Packing for your travels is hard enough, but packing for a baby? It's a nightmare; especially if you need to pack breast milk. You just thought traveling with a baby was going to be tough, but now you have to play a game of Tetris to fit the baby's bathtub into an already packed car and you need some hacks for traveling with pumped milk.
You can forget diapers, wipes, and a toothbrush, but you can't lose all of that liquid gold your baby was going to eat?. Whether you exclusively pump for your baby or just wanted to bring some pumped milk along in case breastfeeding was too difficult, you have one goal — keep the milk fresh.
But it can be difficult when you're traveling. If you're flying, you might be nervous about the TSA guidelines. (Spoiler alert: they're pretty accommodating with breast milk and baby supplies.) If you're going on a good old-fashioned road trip, you're concerned about keeping the breast milk cold (especially during these warmer months) and storing it as you travel.
Luckily, there are some hacks for traveling with pumped milk that can not only ease your mind, but keep your breast milk safe for your little one to drink. It takes a little extra time and effort before traveling to make some of these hacks work, but when you're enjoying your vacation or trip without worrying about your breast milk, you'll know they were totally worth it.
