baby food
It can be frustrating when your little one is very happy with a particular  milk or food brand and then you are travelling but are unsure of what that country has. Hopefully, the information below will help you decide whether you prefer to stock up and pack your preferred brand or use a similar one overseas. Several brands have the same manufacturer but go under different names, which I’ve highlighted. Another option is use a company that will deliver your brand for you, saving you packing space in your suitcase. For details on these services, please read here.  You can also pre order from Boots The Chemist if you pre-order in advance from UK airports. This list is still work in progress, so please feel free to add the brands you know that are available.

  1. I am hoping someone can advise me of a substitute infant milk powder Morinaga Chil …. that I can purchase in Australia. My granddaughter is on this formula and I would like to find similar when she is visiting Australia for 3 months.

    Thank you

  2. We live in the UK and are visiting New Zealand in April – can you please advise if Aptamil is available in this country or under a different name?

  3. I am in NZ and there is an Aptimal product made by company Karicare that you can use instead of the UK Aptimal. The company advised me that they were very similar.

  4. Hi, I'm from Hungary, and my twins are having Nestlé Beba formula, do not drink any other taste. 🙂 We are planning a trip to the US (NY) and I'm wondering, wether I can purchase the same formula (no probs if the name is differend /just let me know/, but we need the very same taste. 🙂 ) Do anybody has this information, or experience? I would really appritiate it! Thanks in adavnce! Nóra

  5. I am travelling to Bolivia in south America and my baby currently takes SMA comfort, could anybody tell me if there is an equivalent? I know it is a very long shot! thanks

  7. Hi Carrie, thanks for the post above. it's really helpful!
    Just wanted to confirm regarding Nestle NAN, both NAN Products (NAN H.A & NAN Probiotics) are available in Thailand, right? Please kindly advise on this since my baby is on NAN Pro 1 and we're leaving to Chiang Mai for 2 weeks in December. Thanks a lot 🙂

  8. Hi everybody,
    is there someone there who can tell me if a babypowder milk called Nidina (in Italy) is the same product as NAN (in Iceland) both from the producer Nestlé?
    Thanks in advance and Happy Hollidays!!!

  9. I'm currently in chile and wanted to comment that despite the internet saying hey have it I have had NO luck finding enfamil in chile. So I ended up purchasing nan pro.
    Argentina has NAN, nutrilon which is the same as aptamil (guessing on the same packaging) sancor premium bebe which is the same as enfamil (both by mead Johnson) and nestle nido

  10. Hi there, I'm travelling to New Zealand from Canada in a few weeks and am wondering which baby formula is similar to the new "Similac – partially broken down protein with Omega 3 & Omega 6"?
    Thanks!

  11. Hi, I am travelling from UK to Iceland then Canada with 6month old (outward journey) and 7month old on return journey, she will just have started weaning, any hints or tips? She is on aptamil hungry baby formula, does anyone know the equivalents in Iceland and Canada

    Thanks

  12. Hi, this site is amazing and has been very helpful! Well done!
    We are travelling back to the UK from Adelaide South Australia in 2 weeks with our 6 month old. We are flying emirates. The airline told me I am not allowed to bring sterilised water already in bottles as they will supply water. I had planned to bring already filled bottles of sterilised water and then add formula to them as we need during the flight. I was also told that the powder comes under the 100ml rule. I'm now really worried about how I'm going to work feeding her. I want to know that the water is sterilised and be able to take the amount of formula I need. Are you able to clarify for me? Thank you
    Kim

  13. Dear Kim,

    Worry not! You have been given the wrong advice. YOU are allowed to take sterilised water, formula etc and it IS allowed to be over 100ml. I have verified this again with Emirates ( in case there was a late change I wasn't aware of) However, it is the country where the airport is, which sets these rules. If you look on this site by the Australian Govt, http://travelsecure.infrastructure.gov.au/international/lags/exemptions.aspx you will see it verifies this. Maybe print this out to show anyone at the airport if you have someone else who is not aware of the rules.
    ( EK also says baby milk etc us exempt from 100ml rule on this link http://www.emirates.com/uk/english/help/faq/214915/what-is-my-allowance-for-cabin-baggage )

    So worry not, and enjoy your holiday. 😉

  15. Can anyone please advise what NAN HA Gold 2 is called in USA? Travelling from Sydney Australia to Honolulu later in the month.

