What are the guidlines for packing baby formula when your flying. I was told if the baby formula wasn't opened it was fine. I have seven cans of formula because I don't plan to come back till January 4th. Any info will help, thanks..

I would call the airline just to be sure, when I flew with my little one a few years ago I had pumped 10 oz of breast milk so it would be easier to feed him on the plane (I had my other 2 boys with me alone) and they would not let me take it on the plane.  Nice right???

 the reason they wouldnt let u take it, from the TSA website-

When traveling with your infant or toddler, in the absence of suspicious activity or items, greater than 3 ounces of baby formula, breast milk, or juice are permitted through the security checkpoint in reasonable quantities for the duration of your itinerary, if you perform the following:

  1. Separate these items from the liquids, gels, and aerosols in your quart-size and zip-top bag.
  2. Declare you have the items to one of our Security Officers at the security checkpoint.
  3. Present these items for additional inspection once reaching the X-ray. These items are subject to additional screening.

You can take the liquid in a bottle for a baby. Powder is fine also.

I would have been livid and put up a fight on that one. Pretty sure you have rights to bring breastmilk, they should know that!
