How to have a date night while breastfeeding?

My and my hubby are going to a concert in about 2 weeks& our baby will be 4 months old. He will take a bottle, but he hardly ever has one- I just breastfeed. We will be gone I'm not even sure maybe 6 hours. I have some milk stored for my mom to give him, but what do I do when we are out to keep from getting engorged& to keep my milk supply(I only feed him off one side as it is so I can't afford to lose my supply).

Lansinoh makes a manual pump for only 30 dollars it works great and freshly pumped breast milk can stay out for four to five hours before needing to be refrigerated

I had a small bottle with me and I would hand express the milk.. I didn’t want to carry a pump bc I don’t like having a big bag ! Have fun!!!! ☺️

From someone prone to engorgement... Just pump/feed before you leave and perhaps when you get home if you need to. Chances of you losing your supply or becoming overly engorged due to 1x 6 hour outing is minimal. Have fun

I found a manual pump is better when on the go like that. You don't have to worry about power or finding an adapter or outlet. Plus it's much smaller then an electric pump, usually.

I personally never pumped when I was away or drank! I’ve been away for 6 hours and never pumped! I never worried about keeping a supply and my daughter would sleep 8 hours at night! Everyone is different
