Baby Food and Nappies in Turkey
You do not need to worry about finding Nappies, Baby Food in Jar or in Powder no matter whereabouts you are in Turkey, obviously not in rural, excluded areas.
Baby Food and Nappies in all kinds can be found in every corner of Turkey, this includes other primary baby and toddler products too. If this sentence is not good enough for you, then I suggest you carry on reading.
Some parents bottle-feed their baby, so they would like to know if a particular brand they are using available abroad.
You need to bear in mind that not every baby milk brand is available in every part of the globe. This is same with Turkey.
You may not find the exact one you are using back at home. However, there are really well known European, quality baby milk powders or food brands easy to find in Turkey
If you are really fussy and believe it is not a good idea to change your babies milk during the holiday, then the best thing to do is that you take extra additional amount with you to Turkey. The other option would be calling or emailing the company to find out whether or not they have it in Turkey.
Most Major Baby and Toddler brands are available
Nappies, Sensitive Baby wipes, Sudocream, Baby Milk Powder, Baby Food in Jar, the list can go on and on. They are all available in Turkey. You can purchase baby products from a Pharmacy or from any Supermarket.
In tourist holiday areas such as Marmaris, Sarigerme, Dalyan, Kusadasi, Antalya even smaller shops are selling necessary baby products knowing that tourist does need them.
In more bigger holiday towns and cities such as Istanbul and Antalya, you can find them only in Supermarkets and pharmacy.
Airports can be very limited, and if you are lucky, then it can be ridiculously expensive.
If your child suffers from a colic or gluten intolerance and you need to use a specific brand, this can be a bit tricky as changing your babies food can cause sleepless nights for both you and your baby, so pack plenty in your suitcase.
For example, if you use Infacol to relieve wind, infant colic and griping pain you can take an extra few bottles with you, however, you may find such products or similar under different names in pharmacies.
When it comes to a specific baby food such as Aptamil Pepti 1 for the dietary management, then this is an entirely different matter as there is maybe the same product under a different name. Still, by the time you managed to find the right one, your baby would suffer. Therefore I would suggest that you take an extra amount with you just to be on the safe side.
However, the best thing to do is to seek professional medical advice from your GP.
Regards to ordinary Baby Milk or Powder and Baby Food in Jar, there is no shortage of them as they do come under different names and brands. Still, most of them are trustworthy known brand names within Europe in general such as Ulker, Milupa, Aptamil, Similac, Bebelac, Pediasure, SMA, and so on.
Nappies do also come under different brand names, amongst those are most prefered by the Turkish parents are Canbebe, Huggies, Prima. These brands and others can be found in most supermarkets. Usually, there is a clear description on the package for age suitability.
VISITING LARGE CITIES WITH BABY AND TODDLER
Narrow Pedestrian Walkways in some parts of the Cities, such as Istanbul, would be probably on the top of the list to take notice as it may become frustrating when using prams.
Baby changing facilities are available in most supermarkets and shopping malls.
It is imperative to know that during breastfeeding, please remember to cover up appropriately as the public won't like it when you do show your breasts in public. There is no 'this and buts, simply cover up.
Oh, don't expect from the Drivers to give you way just because you have got Pram with you. And please do take extra caution when crossing. NO, zebra crossings don't mean anything.
Useful word: Bebek Mamasi - Baby Food
During the Flight: If possible, arrange your babies feeding time during the flight hours. Especially during take-off and before landing, make sure you give your baby something to suck either milk or soothers as this will help to reduce the pressure on their ears which can be painful for your baby.
