Important Information for Families Looking for Infant Formula

During the COVID-19 crisis, many families are having difficulty finding appropriate formula for their infants as stores may have a limited availability.

If you are concerned, here are some helpful tips from Good Shepherd Pediatrics:

  • Do not dilute formula with more water than suggested as it can be dangerous for your child.
  • Call ahead to your local store or pharmacy to check availability on the shelves, behind the customer service desk or in some other locked area.
  • If you cannot find formula locally, try the manufacturer directly or online retailers such as Amazon, Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, RiteAid, Costco or Sam’s Club.
  • Families in dire need can reach out their pediatrician/physician office to see if there are samples available.

If you have any questions about feeding your child during this time, please contact the pediatric feeding specialists at Good Shepherd Pediatrics.
