TSA allows breast milk to be brought in your carry-on bag. Breast milk is exempt from the 3.4 ounce liquids rule, so you are allowed to bring larger quantities. The easiest way to avoid issues is to carry on frozen breast milk. Just be aware that if the milk is partially frozen or is slushy, additional screening may be required. It is important to note however that the guidelines do not state a specific amount. The TSA guidelines on breastmilk say:

"Formula, breast milk and juice are allowed in reasonable quantities in carry-on bags. Remove these items from your carry-on bag to be screened separately from the rest of your belongings. You do not need to travel with your child to bring breast milk. Please see traveling with children for more information."

"Reasonable quantities" leaves some discretion to the individual TSA officer. In the event you do experience any problems or encounter an uninformed TSA agent, we recommend calling TSA directly. Their phone number is 1-866-289-9673.
