Travelling with EBM?

Hi all, I need some advice please!

Usual routine is, I express every morning (anything between 6oz and 9oz) and Baby has the bottle for his last feed of the day. We're going away on Thursday for a few days - will be travelling for at least 3+ hours, maybe more depending on whether we need to stop for a feed - so what should I do about the EBM?

Can I take the bottle with me in the insulated pocket of the change bag and bung it in the fridge as soon as I arrive? Or do I need to pack it around with ice blocks etc to keep it really cold? Or should I not take it with me at all?

Maybe I should give him the bottle as soon as we arrive and then try to express enough for a last feed of the day bottle? If I do that I'm worried I won't be able to produce much and then, because I don't usually do that last feed of the day, my supply's going to be really low and we're going to have a bad night.....

Any advice please? ?(

Personally I would pack the container with a load of ice packs in an insulated bag and use it as you would do normally.

Which is exactly what the breastfeding network suggest too if you're not near a fridge :D
