Care Center. I could not leave my pump, and I could not store a cooler bag with breast milk in it.
I have read conflicting stories on this... some people say that they HAVE been allowed to do this, but I can tell you that I was not.
I carried my cooler bag with the Medela ice pack. It kept my milk at an acceptable temperature.
