    Default Flying with frozen breast milk

    Anyone done this? I have a stash of frozen breast milk from this week, flying with Virgin back to Sydney and I have at least 6/7 individual bags, most of them less than 60ml, all frozen. I will have more by the time I leave.

    Am I allowed to take it on board?

    If not, is there anywhere I can donate to locally? I'm in surfers paradise

    Default Flying with frozen breast milk

    Hi there 😀 I've carried 6 or so bottles of frozen milk in my hand luggage a couple of times with absolutely no issues. I've just put them in an insulated lunch bag with some small frozen bricks.

    Thanks, did your milk stay frozen? I want to try and keep it frozen so I don't waste it.

    My in-laws fly up melb to bris with meat from the farm. It's frozen on the farm, in an esky with ice packs for the 4hr drive to airport then in a cooler bag on the 2-2.5hr plane trip and home. It arrives frozen.

    I should think Bm would be similar.

    It was only the tiniest bit defrosted - just a very thin layer on the tops, probably 2ml. I packed it well with ice bricks and used a really good insulated lunch bag. If you could pack actual ice (and add salt to the ice) in there too it would probably help. It'd mean less gaps around the bags/bottles.
