Formula Shortage - Union County Moms

As moms, we’re always looking for hacks for problems big and small – but we can’t mess around with baby formula!  🍼 

While a shortage continues, get your advice from your trusted professionals – like child’s doctor.

We spoke with Dr. Krissy Satchi, a pediatrician in Danbury, CT, who warns that some of the solutions—like watering down formula—may be dangerous. 🏥 

Here are some more red flags.


Until the shortage is over, consider these 4 ways to find formula safely:


  1. Order Directly – Dr. Satchi suggests looking at which gives suggestions for formula swaps (check with your pediatrician before switching.) Your particular brand’s website may also have guidance.


  1. Check In Your Facebook Moms’ Group. – Moms can keep an eye out and post if they spot any – or may be able to share.


  1. Consult Your Doctors – Ask your hospital maternity ward and/or pediatrician for samples. Your pediatrician may also be able to order certain formulas that are medically necessary. 


  1. Think Local – Check with your local pharmacy or store – they may be able to share when shipments come in.
