    Baby food, breast milk and prepared milk

    Travelling with your baby

    While there are restrictions on the liquids you can take in your hand luggage, when travelling with a baby you’re allowed to take enough baby food, sterilised water, prepared baby milk and expressed breast milk (up to 2 litres) for the journey. Any additional liquids will need to be packed in your checked-in baggage.

    Travelling without your baby

    If you are travelling without your baby, liquid items should be stored in containers not exceeding 100ml or in your checked-in baggage. However expressed breast milk up to 2 litres is permitted even if you are travelling without your baby.

    Reserve & Collect baby milk service

    At Heathrow, we like to simplify travelling for everyone… including babies. Let us help you prepare your little one’s carry-on with our Reserve & Collect baby milk service. Simply order baby milk, baby food and everything you need for travelling with your baby and we’ll have it ready for you at the airport after security.
