White House instructs moms with hungry babies to call doctor’s office for free ‘samples’ of formula

The Biden administration appears to have few, if any answers for the growing list of calamities facing the nation, be it near-record inflation, still rising gas prices, a tanking stock market or the crisis on the southern border, where nearly a quarter-million illegal immigrants are now entering America on a monthly basis.

However, when it comes to American moms being unable to feed newborn babies due to a foreseeable shortage of baby formula, the White House does have an answer: Call your baby’s pediatrician and beg for free “samples” of formula.

…and people want to claim that Biden and his handlers are out of touch with the wants and needs of the American people.

With no immediate solution in sight to the critical shortage of baby formula, the White House posted on Instagram a guide of do’s and don’ts for parents desperately trying to find food for their babies.

The “dos” include switching to a different brand of formula — which is not an option for many babies with intestinal issues — or calling OB/GYN or pediatrician offices to see if they have “in-office samples.” The “do not” guidelines includes watering down formula and making formula at home.

“Super duper, wow you really fixed the problem,” one skeptical social media user replied.

Which is not to say that the Biden White House isn’t there for parents. The caption to the post instructed parents to leave them a message on Instagram… and they’ll get back to them later.

It read: “For more information and resources regarding infant formula, visit hhs.gov. You can also leave us a question in our Instagram Story now – we will be answering more on infant formula later today.”

The crisis was predictable, despite President Biden claiming last week they could have done more if “we’d been better mind readers.”

An Abbott Laboratories plant in Sturgis, Michigan, a major supplier of baby formula, shut down three months ago over Food & Drug Administration concerns about formula containing bacteria. The plant, which shuttered in February, is still closed.

FDA Commissioner Robert Califf recently reassured Americans that the shutdown surely won’t last until the end of the year during an interview with NBC’s “Today” show, saying he feels “very comfortable” the plant should reopen in two weeks.

“We’ve been working closely with Abbott,” he said of the plant closing, later adding, “We don’t expect that to last to the end of the year, by any means.”

The clearest sign that the administration is taking a — well deserved? — beating on the issue in polling was a public service announcement earlier this week featuring first lady Jill Biden and U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy.

A furrow-browed Mrs. Biden summoned her best concerned look to assure moms across America stressing over being able to feed their babies that her husband is “working around the clock” to help them.

The first lady also told parents dealing with hungry babies to call their doctors.

“I know that you have questions. Any parent would. So, call your pediatrician. They can provide you the best, most updated advice,” she said, before offering a word of assurance, “Most of all, know that we’re here for you and you’re not alone.”
