Moms who have PCOS, mastectomies, or have to work full time job and aren't able to pump at work, people who adopted, moms who had their supply interupted by an emergecy or medical prodecure and their supply didn't come back, premature babies who need to eat before milk comes in, babies with certain alleries, the list goes on and on.

Not everyone has the luxury of breastfeeding. Infant mortality rates were 10 times higher before formula existed.

Democrats are literally a domestic enemy...their policies, corruption, regulations, and incompetence are destroying every facet of this nation from energy to baby formula.  RINOs are in the same category and while some of Trump's endorsements are questionable, the vast majority are "America First" candidates.

As Bongino so correctly says: "Republicans won't solve all your problems, but Democrats are the cause of all your problems..." Vote Democrats (and RINOs) out of office, simply for the sake of survival.

My wife is breastfeeding our newborn son every 2 hours, 24 hours a day. But she has PCOS so its not enough to sustain him. We have no choice but to supplement with formula.

So no, I wont stop with "this bullshit."

ETA: Also breastfeeding is about 100x easier than formula feeding, so I don't know where this notion of moms being lazy came from. Buying formula, washing bottles, mixing formula, heating bottles, it all sucks. Breastfeeding is free and easy when it works, but again its not always an option.

You don't even need to start a company. Baby formula can be mixed up in your kitchen. Even better, momma will probably produce plenty.

The trouble is once the milk is gone, it doesnt come back. Thats regardless of if they stopped voluntarily or there was a medical issue affecting supply.

You can start weaning quite a bit earlier than a year. My first son had some chicken nuggets at 9 months. Most my kids started having some baby cereals and mashed foods well before the year mark.

Some kids ween and others are born every week. It would be solved quickly by new mothers working harder to ensure good production, older infants weening a little early and some people making home made formula.

It's a sucky situation, but it's pretty unlikely to lead to dead kids as long as they have decent parents.

Ignore people  who that think that women are nothing but a milk factories. They have no idea what a problem this is. I have a family member going through this and it is a painful experience for the whole extended family. I don’t understand how the greatest country in the world has sunk so low that we can’t feed our babies. I won’t say I fully understand what you are going through but I do have a fair idea. I have been running around getting some formula for her and I am thankful that we only have about three months to go.

My nephew has a 15 month old who used formula. They bought some machine that makes mixes and heats the formula for you. Think an expresso machine for babies. It might save you are lot of work.

Pretty sure this formula shortage isn’t forcing women who didn’t want to breastfeed to breastfeed.  This means starting just a few hours after birth and giving up all lunch and 15 minute breaks at work.
It also means yelling at grandma for dumping out a bottle because you CAN’T just ‘go buy more.’

Store bought wasn't really a thing 50+ years ago and making your own worked pretty damn good. People are lazy and self centered today and would rather spend a ton of money then 5 minutes in a kitchen. [we were all adopted as babies, there wasn't ready made formula all over the shelves back then like there is today]

I know there are moms who either can't or don't produce enough but the vast majority is because they don't want to breast feed because it can be a PITA even though companies and society has bent over backward to let them do so.

They won’t need home made if Biden would act. They have formula in the EU but we cannot import it because only a few plants are FDA inspected. Somehow I think the formula sold in Germany, France and the UK are high quality and we can use it.

Abbott makes 40% of the formula sold in the US. One of their plants is shutdown but I have no idea how much of their production is from that plant. I believe they have four or five plants in the US and one in Ireland.

There was a shortage of formula dating back to August of 2021. I can tell you as a fact that it was getting hard to find Similac Pro-Advance before Christmas. Speculation is that people were stocking up because they were fearful of shortages due to possible lockdowns.

Do you remember when it was hard to find 22lr? Think how you felt if you could not take your 8yo to the range. Now imagine how you would feel if you could not feed your 8mo.

Tell me that you don’t know shit about breastfeeding without saying you don’t know shit about breastfeeding.

My wife is blessed to be able to breastfeed. Still, there are plenty of healthy moms who are just unable to. Or stress leads to low production one day. Or baby is allergic to mom’s milk. Or baby just wants way more than mom can make. Or asshole bosses won’t let mom pump at the right times of day and supply goes away.
