 Formula Feeding

"Accessing infant formula – information from First Steps Nutrition Trust

There are reports of parents being unable to purchase infant formula. We have been informed that retailers do have stock and continued supplies of infant formula at this time. The main reason shelves have been bare in some shops is because of stockpiling.

Local stores, pharmacies and corner shops do not seem to be experiencing the same empty shelves that the main supermarkets have had. Many pharmacies will order products for their customers if asked.

Parents should be advised that stage 1 / first infant formula should be used for infants in the first year of life:

▪ If you are unable to get your usual brand of first infant formula, don’t worry – you can use any first infant formula as all preparations have a similar nutritional composition to comply with legislation.

▪ Don’t use stage 2 follow on formula for any baby under 6 months – only use first infant formula.

▪ If you are using follow on formula for a baby older than 6 months and cannot access this, then use first infant formula.

▪ If you are using other milks such as anti-reflux milk, comfort milk, etc. and can’t access these, then use first infant formula.

▪ Always make up infant formula as per manufacturers guidance – do not be tempted to add more water to make it last longer as diluting the milk could endanger your baby’s health.
