Southwest Florida mom easing the baby formula shortage

FORT MYERS

Some women who are breastfeeding are willing to help moms in Southwest Florida impacted by the baby formula shortage.

Not all formula works for all babies with factors like health and age playing a role. While there is some formula for sale at Walmart on Colonial and Six-Mile Cypress. There is a mom who has a lot of breast milk to share.

Jordan Paul, the mom of three-year-old and eight-month-old girls, breastfeeds both. She says she produces an extra 15 to 20 ounces of milk per day. She saves the extra milk she pumps in her freezer for mothers who can’t find the formula they need for their little ones.

“It’s broken my heart to know that moms are struggling and not being able to feed their babies,” Paul says. “So it just I was just prompted to say if any women need or know of another woman in need of breast milk because they’re not able to obtain the formula, then I’d be happy to give my extra or wet nurse or pumped for someone, whatever they need.”

Jordan Paul is part of a group called Mindful Mamas and the milk she donates is free. To learn more about these milk donations, you can join the Facebook group Mindful Mamas.
