Hi Aben, Yes, expressing milk helps a lot (only if your baby takes bottle nicely, as spoon bowl is messy stuff), YOU can express it at night and keep in fridge also, bring to room temperature before feeding and do try to keep more milk, as you may need. During flight landing or take off you may need to feed your baby (consult pedc on travelling issue), so move out of uncomforting zone, as its for baby. Try dupatta or feeding cover. Use feeding room on airport. Hope this helps.

you have a 24 hour window... so decide accordingly... airports have feeding rooms... you can also use the space to feed or pump... remember to sterilise the pump after use...

Hope its fine. Anyhow check the travelling time and plan accordingly. before getinto the flight, u will have feeding room separately in the airport. U can give the milk directly so that baby will not feel much hungry while in flight.

S da. I'm doing the same for my son who s two months old. Express the milk via breast pump and store t in a feeding bottle. U can keep the express milk at room temperature max. 4 hours. Otherwise keep the same in fridge..

you can try a breast pump... store the expressed milk in steel containers and keep it in fridge.. use within 24 hours.. before feeding, bring the temperature back to room temperature...
