I brought a thermos bottle with me and after security I just went to Starbucks and got a cup of hot milk and poured it into the thermos. It was still nice and warm by the time he drank it on the flight.
I think we decided I'll try to bring one carton of UHT milk through security and if they take it, well, it's no big deal. And then I'll also bring an insulated flask and fill it up from one of the shops if I need to (Starbucks is a great idea! Then I don't even need to heat it up!). The problem really with buying it is keeping it a safe temperature. I doubt they have UHT milk in the airport, though maybe I'm wrong. But for an 11 hour flight, I'll probably need it to last about 5+ hours at room temperature. I'm not comfortable just buying milk and leaving it out for 5 hours. Last thing I need is a tummy bug when we're all the way on the other side of the world! But I have a hot/cold flask that I use for coffee and tea for work anyway, so I'll just bring that and top it up with milk I buy in the airport if I need to. That keeps cold liquids cold for 24 hours and hot liquids hot for 12. A bit of an extra hassle to lug so much stuff, but if it saves me chasing down a flight attendant to beg for milk in the middle of the flight, then that's enough for me! Thanks all.

Totally understand this (especially when it comes to kids and holidays) but we have milk at work which is left out for 8hrs at room temperature and no-one has ever got sick from it. In a really, really hot summer it can turn by the afternoon, but while this might make you immediately be sick, pasteurised milk which has only just started to spoil is unlikely to contain the type of bacteria/virus that would cause a proper tummy upset. The aeroplane toilet and recycled air is probably more of a concern!! The flask is a great idea though This must be about the only time we can feel grateful that there is a Starbucks every few yards!!
