Are you allowed to take baby water aboard a plane? How about breastmilk in a bottle?

  • I'm pretty sure they only allow you to bring baby formula (powdered) and no water. I would check with the airline that you are going to be flying and ask them their guidelines. They may even have a website that you can check with as rules and regs are known to change frequently.

  • Breastmilk and baby formula are allowed in quantities over the 3 oz limit, you have to tell the TSA agent you have it before screening. I don't know if they'll let you take on the baby water.

  • I got this off the TSA website.
    Medications, baby formula and food, breast milk, and juice are allowed in reasonable quantities exceeding 3.4 ounces (100ml) and are not required to be in the zip-top bag. Declare these items for inspection at the checkpoint. Click here to learn more about 3-1-1

  • I don't think they have a problem with you bringing stuff on for your child.

  • I would pump and store up for the ride. Then, pump an dump in private if need be. Bring a few bottles along for storage.

  • I am sure breast milk is fine, but call the airline to confirm. I couldn't take bottled water or anything, but it was just for me
