Stressed by the baby formula shortage? Here are 10 tips to know

2 min read
Baby formula is displayed on the shelves of a grocery store with a sign limiting purchases in Indianapolis on May 10.

Amid the ongoing baby formula shortage, parents are looking for alternatives. Here are some tips from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and news reports:

• Check smaller stores and drug stores instead of the big retailers.

• If your normal baby formula has become unavailable, consult your pediatrician’s office. They may have samples in stock and can also recommend the best other options for your child.

• Check with manufacturers: Gerber’s MyGerber Baby Expert,; manufacturer Abbott, (800) 986-8540; manufacturer Reckitt, (800) 222-9123.

• If you can afford it, order online. But do not order formulas from abroad unless you first ensure that they have been FDA-reviewed for nutrition and safety. | Newsphere by AF themes.
