    You can get an insulated bottle bag that you put freezer packs in to keep the bottles cold during your flight. The bag I have keeps bottles cold for up to 6 hours. Is it possible to get a hotel room with a mini fridge? Then you could store everything you pump in there. Good luck and have fun on your trip

    If you can't get a room with a mini-fridge, I have heard other mothers on this list say that the hotel was very accommodating about keeping the milk in the hotel's kitchen freezer. You can call and ask about this ahead of time.

    Since I had over-supply and an abundant freezer supply, I just pumped and dumped while I traveled so I never had to deal with saving it.

    Good luck!

    small igloo cooler will work too...
    I agree call the hotel and ask if they wouldn't mind freezing it for you.
    Frozen milk will stay frozen for a long time on ice in a cooler.
