Alyssa Milano is continuing to speak out about bottles of her breastmilk that were confiscated at the Heathrow Airport in London.

“I realize there are much larger issues going on in the world. And I don’t want to turn this into a bigger issue than it is but I will say this … breastfeeding my children has been one of the greatest joys of my life,” she tells PEOPLE in a statement.

“Every ounce of milk I’m able to produce for my child is nothing short of a miracle and to watch that milk be thrown away without any regard for my baby, was heartbreaking. It’s not the fault of the security in the airport; they’re following orders to keep us all safe. But I do I feel it is a policy that needs thoughtful reconsideration.  I’m glad this has started a dialogue. My only hope is to make things easier for moms, breastfeeding and formula feeding moms, everywhere.”

The actress first called media attention to the issue when she posted several Tweets about it on Thursday, including one where she wrote,”Why can you test my toiletries to make sure they are safe but you have to throw away my breast milk?”

Alyssa Milano‘s pot of liquid gold is running dry.

The actress found Heathrow Airport in London less than charming when her bottles of breast milk were confiscated while she passed through security.

Nine hours after admitting that pumping on a plane was “difficult,” the actress — mom to daughter Elizabella Dylan, 7 months, and son Milo Thomas, 3½ — took to Twitter again to express her upset when her hard work did not pay off.

“@HeathrowAirport just took my pumped breast milk away. 10 ounces. Gone. Not okay,” Milano, 42, Tweeted.

“They said they would let the pumped milk through if I had the baby with me. Why would I need to pump if I had the baby with me????”

Alyssa Milano Shares Sweet Breastfeeding Pic Before Appearing on The Talk

03/06/2015 at 08:50 AM ET

Alyssa Milano isn’t ashamed of breastfeeding and she doesn’t want you to be either.

The mother of two pulled a Gisele on Thursday, sharing a sweet pic of her nursing 6-month-old daughter Elizabella Dylan on Facebook just ahead of her appearance on The Talk.

“Make-up, hair in rollers, breastfeeding and being prepped by our producer for #TheTalk,” she captioned the shot.

This isn’t the first time Milano, 42, has posted a pic featuring her nursing her daughter. Last year, she responded to backlash from critics after she shared a similar shot on Twitter.

“I got really sad about it,” she said on The Talk in December. “Because … who are we, that now we get upset as human beings if we see a woman feeding her baby? It’s crazy to me. Crazy, crazy, crazy.”

Alyssa Milano was more than ready to step into her new role of mommy-of-two.

“It’s pretty great. I think I was a little nervous that it was going to be harder,” Milano told PEOPLE at the 2014 March of Dimes Hollywood Luncheon on Friday. “But really it’s the same amount of hard. It’s all hard.”

Milano, 41, and husband David Bugliari welcomed daughter Elizabella Dylan in September. The baby girl joined big brother Milo Thomas, 3.

And the proud mama couldn’t help but share that son Milo has happily become her little helper.

“Milo has made it so easy on us as far as, there’s no jealousy or any of that, which I guess I got really lucky because normally it’s crazy,” Milano says.

Alyssa Milano: How I Knew I Was Having a Girl

07/23/2014 at 11:00 AM ET

Alyssa Milano could tell something was different about her second pregnancy when she found herself feeling nauseated — a fate she avoided while carrying son Milo Thomas, who turns 3 next month.

“I had morning sickness this time, but it went away right at 12 weeks,” Milano, 41, says in the August/September issue of Fit Pregnancy, on newsstands Thursday. “With Milo, I didn’t have a minute of morning sickness. So I knew it was going to be a girl.”

The Mistresses star and husband David Bugliari announced in May that they’re expecting a daughter in early fall. And just like last time around, she’s setting aside obsessing over her image to focus on delivering and nurturing her baby girl.
