Indiana Mother Whose Baby Has Severe Allergy to Cow’s Milk Shares Photos of Rash She Gets After Drinking It Amid Devastating Formula Shortage

The mom shared heartbreaking photos of her nearly six-month-old daughter Palmer’s face and head covered in a red rash to show what happens when she has cow’s milk

A mother whose infant daughter has severe food allergies has shared photos of her baby’s rash-covered skin after drinking cow’s milk to highlight the devastating impact of the nationwide formula shortage.

Kayzie Weedman, 29, from Indiana, shared her concerns in a now-viral TikTok last week, explaining that her nearly six-month-old daughter, Palmer, is allergic to the ingredients in most formulas and can only consume specific brands.

‘Let’s talk about the formula shortage that is plaguing the U.S. right now because more people need to know about this,’ she said.

‘You go to your local Target, your local Walmart, you think you’re going to get the formula your baby needs? Nope. Shelves are bare. And there are babies who can’t have just any formula on the shelf.’

Weedman then paused to share pictures of a painful-looking red rash on her daughter’s face and head to show what happens when she has cow’s milk.

‘So, what am I to do when I go to the shelves and I can’t get [the] formula I need?’ the mom asked. ‘The pharmacist who fills her prescription formula can’t fill it because they can’t get it. It’s back-ordered six months, and I just have to sit there and stare at empty shelves and not know what I’m going to do next.

‘Formula is not available on any of the shelves,’ she stressed. ‘They’re empty — nowhere near three hours near me [has it]. Can’t get the formula. What are we going to do? Where do we go from here? How do formula moms feed their kids? What are our options? This is crazy.’
