Moving across country with frozen milk

We are moving in a few weeks from NV to WI.  Flight is about 4 hours, plus 2 hours in the airport.  I have A LOT of frozen milk (maybe 200 oz). My FIL is here right now and I was thinking of sending half with him, but I am not sure if they will let him fly with it without LO.  I am also not sure if it will make the trip frozen.  I also read about shipping it. Does anyone have experience with this?  Any other ideas?  I thought maybe if we check it when we fly it would stay frozen, but not sure if checking it is the best idea either...

  • You can check dry ice. I would get a cooler with dry ice that fits in a large duffle bag and check it. Declare the dry ice; they will inspect it but not do anything else. We have transported ice cream across the country many times.

     Yes, I saw that online.  I am considering this, however, I am nervous about it getting lost. It is a direct flight, but we recently had our carseat lost on the same flight (it got to us eventually, but it took a few days).   

  • Call the airline and see what they suggest! I'm sure it's come up before!!
