My daughter came to visit a couple weeks ago. When travelling she has an almost five month old baby. So just think about everything she has to pack. I told her what we could buy in Amarillo we would.

When she asked about formula I told her to just pack a couple of cans. That would last her awhile, right? She actually packed three and man did that stuff go fast. So I ordered some from Sam's. I mean it's a bigger size.

That is Where I Messed Up

I ordered the wrong kind.

So I thought I would just return and get what she needed. Except online it shows they are out of the Simlac Total Comfort formula she gets. So hiccup number one.

Then I thought no big deal I would order on Amazon until Sam's had what was needed. No dice there either. Similac Total Comfort was out there as well. Dang, Amazon has EVERYTHING, or at least I thought.

She has eight cans at home. In Dallas, where we were going today, if the roads were not the way they were. So a lot of help they are. So anytime I seen Similac at Walgreens I will grab a can or two.

Here is my stash:

The one on the left is still not the same stuff but close enough. A can only lasts a few days. We just have to get this shortage fixed. We don't want to have to get her used to other kinds.

I can't be the Mimi who lets her granddaughter starve.  Faith is a member of a couple of mom groups and it looks like this is not an isolated incident. There are moms all over reporting shortages of the formula they are needing.

So have you run across this issue?
