The effort includes gathering donated human breast milk and providing a breast milk alternative during the shortage. Abbot, who is the maker of baby formula is working with the Food and Drug Administration feels it could take up to eight weeks for the formula to start appearing on the shelves again. Mother's Milk Bank is collecting human breast milk in the meantime.
