Traveling and breastfeeding

by Laura on July 20, 2012

Breastfeeding while traveling brings some pros and cons.  I love it that you don’t have to worry about food for your baby, but sometimes it is difficult to keep your baby’s schedule amidst the craziness of traveling.

I found a great article to share today: “Traveling while Breastfeeding this Summer?  13 Tips to Know before Hitting the Road!“  This article talks about tips for traveling with your baby, keeping your milk supply up when you are traveling away from him, and breast milk storage reminders.


Please let other readers know…any good tips you have found while traveling and breastfeeding?

That article was very helpful! I didn’t know breastmilk was considered a liquid medication so you are allowed to take it through security in larger than 3 oz. Good to know!

Yes, I didn’t realize that either. Thanks for your comment!

You can actually travel with expressed breast milk, formula, baby food, and juice (for the baby/toddler) in amounts greater than 3 oz. You just need to declare it to the TSA agents at screening.

Thank you so much Janelle. I’m so glad you can travel with those.
