    I didnt want to read and run, but I'm not sure if they'll let you take it. I suppose it would be okay to take in the suitcase (as you will check that in I suppose?)but maybe you should call the company that you are flying with and ask?

    We took a tub of formula to France with us (we did take the ferry though) and had no problem, maybe give the company your travelling with a call to see what they advise x

    I had to take aptamil comfort to Greece for my lo when he was 7 weeks. I put two tubs in my suitcase and one tub in hubby hand luggage. No problems at all x

    When we went abroad we were not allowed to take ready made formula onto the plane - phone Boots (if there is one at the airport) the day before to make sure they have it in stock. You can buy it at the airport and make it up on the plane. They said even if our own stuff was sealed, we could have tampered with it before hand!! So what you buy airside is fine to take on as hand luggage. The stuff in your suitcase isn't a problem.

    Good luck

    I'm going to aus in dec and rang Manchester airport last week to verfy what I could take, they said I could take tin forumla onto the plane with me as much as my baby needed, but I would have to taste the forumla at customs as we are taking bottles with water in them already so will have to put forumla into one of the bottles and taste.

    This was at Heathrow - my friend works there and found out for me - suppose it depends on airline and how anal they want to be! I just got the ready made cartons in Boots
