I've pulled overnight Staff Duty or Charge of Quarters and had to leave my baby at home and was unable to see her for 24 hours (too much hassle to go home...lived too far away). I pumped a lot ahead of time, so had a good little stash built up to leave with daddy to feed her, then I pumped throughout the day to keep up my supply...at least every 3-5 hours, and kept the milk in little mama-milk baggies, which I'd just stick in the freezer to replace the ones I gave daddy. The first time was before I went back to work...I had not even been away from her 2 hours at that point and I had to leave her for a full day. We survived it, and I nursed her for 9 months...until the unit decided to deploy me.
