Pumping Essentials

Traveling for the holidays? Here are some tips for navigating flying with breastmilk!
βœ”οΈPrint your rights from the TSA website before traveling
βœ”οΈYour pump does not count as a carry-on item because it is a medicaldevice. It can be carried on or checked for free, but if possible, carry it on just in case luggage is misplaced.
βœ”οΈAsk the TSA agent to change into clean gloves before he/she inspects them.
βœ”οΈForewarn TSA agents that you have breastmilk before going through x-ray.
βœ”οΈIf you’re staying in a hotel, don’t forget to ask for a room with a freezer.
βœ”οΈIf you are flying internationally, contact the consulate of your destination country and inquire about their regulations.
βœ”οΈMany moms report that airport Starbucks are happy to fill your cooler with ice.
βœ”οΈ Jessica Shortall recommends using the word β€œmedical” a lot.
βœ”οΈYou may fly with an unlimited quantity of breast milk whether or not you’re traveling with your baby!
βœ”οΈAnd make sure to allow yourself plenty of time!

Now this is how to postpartum! We deserve this level of support - breakfast/lunch/dinner in bed while we feed and cuddle our babies. Doula support can help you make this possible, imagine your partner (if you have a partner) in there with you. Glorious!

#postpartumgoals right? Moms don't need another baby blanket or onesie or someone to come over and be entertained. They need to be in bed, with baby, and nourishing food. Not worrying about the laundry, making dinner, work, entertaining guests, etc.

Many people call the trip they take during pregnancy their "baby moon." Actually, the baby moon refers to the early postpartum time of lying in. How can you plan for your postpartum baby moon?

Taking time in bed to recover after giving birth (no matter what type of birth you had and no matter how easy or difficult it was) can have a profound positive effect on long-term healing and recovery.
