View Full Version : formula feeds on flight
im going to the uk at xmas bubs will be 14 weeks old how would i transport formula feeds looking at the klm website it says you can take on board formula feeds as an exception to the new liquids rule, i was going to take 6 bottles of prebolied water and powder separete to make fresh feeds each time anyone know if they allow this??
We flew over to the UK at Easter with Cathay Pacific when our son was nine weeks old.
We took dry formula in a formula container... plus we had some of the s26 sachets as back-up. We also took 3 baby bottles with water in them for each leg of the journey (we had a stop-over in Hong Kong both ways). We found that to be sufficient... and even if you did happen to run out of water... I'm sure the air hostesses would be happy to wash your bottles and put more boiling water in them for you (remember that there are no microwaves on planes)Another tip is to take the miltons tablets for sterilising on the go... they were fab.
We really had no troubles getting through customs with our formula/bottles... except for at Heathrow on our way back out of the UK... they made me take a sip of water from each bottle to prove that it wasn't anything dangerous.
We found travelling with a young baby quite easy... considering that we had the bassinette seat on the plane (hope you've booked this) and he was still small enough and light enough to carry around in a baby carrier.
I wish you all the best for your journey.
thanks for the info, just called the airline and the bassinet is confirmed for all flights.
Bubs is on heinz nuture starter and you dont get a single serve of this just the heinz nuture gold variety i would swap her but im a bit concered as she's had no problems with the formula at all, i was thinking i could get a few formula containers rather than take 900gram tin on board do they allow this or does the formulato be packaged??
