State officials are letting parents know there are resources available to help them out during a nationwide baby formula shortage.
They recommend contacting a local New York State Women, Infants and Children Office for assistance. Parents can also reach out to their child's doctor to see if they have any samples of formula available. When trying to find formula, it's recommended parents visit smaller stores and drug stores. Anyone who wants to buy formula online should only order from well-recognized distributors and pharmacies.
