But I dont plan on weaning her before that. If I pump milk for the time I am gone and she drinks it in a cup - will she still nurse when I get home? Will solids and expressed breast milk tide her over enough?

And yes, DEFINITELY pump while you're gone. If not... :
At 13 mos, your DD may still be nursing as much as she does now, just with a bit of solids thrown in. Would you do it now?

I agree that you should pump a lot while away, if you have to go without your dc.
