Inform TSA you're traveling with breastmilk
🛫 You have the right deny x-ray testing, according to TSA there is no harm done to your milk during scan.  I've always requested a manual inspection of my breast milk. As you approach the TSA line, treat this process as normal by emptying your bags and seperate anything you want inspected seperately be sure to place in seperate bin. This is where 1 gallon zip lock bags come in extra handy! If you have loose bags of milk in coolers I would recommend placing in zip lock back and placing back in the cooler for the TSA agent to pull out as one whole item rather than thumb through your precious milk.

🛫 There is no limit on volume of breastmilk when traveling through TSA.

🙋🏻‍♀️ I've traveled back from San Diego and Miami with two Ceres Chillers filled at max capacity of 27 ounces and a cooler full of individuals liquid bags of milk. In total about 100 ounces of milk!
Vapor test with fresh milk
🛫 Ice packs are considered medically necessary and are allowed through TSA checkpoints.

🛫 You do not need your baby with your you to travel with breastmilk. You also don’t need to prove to them you have a baby you’re bringing milk home to.. yes this is silly but it’s happened.

🛫 You have the right and access for more information by calling
TSA CARES (855) 787-2227

🛫 3+ Days before travel you can also request special assistance/help from TSA Cares.
