...Caught out by the current 'no fly' restrictions?

We've been vacating in the valleys of Kashmir for the last four weeks and were due to fly back to the UK today but our flights have been cancelled!

The wife and kids are fine about the extended vacation - my only concern is that we only have 7 days worth of Hypo-Allergenic formula for my youngest who has cows milk allergy.

I've sent the manufacturers an email (will try to call them during UK business hours) to see if they can help me find a local stockist or an alternative product.

He is on Nutramigen 2 whitch is made by a company called Mead johnson.

Please include us and the millions of others left stranded miles from home, in your Prayers...

PS - The net connection on my iPhone is a little slow, but I promise to keep anyone interested in my adventure updated...

PPS - Is this my first post without a smiley :doh:

Cheers Ron :thumb:

I would call the Hotel and check before leaving - but I'm sure you will be alright as other travelling to Singapore from Europe won't be checking in anytime soon :shhh:

I'm surprised you have time for a vacation with all th holidays you have :lol:

I need a holiday from being home all the time.

I only had 6 months holiday last year.

And I've only been on holidays since 19th January this year. I'm due back at work mid-May. :(

That second picture is nearly as scary as a p38 losing coolant!!! :wink:

I had an email back from the manufaturers at 08:15 BST - Unfortunately they do not sell that product in Asia /:( They advised me to contact an allergy specialist and seek a local similar product.

I tried dozens of pharmacies and it appears the locals do not have such allergies and replacement product is not available.

Just seen the BBC news and some flights have been approved for Scotland and northern island...

Goat milk
Thanks Doc, but I should have clarified that the poor mite is allergic to all dairy products.

Might try some soya milk, if I can get some :think:

I'm planning to visit an allergy specialist doctor in the hope that they can reccomend a product.

I've been trying to load this page all day - Now I see why some folk complain (read whinge and moan) about large pictures and snazzy signatures :doh:

I just read a headline that all uk airports are due to be opened at some point tonight. Boy do I miss my broadband connection. I am just outside of an Edge (GPRS) data connection area and my iPhone is struggling :crybaby2:

Good luck on getting back to Blighty.
What might help you out there is to try your little fellow on Goats milk. It is tolerated better by people with Cows milk allergies. My daughter who treats horses with Homeopathic medicines reckons initial studies have suggested that specific proteins known to cause allergic reactions may have been present in cow's milk in significant quantities yet largely absent in goat's milk.
Gotta be worth a try....

Cheers mate - After your post (sorry Doc, no offence) I am inclined to try a little - To mitigate the risk we're going to mix one drop of goats milk in a tea spoon of water and Pray for the best.

We're going to do it later today after I return from Islamabad, where I'm going to try and track down an allergy specialist of unquestionable character (I know, I know, they may not exist in Pakistan :doh: ) - should be back in about 10 hours - will defo post the results.
