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.
Throughout its history, the U.S. Breastfeeding Committee has worked to ensure food security for our nation's infants by addressing gaps in the policy landscape with policy, systems, and environmental change solutions that include building an infrastructure for infant and young child feeding in emergencies. We remain committed to this cause and will continue to curate and amplify resources from the field and for the field to equip you to best support the families you serve.
