People have told me to keep an emergency store of BM in the freezer incase something were to happen to me that I wouldn't be able to feed dd (car accident, sickness, ect?) I can't imagine anything that would stop me though!! What do you think of this? Do you have an emergency store? How much? I exclusively BF, no bottles or cups. DD is 9 mos. TIA!!!

I never felt the real need for that, I kept about 4 bottles-worth in my freezer, though, from when I was pumping to get my supply up. It came in handy when I took an 'approved for BFing' med that tanked my supply for a night.<br><br>
If you go out regularly without the babe or travel far away, I might keep a day's worth in case of layovers, bad weather, or something that could keep you away from babe when you didn't expect it. For us, the child goes with the boobs so I never felt a need.<br><br>
ETA: Car accident, etc. IMO it's pretty rare that something would happen that would make me unable to BF. I can't think of anything that has ever happened to me in the past 24 years that would make me unable, so I guess it's something I don't feel the need to plan for.

I have always hated pumping after having to do it for 4 weeks all day long after dd was born. So I just don't and I don't have a back up plan. I never pumped for ds and probably won't for this baby either.
