The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and pediatricians are urging parents not to feed babies homemade formula as the nationwide baby formula shortage worsens for helpless infants and their panicked parents.
Pediatrician are offering alternatives as a lack of leadership at the federal level has left parents without answers about how to feed their children.
Do Not Serve Babies Homemade Formula
The FDA advises parents and caregivers to not make or feed homemade infant formula to infants. Homemade infant formula recipes have not been evaluated by the FDA and may lack nutrients vital to an infant’s growth. It is important for parents and caregivers to remember that infant formula can be the sole source of nutrition for infants and is strictly regulated by the FDA.
Dieticians with the Goodhouse Keeping Institue Nutrition Lab spoke with two pediatricians regarding the harmful effects of homemade formulas and potential avenues parents can take for short-term solutions to the acute crisis, Good Housekeeping reported.
Pediatrician Tanya Altman, M.D., F.A.A.P, who founded Calabasas Pediatrics, told the outlet that formula “is a very complex nutrient-dense product made from years of development and clinical trials specifically for the needs of growing and developing babies.”
“Homemade infant formulas often do not have the correct ratio of important nutrients such as protein, fat, vitamins and minerals,” she added. Altman emphasized that nutrient deficiencies and electrolyte imbalances can arise from using homemade formulas, which in turn, could impede growth and bring about developmental issues.

Stephanie Middleberg, M.S., R.D., founder of Middleburg Nutrition, highlighted that homemade formula could harbor contaminants.
“Homemade infant formula is not sterile and there are many possible sources of bacterial contamination, including unclean water and ingredients that can easily support bacterial growth and harm the infant,” she explained.
Diluting Formula Is Not a Safe Alternative
David Abrams, M.D., F.A.A.P., who formerly served as chair of the American Academy of Pediatrics’s National Committee on Nutrition, wrote in a Healthychildren.org article that diluting baby formula is not an alternative to the shortage and can result in severe health consequences for a baby:
No. While it may be tempting to water down formula to stretch it out, it is not safe to do that. Always follow label instructions or those given to you by your pediatrician. Watering down formula is dangerous. It can cause nutritional imbalances in your baby and lead to serious health problems. Always mix formula as directed by the manufacturer. [Emphasis Added]
Switching Baby Formula
Altman urged parents to consult with their pediatrician before switching formulas if their child is on a specialized formula due to allergy and sensitivity and has had adverse reactions to other formulas.
Middleberg told Good Housekeeping that any transition ideally would be to a formula with a similar protein source that the child is accustomed to, such as a goat milk protein or cow milk protein.

She added that the switch should be gradual and slow, pointing out that a period of gassiness may arise, but it should normalize. Should things not improve or worsen, parents should immediately alert their pediatrician.
For most babies, it is OK to switch to any available formula, including store brands, unless your baby is on a specific extensively hydrolyzed or amino acid-based formula such as Elecare (no store brand exists). Ask your pediatrician about recommended specialty formula alternatives available for your baby.
In his article, Abrams recommends contacting pediatricians, who may be able to procure the products from formula representatives or charities. He also says parents can reach out to their local Woman, Infants, and Children (WIC) program, which may have knowledge as to where formula can be purchased.
He advised parents and caregivers to look through social media that are dedicated to formulas and infant-feeding, noting that members of the page may know where to find the sparce products.
Abrams also recommended parents purchase formula online from domestic pharmacies and well-known distributors – if they can afford it – until the shortgae ceases.
Cow’s Milk and Toddler Formula
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes:
At 12 months old (but not before), your child can be introduced to cow’s milk. Before your child is 12 months old, cow’s milk may put him or her at risk for intestinal bleeding. It also has too many proteins and minerals for your baby’s kidneys to handle and does not have the right amount of nutrients your baby needs.
Abrams wrote that cow’s milk is certainly not ideal but says “in a pinch,” it is a superior alternative to making a homemade formula or diluting baby formula:
This may be an option if your child is older than 6 months of age and is usually on regular formula (not a specialty product for allergies or other special health needs). In a pinch, you could feed them whole cow’s milk for a brief period of time until the shortage is better. This is not ideal and should not become routine. However, it is a better option than diluting formula or making homemade formula. The most important concern with giving an infant over 6 months of age cow’s milk is making sure they get enough iron. Be sure to include plenty of iron-containing solid foods in their diet while you are using whole cow’s milk. You may also talk with your pediatrician about giving your baby an iron supplement.
He echoed the sentiment while speaking with CNN:
We discourage the use of cow’s milk until a year of age but it’s certainly true that as the baby is close to a year of age, especially if it’s simply no formula to be found, that you could use either that or a toddler formula. Neither are ideal, but the closer you are to the year, especially for the short term, those are alternatives.
He urges parents and caregivers not to use almond milk or plant-based milks as they do not have adequate proteins and minerals.

