Alyssa Milano took to Twitter to blast London’s Heathrow Airport for confiscating her pumped breast milk at security.
(1 of 2) @HeathrowAirport just took my pumped breast milk away. 10 ounces. Gone. Not okay.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) April 9, 2015
(2 of 2) They said they would let the pumped milk through if I had the baby with me. Why would I need to pump if I had the baby with me????— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) April 9, 2015
Milano claims that her other liquids were tested but her breast milk was “taken away with no discussion.” She added she would have divided the breast milk into different containers to comply with the airport’s rules had she been given the chance.
.@HeathrowAirport Why can you test my toiletries to make sure they are safe but you have to throw away my breast milk?— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) April 9, 2015
Heathrow replied to the star and tried to smooth things over.
@Alyssa_Milano Hi Alyssa. Unfortunately, without a baby present, the government requires all liquids in carry-ons to follow the 100ml rule.— Heathrow Airport (@HeathrowAirport) April 9, 2015
Milano has long been a proponent of breast feeding and she has shared several pictures of herself feeding her daughter, Elizabella Dylan.
