The crew of an Air Force C-17 begins to unload a planeload of baby formula at Indianapolis International Airport.

A military plane carrying enough specialty infant formula for more than half a million baby bottles arrived Sunday in Indianapolis, the first of several flights expected from Europe aimed at relieving a shortage that has sent parents scrambling to find enough formula to feed their children. At the same time, local health officials are working to get parents information and guidance. Melissa spoke with two of these health care providers.


  • Dr. Jeffrey Goldhagen, medical director, Partnership for Child Health.
  • Elizabeth Bobo, children's health clinical dietician lead at Nemours.
