Since a formula recall back in February that included brands such as Similac impacted supplies, parents nationwide have been struggling in the face of an ongoing baby formula shortage.
As the brand's parent company Abbott is one of the four largest formula manufacturers in America, parents have been scrambling to find alternatives. And that search has been particularly scary for parents whose children have allergies and rely on specialty formulas that are now virtually impossible to find.
Although pediatricians have confirmed that parents will do more harm than good by trying to concoct their own homemade formulas, it's not hard to understand the desperation that would influence such a decision.
And that desperation has some parents driving for hours to find a place that still stocks the formula they need to keep their babies regularly fed.
But since one mom with a baby who can't have just any formula tried that and came home empty-handed, she found herself at a loss when she recorded a somber video.
