Alyssa Milano Is Tweeting Her Frustration After Airport Confiscates Her Breast Milk

Alyssa Milano had her breast milk confiscated while going through security at Heathrow Airport in London, England earlier in the day and she has taken to her Twitter to tell the world that this is not okay!

“Pumping on a plane is difficult. Small FYI.” the 42-year-old actress wrote on her Twitter account. Hours later, she updated a series of tweets directed at the airport.

“(1 of 2) @HeathrowAirport just took my pumped breast milk away. 10 ounces. Gone. Not okay.” Alyssa wrote. “(2 of 2) They said they would let the pumped milk through if I had the baby with me. Why would I need to pump if I had the baby with me????”

    Follow the rules: 3 ounces.

    and the first thing she thinks of to do is grab her phone and tweet endlessly about it. what an idiot.

  • Nika

    how about not to fly all over the freaking world and stay home with you baby

  • Jamie

    How many breastfeeding photos has she posted? And, is the photo above supposed to be like the one Gisele posted awhile back? I think Kim Kardashian posted a similar photo too.

    How do you even know she tweeted that right after it happened? Those kinds of things should be shared to inform so it doesn’t happen to anybody else. So stop with the hate and criticizing everything.

    I am familiar with her Twitter. She is a very entitled individual. I really can’t stand her. And the breastfeeding pics are annoying. I am completely for public breastfeeding. But mature, secure women just do it. They don’t need to make a big show of it for the world.

  • disqus_ctzLi2IUuU

    Oh, didn’t you know? Alyssa is above it all. Not the first time I have witnessed public entitled behavior from her in the last couple of years.

  • Kip

    lol

  • Mari Belle

    All of you who posted hateful comments are ridiculous. I have followed her twitter for years and she is definitely not “self entitled” at all.
    And seriously, if she pumped on the plane who cares if it was 3, 7, 10 14 or 22 ounces? It was BREASTMILK forfucksake! Or is it now somehow possible to inject some type of harmful chemical into the breasts, then pump it out through the NIPPLE, using a BREAST PUMP? Oh and furthermore, IF someone by some IMPOSSIBLE chance were doing just that, why the HELL would they be taking it OFF the PLANE?

  • Mari Belle

    Idiot, it’s coming…… not comming!

  • Mari Belle

    How about get a clue, millions of women fly with and WITHOUT their babies, especially when they have jobs that require travel!
    Maybe you should learn to not be so judgmental.

  • Mari Belle

    I have only seen the one.

  • Mari Belle

    Mature, secure women know it is something natural and health for baby.
    And aren’t worried over asshats such as you, who don’t grasp the concept that many women around the country are being ridiculed and shamed for breastfeeding in public places. Therefore they take and post pics to SUPPORT those women and ALL women who should be allowed to breastfeed where ever and whenever their babies are hungry!

  • Cambel

    Funny, the first thing you thought of to do was to come in here and comment on it. Are you an idiot?

  • Cambel

    Interesting, one guy tries to light his shoes on fire and we all have to strip, and get shampoo taken away at the airport. 30 kids are slaughtered with guns in a school and politicians scream that any talk of gun control is a stupid overreaction.

  • SkinnyFat

    no, are you?

  • Jon M’Shulla

    Some TSA pervert, is no doubt spanking the monkey, in the potty.

  • Nika

    and here we go. another selfish mother who thinks the whole universe is rotating around you. I bet your kid will really appreciate your attitude in the future ;)

  • Kelly White

    Ok so dont get me wrong, i think what they did was horrific! All it did was embarrasass her anger ALOT of people and hold up a flight! but……whyndid she need all that breast milk with her …with no baby?????

  • Mari Belle

    Lol, you silly little idiot. All my kids except 1 are grown….. and not only do they adore me, but yes they do appreciate my attitude. Women work, women travel, and guess what….. they travel for work.

    Here we go again! Disrespecting breastfeeding and
    breastmilk. As a breastfeeding advocate and researcher in
    the Janice M. Riordan Distinguished Professorship in Maternal Child Health at
    Wichita State University I find several stories a week, sometimes a day,
    relating another tale of a breastfeeding mom being hassled.

    Thursday, 4/9/2015, it
    was Alyssa Milano’s turn. Traveling home
    through London’s Heathrow Airport, Alyssa Milano, breastfeeding mother and out
    spoken breastfeeding advocate, had 10 ounces of breastmilk confiscated and discarded
    as she passed security. Being separated
    from her daughter while she travelled, Alyssa, like all breastfeeding mothers
    seeking comfort from breastmilk engorgement and to maintain their breastmilk
    supply, pumped and saved the breast milk to take home (for the next time she
    had to be away for an extended period).
    However, Alyssa was not traveling with her breastfeeding infant and
    therefore, according to security personnel and tweets from Heathrow Airport,
    the pumped breast milk needed to meet the 100 cc per container rule. Alyssa had the milk in 5-ounce containers so
    it was taken.

    But, but, but….. That’s BREAST MILK! Miracle food! Liquid
    gold!

    Breast milk is not just
    another fluid like shampoo or toothpaste.
    Breast milk is irreplaceable as each mother makes milk specifically
    tailored for her infant. It is easily
    digestible and utilized to nourish an infant.
    Breast milk contains infection protection antibodies and immunoglobulins
    which decrease the risk of acute and chronic illness both short and long
    term. Additionally, breast milk contains
    long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids which are unique to humans and essential
    for brain development. Breast milk truly is the best, most complete food for
    human infants

    But to discard 10 ounces
    of breast milk is a crime. That is:

    ·
    10 ounces of love
    for Alyssa’s daughter

    ·
    15 lifesaving
    feedings for preterm infants

    ·
    2-4 feedings of
    miracle food for an adopted infant

    ·
    Loss of lifesaving
    stem cells, the potential of which we are just beginning to learn

    Breast milk is a gift
    like no other. Thankfully the US
    Transportation Security Agency’s carry-on fluid policy includes breast milk
    (formula & juices for infants & toddlers) with other “medically
    necessary fluids” (http://www.tsa.gov/traveling-formula-breast-milk-and-juice). The
    breastmilk needs to be declared and may be subject to extra screening, but it
    is allowed to be carried on with or without
    a baby being present. Another small step
    towards protecting, promoting and supporting breastfeeding, an international goal for the health of
    everyone.
