What can I do if I am low on formula?

I am low on the formula for my 3month old son, I have enough to make it through the night but won’t have any for tomorrow, and my paycheck doesn’t hit my account until tomorrow night. Are there any safe substitutions I can use to keep him fed or any resources to help me get formula until I can get paid and get to the store?

Don’t. Reach out to a local group in your area. Guaranteed someone has extra formula laying around.

Ask on a local buy nothing group, there are usually mom groups like this too. Someone should have something.

Ask your pediatricians office! My son’s kept sending us home with cans because they kept some on hand for mother’s in similar situations but they had an excess and they didn’t want it to expire.

Mom groups yard sale sites and local baby consignment stores are all good places to look!

Call the pediatrician and ask for samples

Do you have a pregnancy center or food bank? They can often point you to the right direction.

I would read up on goat’s milk. That’s what I used to feed an infant I babysat

Ask in local mom groups, call your local pregnancy aid resources, even local churches and food banks usually have formula or resources to get it.
