    i would suggest u take formula with u as even if the formula is available in the country u are visiting sometimes it is not the same.

    i've taken short holidays with baby but carried my formula as well as distilled water bottles from here (just to be safe) as there was just 3-4 litres to carry

    Thanks for the advise actually we just going back to home town UK, guess u right better take the formula with us and may be the water (worry that baby will not get use to the water in UK as which is different from HK )?I know AA are very stright of what u carry on board especially liquid and powder am i right ? I need to take at least 4-5 meals on board for my baby that I'm a bit worry they will not allow.

    I carried baby food on board and it wasn't a problem at all. You can carry the entire pack of baby food if you want, that's what I did because it was easier for me.

    As far as change of water, I did not carry bottled water from here. It was too much of a trouble. Just buy bottled water in UK or boil the water (which is not required since tap water is drinking water). The point is my baby did not get used to the difference in water, so, probably yours too will not get used to UK water and when you come back the baby will just drink HK water like before.

    Don't worry too much. Like us, babies also learn to get accustomed to these changes.

    Enjoy your holiday
