  1. Hello fellow AFF,

    A quick question, I am heading domestically with 2 kids tomorrow, (only BNE to SYD) but my wife is instant that we need to take a bottle of milk for each of the kids as it will be a tricky time of the day.

    My question us, as I have never flown with kids before, is can I pack a small esky and a small quantity of ICE to keep it cold and have no issues with security>

    Thanks guys

    Are you referring to milk as in infant formula? If so, then best bet is to have the bottles with the measured amount of formula in them then just ask the crew for water to reconstitute if needed. Otherwise, you can pack the mini UHT milk cartons which don't need to be kept cool if they only need regular milk. Incidentally, I've taken milk for the kids through dom security without any issues and international too, for that matter.
  3. It will be cows Milk - i cant see an issue... really not domestically

    Won't be a problem. If you wrap the bottle well, or use a thermos, you won't need ice/esky.

    Being WP you will have access to the lounge.

    When I flew internationally last year I took an empty bottle for my 2yo and filled it up with milk from the coffee machine. By the time we boarded and ready for take off it had cooled enough for her to drink it while making the climb and keeping her ears popped.

    This may be a better option for you :)

    I agree, and being in the VA thread may not reach an audience it deserves, so I have spun it off in a modified version to start a new thread.
