    Default traveling with cow's milk

    Does anyone know how long cow's milk can stay fresh while it's not in the fridge? The reason I ask is that I will be traveling this month and wilth all those airline restrictions they won't let you bring cooling packs.

    Thanks in advance.

    I can get milk on the plane but I've heard from mothers that certain carriers won't allow those cooling packs because of the "risks" That's why I want to know how long it can be out the fridge without it getting spoiled.

    I'll see if I can find something on line...
    I would think if it was in a thermos with some ice it would last as long as a flight would...

    If u bring it to a boil it won't go bad for a few hours. I am from India and we do that often. We buy fresh milk everyday ..boil it and it stays good on the shelf for half a day. then we refrigerate it or boil it again.

    Interesting, so just to clarify. Do you bring it to a complete boil? Or just to the point that it's about to boil. Thanks

    you're allowed to bring breastmilk on the plane and you can bring the cooler packs to store the breastmilk, so just pretend it's breastmilk maybe?

    I am pretty sure the time limit is 2 hours. If it's hot though it's 1 hour.
