Thread: shipping BM

  1. #1

    Default shipping BM

    Anyone have experience overnight shipping expressed BM home to baby while traveling? I know it's possible, but a little overwhelmed at the whole process. Looking for advice on the best carrier.... and tips for best transport, best way to keep it cold, etc.
    Thanks mommas!

    I know there are people here who know about it, I believe you need to buy dry ice, Fed Ex???, can you get a little cooler? Maybe from a doctor's office? I know clinics that get a lot of tiny coolers from shipping lab stuff or you could also probably find them pretty inexpensive at a Target/Wal Mart kind of store.

    Pretty sure you do not freeze it first since that would cause it to freeze/thaw instead of just keeping it cold (if that makes sense). I think it keeps better shipped cool rather than frozen.
