Baby Milk & Baby Food Brands Found Around The World

One of the first issues I had when visiting other countries with a baby currently on formula milk was if I could find that brand.

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.

I really wanted to avoid filling my suitcase with boxes of formula too. Checkout my packing checklist to minimize over or under packing on your next trip.

Hopefully, my research and information below showing the baby milk and baby food brands found around the world, will help you decide whether you prefer to stock up and pack your preferred baby brand or use a similar one overseas. This is what I wished I could get, all information in one place.

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.

If you have an older baby or toddler, and are travelling abroad, then this guide to full fat or whole milk abroad will help you too.

Regarding baby food and milk available overseas, it’s worth noting that several are made by the same manufacturer but are marketed under a different name.
·      Aptamil, Nutricia Karicare, Karicare Infant, Milupa, Almiron, are all very similar .
·      Mellin, Cow and Gate,
·      Wyeth and SMA

Sterilising When Travelling.

Sterilising when travelling may be a concern you have, but thankfully it has been made easier over the years. I’ve written a detailed post on this covering sterilising when on an airplane, at a hotel and on the go. as well as travelling with formula tips here.

Useful baby milk and food travel products

  • A travel flask. Thankfully, the majority if not all airlines will warm a baby bottle for you. But I found it incredibly useful to either take hot water with me on a flight  or ask for hot water at the beginning of the flight so I could heat up baby milk or baby food exactly when I needed it. The Tommee Tip Bottle and Food Warmer is a flask with a screw on cover container which can be used to put a bottle or a food pouch in to warm up. Very handy!
  • Ziploc bags. Such a multitude of uses, but in this instance very handy for keeping items cool. Many airports will not allow cool packs/icepacks through security. If not, then fill a ziplock with ice for travel and refill at an airport cafe and ask the flight attendants on board your flight. You can easily empty out at security and refill.
  • Disposable bibs can be handy when on the go – especially if you don’t have access to a washing machine. Alternatively, pack a silicone bib which can be wiped clean.

Thank you for your useful article. I have one question, my 2 year old has Gallia powdered milk and for Christmas we are travelling to Kenya. Do you know what other names Gallia goes under? Is it Cow&Gate or Aptamil? Many thanks in advance for any help.

Hi! Does anyone know if Novalac Novarice is available in the USA? From their webiste, they don't seem to have a presence there - the nearest is Novalac Mexico. My baby is allergic to dairy, and unfortunately cannot drink Nutramigen either.
