In some case, you can bring water on board to prepare milk for your baby.

In addition, according to Vietnam Airlines baggage regulation and regulations of other airlines, these bottles or containers must be placed in a transparent plastic bag.

They will be confiscated by security personnel to ensure the safety of flight. However, some other items like a nail clippers, plugs, charger, and keys... are allowed on the plane.
Cameras of all kinds will be allowed on the plane. It is highly recommended that cameras should not be put in checked baggage.
