Even if you're not affected, you've no doubt heard that there's a massive baby formula shortage across the U.S. More than 40% of formulas are currently out of stock, according to the New York Times. Experts say that if you're in the group in need of formula, you should contact your pediatrician first. If they can't help you out with samples or point you in the right direction, consider looking for a Human Milk Bank near you or switch to a different formula that is in the same category as what your baby typically drinks. Whatever you do, don't try to make homemade formula as it will likely not be as nutritious or digestible as something store-bought would be. The Biden administration is working to fix the issue, but for now, the shortage remains a problem for many parents.
