I'm traveling for a conference next month and I'm considering shipping my frozen pumped milk back home rather than waiting to bring it back on the plane.

I would definitely call one of the shipping companies and ask them. I know people have done it, some of the milk banks offer it as an option.

Here are some tips on shipping BM: http://www.mother-2-mother.com/bfandtraveling.htm#shipping

I have used this method when donating milk to another mother directly and it worked well.