  16. I'm flying with easyjet soon and on their website they say its ok to fly with baby formula for the flight. Someone told me I have to take sealed tins but is this true or can I measure out the formula in advance into a more portable container?

  17. My child is having a very serious constipation problem!!! Too worry on his health status. Mums, do you have any formula to recomem to prevent cosntipation 

  18. Ashley, there are a lot of traditional remedies are not really working. Last time I had tried one of the traditional remedies for my daughter suggested by my father, but ended up I brought her to hospital. The doctor said that it is really dangerous as those remedies are not proven. However, you should look for those proven and proper remedies.

  19. I think u can try Mamil la, try switching ur milk formula and see the difference in 7 days time. U'll be surprised! This is bcos Mamil has prebiotics and also no sugar which is good for children constipation prevention. Also Mamil has highest DHA level in the market. Hope it helps!

  20. Hi, is anyone aware of a UK alternative to Enfamil A+ stage 1 or a formula that your baby has taken to from UK when previously on Enfamil? Traveling to UK soon and my little one has taken a dislike to the aptamil I was trying as it is available at home!

    Thanks in advance for any help. Fab website.

  28. We are in U.S. and will be traveling through Germany, Czech Republic, France, and Spain soon. Baby drinks Elecare Jr Vanilla or Neocate Jr Vanilla (both are hypoallergenic elemental formulas). I read that Germany has Hipp Organic HA Combiotik. Is it readily available in stores or would I expect to order it in a pharmacy? Is there anything else that is HA elemental that I can easily buy in a store? What about Czech Republic, France and Spain? It seems like every country has radically different names/types of formulas! Thanks in advance for any insight!!

  29. Hi every one, please help me, I can't find any none allergic food for my baby in Iran, she has sever milk , wheat, soy … allergy!

  30. Hello, in Czech Republic you can buy Hipp Organic Combiotik in all of the pharmacies, you dont have to order. Also we have a brand Nutricia which has HA milks available

  31. Hi am living in canada going to visit Saudi Arabia. Am using enfamil for my baby. I wonder does they carry same milk? In Riyadh saudi Arabia …???

  32. Hi there! Great post 🙂 Flying from NZ to UK next week, daughter is on S26 – which is Wyeth – and not available over there. Having a read through of the above is suggesting SMA is probably best alternative, would you agree? Cheers!

  33. Hi,

    I have been living in Switzerland and have been giving my 7 month old Nestle Beba pro 2 along with breastmilk. I will be travelling to India soon and would be there for 3 months. Nestle has Nan Pro 1, 2, 3 in India and I was wondering if it is the same as Nestle Beba? Would really appreciate a clarification on the same.

    Regards
    Mia

  34. Hi I am off to the USA with my 10 months old daughter who is on Aptamil. Does anybody know if there is an equivalent in the US? I am only going 4 days and my worry is on the return? Not sure I will be able to go through security with Formula milk?

  35. My daughter will be visiting us in South Africa from Australia. Her baby girl is on Heinz Nurture formula but I don’t seem to find it in SA what will be the similar formula she can use?

  36. Hi my family and I will be relocating from Brisbane to Thailand in late Jan. I have a 6 month old baby and would like to take with me 6 months worth of formula. Does anyone know the custom rules around this? In total it’ll be about 26 formula cans. The formula is called novolac reflux and I’m not sure if it’s sold in Thailand. Any advice would be appreciated.

  37. Does anybody know if there is an equivalent to SMA First Milk in Canada? We’re going from the UK to Toronto/Niagara for a couple of weeks. Thanks.

    Thanks in advance!
