“This is a challenging time for families that rely on infant formula.

Many parents are struggling to make decisions that are best for their families. The Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition

has curated a comprehensive list of resources and recommendations to support pregnant and postpartum families,

healthcare providers, and community members during this critical time. Please take a look at the Infant Formula

Shortage Support and Resources link. We hope this will be valuable and helpful in navigating infant feeding 

for all families.”
