“We were put in a position that no mothers should be put in,” Amber Bergeron of Sorrento, 루이지애나, 폭스 뉴스 디지털에 말했다.
“We feel helpless. We feel like, as a community, we are trying to take care of this instead of [the right people] stepping in,” 그녀는 덧붙였다. “People are not paying attention to what’s really going on here and the severity of it, but it’s still happening. It’s like they just forgot.”
그녀는 계속했다, “Formula is not something that should be gone without … and the fact that we have had problems feeding our babies and it’s going on nationally, that’s ridiculous. That’s disgusting to me because I’m sure these politicians’ babies eat,” 그녀가 말했다.
“I’m sure they find a way.”
Bergeron, a Sorrento resident, said she and her family were first affected by the formula shortage not long after her twins — daughter Sky (who has a moderate heart defect) and son Storm — were born on April 10, four weeks premature.
Her babies spent nearly two weeks in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Each arrived weighing 5 파운드, 3 온스.
