Since the outbreak of COVID-19, there have been significant shortages of infant formulas in some stores. Shortages continue to be caused largely by supply chain issues and a recall of several contaminated baby formula products.
To help ease the impact of shortages, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advises buying no more than a 10-day to 2-week supply of formula. But if you're still struggling to access baby formula at this time, we are going to discuss today what we can do until we get back to normal.
Joining us for this important conversation is Dr. Steven Abrams. Dr. Abrams is a professor in the Department of Pediatrics at Dell Medical School. Abrams has developed and championed the use of stable isotopes to determine mineral requirements and physiological turnover rates in infants and children.