Altman emphasized the importance of giving babies infant specified formula for the first six months after birth but said some flexibility arises after that point in terms of using a toddler formula, according to CNN. She urged parents to speak to their children’s pediatricians before taking such action.
In his article, Abrams emphasized that toddler formulas are not recommended for infants but said if absolutely necessary, it can be given to babies close to a year old, but only for a couple of days.
Altman told CNN that some products made in Australia and Europe are high quality but urged parents to seek reputable distributors.
“Not all international formulas are created equally, so you may want to make sure you know what you are getting and that it’s a high-quality product,” she said.
Abrams noted in his healthychildren.org article that he is apprehensive regarding imported baby formulas as they are not FDA approved.
“It’s a less-than-ideal alternative but if that’s what they have to do, then that’s what they have to do,” he told CNN.
An FDA spokesperson told CNN that the agency recommends against the alternative as products could be counterfeit.
Here we go again: MONKEYPOX is the next “scariant” being unleashed on the world to demand vaccine compliance
(Natural News) Oh no! Another scary-sounding disease called “monkeypox” is supposedly spreading, which means the powers that be are getting ready to unleash another round of plandemic tyranny that is sure to include yet another magical new “vaccine” delivered at warp speed.
The World Health Organization (WHO), which we know is actively engaged in bioweapons research, launched an emergency meeting in the United Kingdom to discuss the alleged threat of monkeypox. The United Nations arm claims that “cases” of the disease are expected to “double” from nine to 18, requiring intervention.
Authorities are already stockpiling more smallpox vaccines, which they say will treat people who may have already been exposed to monkeypox. The UK government has about 5,000 injections in its existing national stockpile and has ordered another 20,000 as a supplement to that.
According to the “experts,” homosexual and bisexual men are the number-one spreaders of monkeypox, so perhaps there will be a “remedy” released just for them to help stop the spread.
“One potential course of action to be raised will be whether vaccination with the smallpox vaccine made by Bavarian Nordic, known as Jynneos in the U.S. and Imvanex in the UK, should be used for contacts of people known to be infected,” reports the Telegraph.
“The vaccine is only approved in the UK for protection against smallpox – despite the virus being eliminated since 1980 – but can be used ‘off-licence’ to protect against [monkeypox].”
Is monkeypox a gay disease?
Even though ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) were completely off-limits for use against the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) because that would have been off-label, it is apparently just fine to start injecting suspected monkeypox cases with smallpox vaccines.
The “experts” claim that the smallpox jab is the only non-replicating virus in the world for smallpox or monkeypox, reducing a person’s risk of disease by about 85 percent.
“If a person receives the jab within four days of infection, the vaccine can modify the course of the infection and improve their prognosis,” the Telegraph claims.
“There is growing concern over the outbreak, which constitutes at least nine cases in the UK and has been seen in various other nations. Health teams have been deployed worldwide to isolate and contact trace affected people, with gay and bisexual men urged to pay particular attention to any new rashes or lesions on their body, particularly their genitals.”
Of the nine cases of monkeypox that have been identified in the UK so far, six of them occurred in men who have sex with other men. This suggests that monkeypox might be a gay disease.
“We are urging men who are gay and bisexual to be aware of any unusual rashes or lesions and to contact a sexual health service without delay if they have concerns,” announced Dr. Susan Hopkins, the UK Health Security Agency’s (UKHSA) chief medical advisor.
Prof. Kevin Fenton, also of the UKHSA, added that he wants everyone to be “aware of the signs and symptoms, which include rashes around the mouth, as well as around the genital area.”
New cases of monkeypox are also said to be appearing right on schedule in France, Italy, Sweden and Australia, as well as in the United States, Spain, Portugal and Canada.
With the way the media is talking about monkeypox, it would not be any surprise to see this become the new “covid,” replete with mask mandates, social distancing edicts, and eventually jab mandates once another Operation Warp Speed-type vaccine drive is launched as the “cure.”

