Getting help from your local authority or social services

All local authorities should have an emergency formula provision pathway in place under Unicef guidelines.

The best way to access this is to talk to your health visitor or midwife.

Katherine O'Brien, a spokesperson for BPAS, advised parents and carers who are struggling to feed a formula-fed baby to talk to their health visitor who can signpost them to local support.

Social services may be able to provide emergency formula out-of-hours. You can use your postcode to find your local children's social services.
