A medical outfit called StarMed just announced that it will be giving away baby formula to those needing. So if any of y'all have relatives or friends in the Charlotte area who are affected, here's some info:

That would probably fix the constipation my son has been suffering with the formula shortage complications.

Apparently ivermectin will, too.

FDA reaches agreement with Abbott Labs to reopen the shuttered plant.

Production could resume in about 2 weeks, and shelves could be stocked a few weeks later.

This. It doesn't seem to be any kind of sinister plot. Hopefully it will be remedied soon.

Not sinister, but this is the problem we've accepted, as a society, when we allow one or two companies to corner the market.

I found this stat interesting .. 50-65% of infant formula is purchased by families in the WIC program.

Biden invokes Defense Production Act to increase infant formula supply

https://www.reuters.com/world/us/biden-invokes-defense-production-act-increase-infant-formula-supply-2022-05-18/

WASHINGTON, May 18 (Reuters) - President Joe Biden took steps on Wednesday to address the shortage of infant formula in the United States, invoking the Defense Production Act to help manufacturers obtain the ingredients needed to ramp up supply, the White House said.

Biden also directed U.S. agencies to use Defense Department commercial aircraft to bring formula into the United States from overseas.

Zero, zilch, nodda, anywhere within a 60 mile radius.  I’ve looked everywhere.  I think I found a partial solution, if you go on Canadian Amazon you can still get formula, however once I input my American address, no dice.  Any ideas?  Greatly appreciated

Go on vacation to Canada and stock up.

Talk to your pediatrician. They might have extra formula or ideas. Otherwise, age depends a ton. If you're past 6 months, they can eat adult food. Just stick with things they can gum down or use the baby food pouches/jars. You can also make your own. Then limit bottles to 1-2 per day as you're able.

Depending on the child, you may be able to move to those solids or whole milk earlier than 6 months/12 months, but I would definitely talk to your pediatrician. I don't envy anyone with 1-3 month olds currently.

Due date is this Sunday, so yeah..

Is breast feeding or pumping an option? If so, worth seeing if the hospital has a lactation consultant you can talk to. My wife breast fed our first until 8 months, but only had success for 2 months with our second. Most insurance plans do cover a pump, so probably worth finding out what your plan covers.

Typically the hospital can send you home with some bottles or premixed formula, but we only got enough from them for about 10-14 days (and that was pre-shortage). If you have a pediatrician picked out, maybe try reaching out ahead of time to see if they can help.

House GOP leaders were among the 192 Republicans who voted against providing $28 million in aid to the Food and Drug Administration to address the shortage of baby formula — within days of criticizing President Biden for not doing enough on the issue.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (Calif.), Whip Steve Scalise (La.) and Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) voted late Wednesday against the measure to provide new FDA funding, which the House approved on a largely party-line vote of 231 to 192. Twelve Republicans broke ranks and joined with Democrats in backing the money.

I think the headlines are a bit misleading.  It does nothing to address the situation in the immediate.  Its basically a blank check to the FDA to make sure this doesn't happen in the future. 

I'm not saying I'm opposed to the bill, cause clearly this is a tremendous failure that needs to be mitigated in the future.  But people are making it seem like it was a bill to provide funds to buy emergency formula or something.

Was an alternative solution to the problem offered?
