Due to a historic recall of some forms of infant formula, there is now a nationwide shortage. As the nation grapples with the immediate and present impact of this emergency, we need to do everything we can to support infant food security, including ensuring access to lactation support, supplies, and accommodations, donor milk, and infant formula. Organizations and agencies from across the nation are mobilizing in response to the shortage, offering support according to the scope, stance, and capacity within their reach. A robust infrastructure to support infant and young child feeding in emergencies includes both inventories and sharing of available commercial milk formula and lactation support and resources in every community.
We will get through this immediate situation together and build forward from here.
The Providing Urgent Maternal Protections (PUMP) for Nursing Mothers Act (H.R. 3110/ S. 1658) has passed in the House only to languish in the Senate for nearly a year. There are now only a few more weeks left in this Congress to get the PUMP Act out of the Senate and on the President's desk, and we need your help to do it.
It's very important that members of the Senate hear from constituents – individuals, organizations, and businesses in their district – urging them to pass the PUMP Act. These calls take 2 minutes and can literally make the difference between a vote making it to the floor or not.
