Checking in- breastmilk when traveling without baby

New Arrival

Hi,
I'm traveling on a business matter. I have a 7 month old and breastfeeding. I will be pumping and storing milk in the cooler while I'm away (4 days). How much liquid (breastmilk) can I check through the security on my way back? Just to clarify, baby is not traveling with me.

This was an interesting one, I wasn't sure about the requirements if the baby wasn't present:

TSA website says the baby doesn't need to be present, the rules would all still apply the same so you may bring it through, subject to additional testing - allow extra time for screening.
