Air travel can be stressful, especially with all the TSA rules and regulations regarding liquids. If you are a mom getting ready to travel, but have questions about traveling with breast milk - don't worry. Here’s all the information you need!
Since breast milk is considered a “medically necessary liquid”, it has separate and more lenient guidelines regarding travel. According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), breast milk does not need to abide by the 3.4 ounce limit for liquids, and can be stored in containers larger than the normal quart-sized ziploc baggie for travel.
Breast milk can be transported in both checked bags and carry-on bags. When making your way through security, be sure to remove your breast milk from carry-on bags to be separately screened. Items in a carry-on bag to aid with cooling breast milk (such as freezer packs or ice packs) are permitted for travel, as long as they are removed from bags and screened separately.
Here are some product recommendations to make travel easier. We can't recommend Junobie's products enough! You can get the Battery-Operated Travel Cooling Cup or the reusable breast milk bags for a more eco-friendly option. You can also ship your breast milk through Milk Stork.
If you follow these tips, you’ll have nothing to worry about as a traveling mom - except maybe those pesky TSA lines or delayed flights. Safe travels!
