If you still sterilise bottles, and depending on amenities, either microwave sterilizer bags, or a tupperware container, that you can fill with other things, and milton tablets. We had a set of those stacking cups that went on holiday for years. Take up little room and can be used as plain toy, in the bath, on the beach. Formula is expensive and likely different to what you are used to at home so take with. I used to go with sachets rather than a tin. Evian water is fine for making up bottles. As for the rest, it depends where you are going.

Dummy or bottle for take off and landing if flying to help with ear pressure. Mine always used to go to sleep whilst flying - maybe it's that dull flying hum noise. Lightweight buggy - take it to the gate. You may or may not get it back before baggage collection.

Sling/baby carrier that folds down into your hand luggage.. I always found the return of pushchairs a bit hit&miss. Plus if you have to walk up steps to the plane it gives you a free hand fir the handrail.
