Hi folks

We're due to have our first flight back to UK with our baby in July where he'll be 8 months. My query is how does it work taking on water for the feeds as the airlines usually have a 100ml limit for liquids but not sure how this applies with babies?

Cheers
JP

The cabin crew will provide (and heat up) water for the formula feeds - just ask.

You can carry more than 100 ml of water in a bottle/flask/thermos. They might ask you to open the bottle and show it but thats about it.

Ive flown a few times with baby bottles - several 9oz bottles of cooled boiled water and formula powder in a tub-never been a problem.

Once the bottles were never even checked, they just acknowledged they were for a baby, second time the man took off the lids and smelt the water and once I was asked to taste it - squirted few tiny drops onto back of my hand and licked it to prove it was just water!

The staff will heat bottles in a jug of hot water but be careful getting them to fill baby bottled for you as a lot of airlines use a hot water tap - which isn't actually the same as boiled water - which is what feeds should be made up from.
