Infant Formula Resources and Recommendations

Women Infants and Children (WIC):

  • Families who are enrolled in WIC receive electronic benefits that may be used at approved retail stores to cover the cost of purchasing some formulas.  WIC can assist families and coordinate with healthcare providers to assess which formula options are best for each participant, and connect them with available resources.
  • Families without a medical provider who are facing a shortage may call the Larimer County WIC office, even if they are not a client, to get connected to resources and recommendations. 
    • 970-498-6720 (Fort Collins)
    • 970-619-4590 (Loveland, Estes Park, Berthoud)

Additional resources and information can be found on Colorado's WIC website.

 

Community Resources: 

General Guidelines: 

  • Parents who are close to running out of formula supply and unable to find it in stores may contact their child's pediatrician or their healthcare provider for additional recommendations or resources.
  • Do not water down formula.
  • It is very unsafe to make at-home formula. There are many health risks associated with nutrition, making this unsafe for the infant. 

Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program

The special supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). WIC's goal is to provide nutrition education, healthy foods, and breastfeeding support. We also provide health screenings and referrals to other community support.

WIC is for all kinds of families: married, single parents, working or not working. If you're a father, mother, grandparent, foster parent or other legal guardian of a child under 5 you can apply for WIC.
