flying with BM how much can I bring??

We are going to mexico in 2 weeks and Id like to get a frozen stash established. I will have to bring it in a mini insulated cooler on board with me.  What are the rules for bringing BM on board?? How much will they allow me to bring???

  • "Medications, baby formula and food, breast milk, and juice are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding three ounces and are not required to be in the zip-top bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint. Click here to learn more about 3-1-1

    All items including formula, breast milk, and juice will be inspected, however, you or your infant or toddler will not be asked to test or taste breast milk, formula, or juice. Our Security Officers may test liquid exemptions (exempt items more than 3 ounces) for explosives."

    Took this from TSA website....hope that helps! I'd say just make sure your cooler meets the measurements for a carryon bag. :) Have fun!

  • Your cooler counts as "medical equipment" not a carryon (or it did when I flew in March). Smile

  • I flew back from the Turks and Caicos in March and carried over 80 ounces with me.  No one in T&C, customs or Atlanta security had any issue with the amount I carried back.
  • I brought back 3 thawed bottles (4 oz. each) and an insulated cooler with about 50 oz. when I went to WI a couple weeks ago.  They told me I had to declare it at security, but nobody asked me any questions.  The ticketing agent told me that since it's breastmilk, there's nothing they can do and I took that to mean that I could bring as much as I needed/wanted (within reason).
