Desperate parents are searching for solutions as retailers have limited inventory of popular baby formulas.
As shortage is getting worse, some retailers started to limit how many customers can buy in a given transaction. Target says it has limited baby formula purchases to four units per customer for online sales.
Local store managers tell LNN that although the shortages are affecting them they do currently have some brands in stock. They add that it is common to be out of the kosher Similac which is a special run.
A local resident who runs a gemach of special formulas for babies on gtubes and severe allergies says, “for the past few months we’ve been getting calls day and night that parents are desperate for formula”.
