Resources During Infant Formula Shortage
UCSF lactation consultants, OB-GYNs, and pediatricians gathered information about national and local formula resources, formula-use best practices, human milk & donor milk program options, and UCSF lactation services. If, after reviewing the UCSF resources, you need more information, please reach out to your care team: UCSF Lactation Consultants, your pediatrician, or your OB provider.
