I wonder how many moms will decided to use formula if they have to travel a lot?
A Hawaiian mom said she was embarrassed after the TSA asked her to "prove" her breast pump was real by filling the bottles before being allowed to board.
Strand said, "I asked him if there was a private place I could pump and he said no, you can go in the women's bathroom."
Strand describes being embarrassed and humiliated as she had to pump her breast in front of every individual coming into that bathroom. This was the only place to do it since there was only one outlet.
"I had to stand in front of the mirrors and the sinks and pump my breast, in front of every tourist that walked into that bathroom," Strand told KITV.
After the bottles were full, Strand was allowed to board the plane.
