Ordering baby supplies from Boots at the airport

How To Order Baby Milk And Baby Supplies From Boots At UK Airports

Many parents have been asking how to order baby milk and supplies from Boots, and how this service works, so here is the procedure.
You can order all your baby essentials and suntan lotion etc for collection after all security checorder baby milk and food from Bootskpoints. This will hopefully save you some time in the security queue as you will have less liquids to be checked and perhaps save a little room in your suitcase too. (Be aware that if you will be in transit at some point of your journey, you may be checked for liquids over 100ml again- again with baby food and milk you will be fine but if your ordered a large suntan lotion bottle, you may have to give that up).

Please note: Orders cannot be made by telephone

Ordering Instructions

1.Visit www.boots.com and add any supplies needed into your shopping basket. You can order baby milk, food, nappies, bottles, sun preparations- Basically anything they sell. The only exception is anything sharp as these will be confiscated by security and no refund will be given.

2.When checking out, please select delivery to store. Delivery is free on orders over £20.

3.The system will ask you to search for a store, please choose your airport. Check carefully that you have selected the correct store as some airports have Landside Stores before security as well as Airside stores and several terminals. A listing of the airports which have Boots is below.

4.You will need to pay for your order in full by credit, debit or Paypal. Your order will then be delivered to your store within 5 working days. Please enter your mobile number online as you will receive a text message when it arrives in store.

5. Boots will hold orders for 28 days after delivery date in their airport stores. Please leave at least 15 minutes to collect your order in store as they are held in a secure area outside of the store.

    • hi Robin, thanks so much for letting me know this. It really helps me keep all the information current. I will amend the info now. Again, thank you for taking the time to let me know! I’ll verify with Superdrug re milk and update that too.

    • Hi Katie- no as long as you don’t go over your hand baggage allowance. Also be aware if you are in transit in another country after the flight from UK, you will be subject to taking the milk through security. The general rule is you are allowed as much as needed for the journey -but everyone’s journey and connection times are different.

  1. Thanks for the information. As far as I can tell (by attempting to make a purchase online at Boots), they only have a Boots store in Terminal 1 of Manchester airport. I am needing to travel domestically first, then internationally. I suppose I will have to risk reserving formula at my layover location.
    To get me through Manchester I will have to bring my own milk. Their security website says anything you bring will be subject to a ‘taste test’ by yourself. Has anyone else experienced this? Do they only make you test one bottle?

    • Hi, thats actually very out of date info. The UK changed the regs in January 2014 so you no longer have to taste milk. It can be subject to other testing by security though, so be prepared if its pre made up formula.

  2. Hi,
    Can I just check that I can order baby food to be collected that will be enough to cover 10 days away, so for example, in excess of 30 pouches?

    Kind Regards
