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.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Did not. Guess we can give it a shot next time.

Just interesting how in Asia they just assumed everything was for the baby and let it go.

I never knew milk has to be bought before YT.

Just so I'm clear; you'll drink the chametz, but it's not a problem since it's butel?...

That may work, but doesn't it need to be bought before YT so if there is any chametz its bittul with the hefker?
There is a concept of not buying anything on Pesach as if it is by any slight chance Chametz you're oiver on an issur kareis, as opposed to having it before then it would be battul.

Makes sense. But not when you're consuming it.

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

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.

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.
