Nice checker for what can and cannot officially be brought through security.
My TSA - Home Airport
You may want to print out their policy for under-educated agents.

The final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.

Did you say explicitly that it was for the baby?
We've brought water bottles, yogurts, juice, etc, etc.
Never had an issue, they just swab it.

Plus one. Once had 4  bottles of water and 5 juice boxes. Said it was for baby.
They were like wow that's a lot, then proceeded to swab it and let me go.

Not exactly. Chometz midoraisa is batel bshishim. It's a din drabanan that it is oser bmashehu, even a little bit. That din only applies on pesach. Before pesach it has the regular rules of shishim. So if it's batel before pesach, you can then eat in on pesach

Eating chometz during Passover is prohibition bmashehu, biblically (midoraisa)

Wow.  They wouldn't let us through with yogurt today for our baby.  Tsa claimed we no longer have to remove our shoes and laptops.

I got two water bottles, two apple juice drink boxes and two yogurts through TSA today. They actually pulled my bag to the side  and looked through it and let it go. And it was a small bag with only food and drink so they had to see it.


I was traveling with a baby and a 3YO

TSA asked me to say my name for them.  I commented that the TSA employees used to know how to read. 

(TSA employee: what was that?  Me: Oh, I'm just talking to my wife)

Put two bottles buried in a bag with non food items, they usually stop searching after they find 1.
It has worked for me in the past.

A few weeks ago, I bought some nice new (kosher!) toothpaste in Crown Heights. Then when I got to EWR, the TSA guy pulled it out of my bag and said it's too big! I said I will open it right here and squeeze out the excess 2 ounces into the trash. He said I could go back outside and do that if I wanted to but then, obviously, I would have to go through security all over again.

Did I hashtag right?
