Alyssa Milano Unloads on Heathrow Airport for Confiscating Her Breast Milk


Actress Alyssa Milano made it known to her almost 3 million followers that she wasn’t happy with London’s Heathrow Airport after her breast milk was apparently confiscated.

Milano, a mother to a 3-year-old and a seven-month-old, was carrying 10 ounces of breast milk in her bag. But according to government rules, Milano is not allowed to carry more than 100 milliliters of it unless she is accompanied by her baby.

The milk was therefore taken from her. The actress was obviously very irritated by the incident, and took to Twitter to lament about what had just happened:

Heathrow’s official Twitter account responded to Milano almost immediately:

Milano also posted two more messages on Twitlonger:

I would have happily spread milk in different containers (which I travel with) to comply to those liquid rules. Instead, milk was taken away with no discussion. Shampoo, lotions, etcetera were simply tested and handed back with no issue. Makes no sense at all.

PPS. I travel w/ a portable Medela breast pump on the plane. Hoping this is just a weird coincidence but my other breast pump that I checked w/ the rest of my baggage… is lost. Everything arrived at my final destination except my hospital grade breast pump. Filling out a lost baggage claim now.
