EBM - how much do I need to express for 24 hours?

From January when my BF baby will be 6 months, I have to do a hideous once-weekly overnight commute without him. DH and nursery will look after him just fine, and he's very good with taking EBM from bottles already.

But how much milk in mL do I need to express for 24 hours away?

He's currently 7.6 kg (16 lbs 13 oz) if that helps, and in a month I'd expect him to be about 8 kg. I'm not going to begin weaning him for the first month so that it doesn't unsettle him even more than he already will be.
