Alyssa Milano goes off on airport for confiscating her breast milk
(1 of 2) @HeathrowAirport just took my pumped breast milk away. 10 ounces. Gone. Not okay.
(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 Hi Alyssa. Unfortunately, without a baby present, the government requires all liquids in carry-ons to follow the 100ml rule.
.@HeathrowAirport Why can you test my toiletries to make sure they are safe but you have to throw away my breast milk?
@Alyssa_Milano Hi Alyssa. We replied to your first tweet with the answer, but more info can be found here: http://t.co/poCZcEWkLm
.@HeathrowAirport I was told I would be fine if the baby was with me. Plus, it was less than 5 ounces per container. Why is my shampoo okay?
@Alyssa_Milano Sorry for any confusion caused. To confirm, if you aren't travelling with your baby, milk is subject to the 100ml/(3.4oz) 1/2
PS. Another reason it makes no sense - when I got past security it was time to pump again so... I did carry on 5 ounces of breast milk.
@Alyssa_Milano Alyssa - I can relate. I almost got detained at Heathrow last summer b/c they wanted to trash my breast milk. It was a scene.
@Alyssa_Milano Before you go through, that liquid could be anything. Shock horror, airport security rules apply to breastfeeding celebrities
@Alyssa_Milano that is such BS. Mothers travel for work without their babies. I did it many times and never had breastmilk confiscated.
.@HeathrowAirport I would have happily spread milk in different containers (which I travel with) to comply t… http://t.co/I1kmVXufhv
@Alyssa_Milano @HeathrowAirport If you were aware of the rules, why didn't you do this in the first place?
PPS. I travel w/ a portable Medela breast pump on the plane. Hoping this is just a weird coincidence but my … http://t.co/i5ocz7W6o2

The mother of two - daughter Elizabella, 7 months, and son Milo, 3 - explained exactly what happened. "Heathrow Airport just took my pumped breast milk away. 10 ounces. Gone. Not okay," she wrote. "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?"

After getting through security, Milano pointed out the irony that since she pumped again, she would still be bringing pumped milk onto the plane. "PS. Another reason it makes no sense - when I got past security it was time to pump again so... I did carry on 5 ounces of breast milk," she added.

To make matters worse, it appears the airport also may have LOST Milano's breast pump!

"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," Milano tweeted. "Everything arrived at my final destination except my hospital grade breast pump. Filling out a lost baggage claim now."

Sounds like the airline needs to get it together!

Milano has always been proudly open about her breastfeeding, the mama Instagrammed a pic breastfeeding her daughter Elizabella Dylan, captioned, "Ah, the joy of suckling! She lovingly watched the fishlike motions of the toothless mouth and she imagined that with her milk there flowed into her little son her deepest thoughts, concepts, and dreams."

NEWS: Alyssa Milano Reacts to Her Controversial Breastfeeding Selfie

When Milano opened up to The Talk about the controversy surrounding the selfie, she said, "Not only is it beautiful, but it's also a necessity," she added. "I'm feeding my kid."

Then she pretty brilliantly pointed out on Twitter why everyone needs to kind of get over it, asking, "No disrespect to Kim but... people are offended by my breastfeeding selfies & are fine with her (amazing) booty cover?"

Alyssa Milano is a champion of breastfeeding again and again and again!
