Just thought I would warn people about flying and baby milk. Before we left I phone singapore airlines and Heathrow airport about how to carry Joe's baby milk for the flights. (Even though he is over 1, was advised to wait until we got here to put him on cows milk.) Both said that as long as took the ready made milk in cartons that were unopened this would be fine. Went thorough Departures to where they scan your hand luggage and they told me that I couldn't take the milk unless I tasted it. I said that this would then make the milk no good as it would need to be refridgerated. Also said that I only had one bottle with me so what was I supposed to do? They said that this happens all the time and that those are the rules. Well, me already being upset as I had just said goodbye to my mum and brother, started crying but this didn't work. Eventually I filled Joes bottle (then had to taste it, yuk) the rest got thrown away. I don't know what you are supposed to do if you have a young baby that has regular milk feeds. so just thought I would warn people. Maybe if you phoned the airline they would be able to store the milk refridgerated!! Joe had bottle on the first flight and cows milk on the second, now he has diarrhoea!!! Another warning, ask for the milk well in advance if you want it warmed, even if you say slightly warm they like to almost boil it!!! Give yourself time for it to cool.
Hope that helps some people
