Good Evening fellow EBer's,

I just had a quick question, I am taking my 4.5 month old son on a plane for the first time on boxing day and he is bottle fed, our flight is 3.5 hours long so he is going to need 1, possibly 2 bottles over the course of our trip (whether at the airport or in the air).

Now my question is can I take ready made bottles through security at the airport?

I only as I know I am unable to take water for myself.

Domestically there are no issues taking fluids on board for either of you.

Even internationally there are no fluid restrictions for bubs.

Just make sure you take extra bottles in case of delay.

Internationally I have been asked to taste the baby bottle fluids at security checks.

I take cool boiled water in the bottles and add the measured formula when needed.
