Explosive Breastmilk

In Children and Youth, Terrorism on August 28, 2006 at 11:07 am

Being that i’ve made posts in the past about breastfeeding as well as terrorism and airport security, I figured that a blog entry made today on the Washingt Post Blog was worth linking to.

It describes security regulations and how they relate to parents travelling with babies. Comments include perosnal experiences by mothers.

While breastfmilks, pumps, and formula are allowed, it is still more of a hassle than ever. For example, when my family went on a recent trip, the diaper bag we were carrying with us was put through the x-ray machine three times and hand searched three times by two different people. They said “something looked like a bottle when it went throught the x-ray machine.”

In the WaPo blog, the author links to the TSA guidleines , which humorously states “You or your baby or toddler will not be asked to test or taste breast milk or formula. Our Security Officers will not test or taste formula or breast milk.” Thank god for that.
