Taking baby milk through security

Passengers travelling with small children are allowed to take liquid baby milk and baby food on their flight. These liquids are exempt from the 100ml liquids rule, however we ask you take only what is needed for the duration of the flight. Baby food will still need to be screened however you may also be asked to taste a small amount of the food for security reasons. 

All other products such as baby changing creams are included in the 100ml rule. The 100ml rule explained.

Pre-ordering baby products

You also have the option to reserve and collect baby milk and any other baby products from boots. Orders must be places at least two weeks before travel (to allow for sufficient stock).

Telephone Boots on 0131 335 0422 with the request, payment by card will be asked for over the phone, the goods will then be ordered and set aside for collection on the departure date.

Passengers with a connecting flight can request secure transit bags to seal baby milk for any onward journey. Please be aware that additional bags may count towards cabin bag allowance.
