We are currently experiencing an unprecedented nationwide baby formula shortage. Stock on store shelves is sparse and online orders are taking weeks or more with “out of stock” messages and waitlists.
News this week indicates that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will step in and allow production at the Abbott plant that was shut down, but stock from this will take months.
We know this is very distressing for parents, and we have some information regarding the safest practices for baby formula and alternatives.
