Formula shortage has parents searching hours to find just one can

Jameson and Lily Schmidt, five-month-old twins, usually take bottles made with Up & Up Gentle baby formula, but it’s been sold out at Target stores in recent days. The twins’ parents spent hours driving and searching online for the formula, or something close. COURTESY ERIK SCHMIDT

Rev 6:6 NAS “And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not damage the oil and the wine.”

Important Takeaways:

  • ‘It’s pure panic’: Florida parents of twins spent more than 4 hours driving to find baby formula
  • When Erik and Kelly Schmidt, both 35, went into a Central Florida Target store this week to buy their usual baby formula, Up & Up Gentle, for their five-month-old twins, they found an empty shelf.
  • “We spent over four hours going to every Target, different Walmarts, different grocery stores, just finding absolutely nothing,” Erik Schmidt said.
  • Formula is considered the only safe alternative to breast milk, and making your own is not an option. President Joe Biden on Friday promised steps to address the shortage, saying there was “nothing more urgent we’re working on.”
  • Over the weekend, Erik told MarketWatch that he and and Kelly had secured baby-formula supply online. They urge parents who are willing to help to donate their extras to local church or other organizations.
