Security Officers Confiscate Alyssa Milano's Breast Milk at the Airport

Actress Alyssa Milano is known for promoting breastfeeding – she confirmed that with a selfie where she is breastfeeding her child. She also tracked the Instagram photo on Twitter brilliantly by asking why are people being OK with Kim Kardashian's booty cover, but are criticizing images of breastfeeding and feeding in public.

This is not where the story ends. Milano was recently stopped by an airport security officer and was confiscated 10 ounces of breast milk. Needless to say, this made her very angry and she clearly stated that on Twitter: “@HeathrowAirport just took my pumped breast milk away. 10 ounces. Gone. Not okay.” Furthermore, the actress explains in an interview, it appears that her second breast pump, packed in the baggage, was mysteriously gone. She got all of her belongings back but not the breast pump.

She was told at the security check point that she would have been able to carry the milk on the plane if she was with her baby, which she wasn't at the time. That made no sense to her either, because as soon as she got past security, she was able to pump again and had 5 ounces of breast milk with her on the plane.

She concluded very wisely that this is not the end of the world, and that the security officials were just doing their job in protecting passengers. The policy, however, said Milano, needs to change and mothers should not be maltreated because they are breastfeeding. She said that seeing her milk being thrown away made her very sad.
