Did you know the TSA has special rules for kids at airport checkpoints? Agents are expected to treat your kids with respect and to do what they can to make the process smooth for you and your kids. There are rules in place to ensure this. Here’s one of those rules: TSA agents can never separate you from your kids. Here’s another: they have to let you pass with any reasonable amount of breast milk, baby food, etc., even if it’s over the 3.4-ounce limit.
To go over these and all the other TSA guidelines for the screening process, check out TSA’s info guide to traveling with children. If you anticipate problems, you can always print out a copy of these guidelines to keep with you as you travel through airports.
