Resources For Breastfeeding Parents While Traveling

Milk on the move! We are here to help!

We are so excited to share these tips and resources to help you navigate travel as a breastfeeding parent! When you travel with breast milk, we always recommend giving yourself extra time at the airport so that if any issues arise, you have time to work through them (e.g. to call TSA Cares for help or undergo extra security screening).

Remember, MOST parents experience no issues when flying with breast milk. However, it is good to know your rights and what to expect so that you can advocate for yourself if needed.

As you prepare, check out these tips on our new page and follow Sarah Wells Bags collaborator and travel resource partner, Carrie-Ellen, on Instagram @TravelBoundMom
