Can I bring 8oz sealed bottles of pediasure with me for my toddler on a flight?
I am traveling from St.Louis Lambert airport with my toddler in a week. She drinks a special pediatric drink called Pediasure everyday because she is underweight and unwilling to eat much solid food. She has about 4 a day. We will be traveling all day long and I'm worried about not being able to feed her if Pediasure is not allowed. It can't be placed in clear bottles or her sippy cup for more than 2 hours before it spoils. Does anyone have experience with this particular drink or scenario?

Call the airlines. You probably need a note from the doc.
Yes, you may.See site below.
Yes, as per http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/children/index.shtm#formula, but I would carry only what you will need in your carry on luggage, as they may open the carton and it would therefore spoil before use.
Yes, you can. See this page from the TSA site that speaks to that specific kind of issue: http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/children/formula.shtm One relevant section from that page is this: = = = = = = = = When carrying formula, breast milk, or juice through the checkpoint, they will be inspected, however, you or your infant or toddler will not be asked to test or taste breast milk, formula, or juice. Our Security Officers may test liquid exemptions (exempt items more than 3 ounces) for explosives. Officers may ask you to open the container during the screening process. When traveling with your infant or toddler, in the absence of suspicious activity or items, greater than 3 ounces of baby formula, breast milk, or juice are permitted through the security checkpoint in reasonable quantities for the duration of your itinerary, if you perform the following: 1. Separate these items from the liquids, gels, and aerosols in your quart-size and zip-top bag. 2. Declare you have the items to one of our Security Officers at the security checkpoint. 3. Present these items for additional inspection once reaching the X-ray. These items are subject to additional screening and Officers may ask you to open a container. = = = = = = = Good luck.
