WASHINGTON ― Lawmakers are outraged about the alarming nationwide shortage of baby formula, but as with most things in Congress, there’s more grandstanding than solutions.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) on Wednesday added his voice to the growing chorus of Republican legislators pointing a finger at President Joe Biden and his administration, which he called “characteristically sluggish and halting” in their response.

“The Administration should have foreseen these supply shortages,” McConnell said in a statement. “But the Biden Administration has been too slow and passive about getting production back up and running. Both Republican and Democratic Senators have demanded answers from the Administration and gotten none.”

“The President and his team must get ahold of the situation fast and do right by America’s moms, dads, and babies,” he added.

Baby formula is usually the only main nutrition doctors recommend for babies younger than 1 year besides breastmilk. For mothers who can’t breastfeed or who need to supplement their milk, formula is essential. And switching from one type of formula to another can upset a baby’s digestion, which can mess with a baby’s sleep routine and thus can be an all-around disaster for parents ― so being unable to obtain a familiar brand can be a major problem.
