    "'You made me dump out nearly two weeks worth of food for my son,' she said.
    Heathrow says the UK government's rules on carrying liquids on planes are set out for passengers on its website.
    The rules, set out by the Department for Transport, say that liquids may only be carried in containers holding 100ml or less in a transparent and re-sealable single bag.
    The website says exceptions are made in the case of baby food or baby milk but only if the passenger is travelling with a baby. It says excess liquids should be carried as hold luggage."

    Tough ****.


    She tried to take 14.8 litres of breastmilk with her, that's 148times the limit.


    This is what you call self-entitled. There are literally hundreds of thousands of working mothers out there who do breastfeed their child(ren), yet every single of of them bar you has stuck to the rules.

    Sissy fit over nothing.

    Ok, so if you've ever expressed milk out of your t1ts for a baby, and I have, you'd understand exactly how invested this mum was. It's an excruciatingly slow, uncomfortable, undignified process, attached to breast pumps, like some factory cow. And lets not forget that a lot of mums of newborns haven't learned how to breastfeed property yet, and so their nipples will be scabby. Yes scabby. She should have understood the rules, but don't underestimate the loss.

    Isn't US airport security just as tight as ours?

    Surely they must have the same restrictions on liquids?
