If you have an infant with you then you can bring a "reasonable" amount for the trip. Several cans or bottles are exempt from the carry on restrictions but must be declared at Security. You can bring an unlimited amount in your checked luggage but you need to declare it for Chinese Customs. It is up to them as to whether they will allow it through. They have been known to go either way.2 comments
