I'm usually a lurker but I had some questions that I'm hoping to get insights on from other working Moms. I'm going on a business trip next month for a couple of days and I'm still nursing my baby. I have enough BM in my freezer stash for him to be fed while I'm away but I have some questions about pumping on my trip.
- Has anyone transported pumped milk on a domestic flight before? I'm planning to store the milk in BM bags and then put bags of ice in my Medela PIS cooler bag - has anyone does this before and was the milk still ok? It will probably be in the cooler bag for around 8 hours.
- I've asked the hotel to provide a mini fridge but those don't seem to be very cold - has anyone had any experience with storing BM in a hotel mini fridge?
- Would I have to check my bag or will the TSA allow me to transport BM over 3 oz? I know that officially they have to allow it but I was wondering if anyone had any bad experiences with this.
Thanks and I'll appreciate any additional advice for all the working Moms who have been in a similar situation.
