    Default Flying with EBM, what about freezer packs?

    About to fly with my son and checked the guidelines and I know I can carry on milk, but not sure how to keep it cold. Does anyone know if they allow freezer packs -- which must have some sort of liquid over 3 ounces...Any guidance??

    I flew and took on board a small cooler with several bags of frozen EBM. I also packed the cooler with those blue ice packs. Then when I got through security I went to one of the food places and filled the cooler up with ice. The milk stayed frozen the entire time. I didn't have any problems w/ security, just told them what I was bringing on and they didn't even look inside the cooler.
