I am going to be away with work in October and DS2 will be 5 1/2 months. I am keen to continue bfing and looking for any tips/advice on how this will work. I am leaving at about 5pm and back about 10pm next day. Worried I will be leaking all the place! Obviously I will 'pump and dump'!

Will it be ok to be away for this amount of time?

Pumping will be fine. Keep yourself comfortable & use lots of breastpads as you might leak. Check with your employer if you are able to have breaks in the day to pump - every 4hrs or so.
