I'm mother to 28 weeker preemie. I have freezer stash of around 600oz of BM piled up during his stay in NICU. I have the milk in chest freezer bought just for storing BM.
We need to relocate from hartford CT to Dallas,TX in April. I'm really worried about moving my freezer. Please help me with some ideas. My considerations till now are:
1. Check in the milk with airlines. Pack 300oz each in two coolers with some dryice and gel packs and check in. My problem here is airlines allows only 5lbs of dryice per cooler. Will that be enuf?
Total time for milk out of freezer would be 10-12 hrs assuming airlines doesn't miss the baggage.
2.Drive from here to tx with coolers in the car. Replacing dry ice throughout the journey. I have another 4 yr old. I'm scared of such a long drive with 2 children for more than 2 days. We plan to stay in the hotel in the night.
Thanks in advance.