In their quest to live forever, evil elitists admit through “science” that children and babies are being harvested for their life essence
New research from Stanford University suggests that the blood, organs and other body parts of children and babies are a fountain of youth that could provide endless life for those who partake.
Researchers tested their hypothesis on mice, implanting the brains of baby mice into adult mice. The result was an improvement in brain capacity in adult mice, a process that experts say can also work in human applications.
An examination of the implants showed that fluid in the new adult brains had “woken up,” including the regeneration of neurons and myelin, the latter being a fatty material that protects nerve cells within the hippocampus, the memory center of the brain.
In reporting on the study, the U.K.-based Telegraph newspaper nonchalantly tweeted that siphoning the life essence from innocent babies and giving it to adults who hope to live forever has long been “revered” in “cultures” throughout history.
The blood of the young, the paper added, can help slow the aging process. (Related: Remember the adrenochrome conspiracy theory? It seems this was conspiracy fact after all.)
“Youth transplants” could become available in just a few years
Based on the findings, Stanford scientists are already positing that the general public might soon be able to obtain a baby’s blood and use it for anti-aging purposes such as curing dementia.
“Experiments are even showing that young blood itself can reverse the aging process, perhaps even curing Alzheimer’s disease,” the study revealed.
This life-extension technique is said to have already been used by former North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il to help him live longer. Reports suggest that he injected the blood of young, healthy virgins in an attempt to lengthen his life.
“Harvesting the blood and body parts of the young in the hope of achieving immortality has long been a familiar trope in horror novels and conspiracy theories,” the Telegraph further tweeted.
Sarah Knapton, writing for the paper, revealed that so-called “youth transplants” may only be a few years away. Soon, Big Pharma could bring to market baby’s blood drugs that the elderly would be prescribed in order to cure their ailments.
If you think it sounds lunatic, think again. They are revealing all of this now, probably because it has been happening at the upper levels of society for many years.
Only now are they going public with it, acting as though it is some new breakthrough when the reality is that it has probably been going on for a while now, hence why there has been an aggressive push to keep abortion legal.
The Planned Parenthood baby body parts racket that we have been reporting on for a few years now is more than likely connected to the youth transplants industry. Perhaps the publishing of this new Stanford study is an attempt to hijack the narrative ahead of the whole thing being blown wide open on the world stage.
“I am convinced this has already been happening, which is why the sick, deranged, pro-choice putzes have been so worked up,” wrote someone at Summit.news. “Many conspiracy theorists including ‘Q’ have exposed this.”
Another wrote that these horrors have probably been taking place since before the time of Noah, seeing as how there is nothing new under the sun.

Abortion-loving college students create “Tribe for Death” group to harass their pro-life peers
(Natural News) Students who attend the College of William & Mary in Virginia and love abortion have created a new group to both celebrate the death of unborn babies and rub it in the faces of their pro-life peers.
The “Tribe for Death,” as they call themselves, is “Pro abortion” and “Anti pregnancy,” according to the group’s Instagram bio. The social media page currently has 57 followers and 10 posts as of February 16.
As of now, most of the posts are pro-abortion memes that target both the Students for Life group on campus and the pro-life movement at large.
“Hey there tribe for life … DISCLAIMER: this account is 100% a joke aimed only at clowning our campus’s anti abortion group,” reads the Instagram profile for the Tribe for Death.
The College Fix attempted to reach out to the group about its purpose, and to see if there are any other activities it engages in outside of Instagram. As of this writing, the Tribe for Death has not responded.
“The Instagram page is aimed at Tribe for Life, the campus pro-life organization that is affiliated with the national Students for Life of America,” writes Sophia Corso for The Fix.
Why hasn’t Instagram banned Tribe for Death for bullying pro-lifers?
According to Corso, the sole purpose of Tribe for Death, upon deeper investigation, is to harass William & Mary’s pro-life students and their groups. It is a bullying endeavor, in other words.
This would seem to go against Instagram’s “community standards,” but since it is a left-wing cause, it is apparently not a cause for concern. Were it the other way around with the Tribe for Life harassing and bullying the pro-death cult, however, Instagram probably would have already taken action.
A representative from Students for Life of America (SFLA) says it has tried to get in contact with the Tribe for Death, but to no avail. This group has also not released “an official statement regarding the Tribe for Death account on Instagram, but they have attempted contact through direct messages to the account,” said Hannah Wolfe to The Fix in an email.
The group did contact the Tribe for Death account “to let them know that their messaging may be potentially harmful to women who have experienced abortion and come across the things they’ve posted,” Wolfe added.
“The group says they are completely pro-woman and want people to always have a safe space to go and feel that the posts made by the Tribe for Death account could hinder women from finding the support that they need.”
Some of the horrific content on the Tribe for Death page includes posts mocking preborn babies, as well as pro-life tactics that involve educating people about fetal development.
“One particularly disturbing video shows a preborn child as being represented by a spoonful of red jam and then being made into a sandwich for consumption,” an article from SFLA reads.
“The caption of the post is: ‘Hey @tribeforlifewm [the Tribe for Life’s Instagram page] do you want a sandwich?”
Wolfe says that pro-life William & Mary students have repeatedly been discriminated against and harassed both on campus and online despite “consistently attempting” to have a normal and healthy discussion about abortion to try to “find common ground.”
“[I]nstead,” Wolfe says, “they are met with anger and malice.”
In an unrelated but similar type of scenario from back in 2019, a Students for Life event in Rochester, Minn., was disrupted by abortion lovers who cut off Students for Life of America Northern Regional Coordinator Noah Maldonado as he was speaking.
At one point, it was believed that one of the pro-death cult members was carrying a bomb and planning to blow up the pro-life attendees.
