Shortage of Baby Milk (again)

Just had a call from my DD who tells me that she has been to several shops (and telephoned a few others) and cannot get any of the baby milk formula that her baby has. (Cow and Gate follow on). She only has a bottle for bed these days and sometimes a little one during the night if she wakes. She suffers from allergies so not easy just to change.

The lady in Morrisons told her today that it disappeared off the shelf as soon as it was put out. Ditto Boots.

I am going to do the rounds when I leave work today . Fingers crossed.

Panic buying or absolute selfishness ?

Just found it on Amazon gilly if you have no luck in your search.

At £16.69 and £3.99 delivery which takes 3/4 days I would think for emergencies only. What a price!

Selfishness gillybob if it's due to panic buying.
