Inform your hotel/destination beforehand of your Milk Stork order so they will accept it on your behalf.
Milk should already be frozen before packing in cooler. We recommend freezing upright for maximum use of cooler space. Zip top bags are recommended for maximum space.
Milk Stork Freeze coolers do not arrive cold, or activated and do not have an activation button. Our coolers work with high performance vacuum insulated panels that will maintain the frozen temperature for up to 96 hours.
Breast milk, as well as ice packs, freezer packs, frozen gel packs and other accessories required to keep breast milk cold, are permitted by TSA.
You are not required to put your breast milk through the X-ray machine, but YOU AND YOUR LUGGAGE WILL BE SUBJECT TO ADDITIONAL SCREENING.
Milk Stork Pump & Totes are considered carry-ons.
TSA & YOUR MILK STORK COOLER:
Notify TSA that you are traveling with breast milk.
YOUR MILK STORK COOLER AND YOUR BREAST MILK WILL BE INSPECTED BY TSA.
Milk Stork Freeze & Totes DO NOT CONTAIN DRY ICE or ice, nor do they contain any hazardous materials.
If you have sealed your cooler with the circular packing seals, TSA may break the seals to inspect the cooler whether it is a carry-on or checked as (or with) luggage.
Following inspection, replace the lid and close the cooler. To maintain frozen temperature, keep the cooler closed for the duration of your travel.
If you check your Milk Stork cooler as luggage, it is likely to be X-rayed and it may be inspected without you being present.
If the cooler is packed in your luggage, your suitcase may also be inspected.
Allow extra time in your travel plans to accommodate these additional security inspections.
Milk Stork is not responsible for damage or loss to the cooler or your breast milk caused by the airline security inspection process and/or airline baggage handling, if traveling with your cooler. Additionally, Milk Stork is not responsible for inconsistent or incorrect enforcement of breast milk travel regulations or inspection of the Milk Stork cooler in the United States or internationally.
