Q&A: Shipping Breast Milk?
Sure. Long-distance moms have been known to overnight milk on a daily basis. (Exhausting? Yes. But the moms say it’s worth it.) Your best bet is to freeze the milk and pack it in dry ice before shipping. If you’re using an expedited shipping method (like next-day or second-day air), it should arrive still frozen — even if you’re shipping across the globe. Check out the table at IceColdIce.com to find out how much dry ice it will take to keep your milk solid. (It all depends on how much milk you’re shipping.)
