This Mom Shared How The Formula Shortage Is Affecting Her Baby, And It’s An Awful Reality Parents Are Facing Right Now

And a mom named Kayzie Weedman recently decided to give some insight into what it’s like for parents who formula-feed their kids. In her viral TikTok that has been viewed over a million times, she says, “Let’s talk about the formula shortage that is plaguing the US right now, because more people need to know about this. You go to your local Target, your local Walmart, and you think you’re going to get the formula your baby needs? Nope. Shelves are bare. And there are babies who can’t have just any formula that’s on the shelf.”

“I’m going to insert a picture of what my daughter looks like when she has cow’s milk because she has a huge cow’s milk protein allergy. So, what am I going to do when I go to the shelves and can’t get the formula that I need? The pharmacist who fills her prescription formula can’t fill it because they can’t get it — it’s back-ordered six months and I just have to sit there and stare at empty shelves and not know what I’m going to do next.”


“Formula is not available on any of the shelves. They’re empty — nowhere near three hours near me [has it]. Can’t get the formula. What are we going to do? Where do we go from here? How do formula moms feed their kids?” Kayzie then added a photo of what the formula shelves look like at stores near her:
