In this difficult time for families with the formula shortage, Maiker would like to provide the following resources:
Colorado WIC messaging [coloradowic.gov]
(this resource may be helpful for families to identify unsafe formula, find safe formula, and reminders to not make homemade or dilute formula)
Lactation Resource Guides in english and spanish for the Tri-County area as families may be partially breast/chestfeeding and need further support.
Fact Sheet: Helping Families Find Formula During the Infant Formula Shortage [hhs.gov]
FDA Advises Parents and Caregivers to Not Make or Feed Homemade Infant Formula to Infants [fda.gov]
Children’s Hospital CO and the Academy of Pediatrics also have guidance that can be provided to families.
