How often to pump when away from baby?

Next month I will be leaving DD2 for about 36 hours. She will have just turned 6 months.

I will be taking a pump with me and wondered roughly how many times I should aim to pump while away?

At the moment she usually feeds about 6-8 times in a 24 hour period.

Also due to her age is it worth trying to get her used to some kind of cup/beaker as she has been given expressed milk in a bottle a few times and isn't that keen!

Thanks in advance smile

Not an expert, but if it was me I would try and pump at least six times, evenly spaced, night as well as day.

I will be in your situation because of a hen weekend in May so interested in the general consensus myself.
