Caregivers of infants between birth and 12 months can get emergency formula. We will need to see:


  • ID with a photo for baby's parent or caregiver


  • 1 official form showing baby's full name and date of birth


  • If your baby uses a medically-necessary formula (like Sensitive, for Spit Up, or Alimentum), we need to see a note from the doctor or a current WIC shopping list. Please see below for details. 

What you need to bring

Forms we can use include...

...the "Verification of Birth Facts". This is usually in the hospital papers. 

...WIC or Medicaid card or papers,  only if it shows the baby's birthday.

...a Statement of Paternity

...a doctor's note for formula

...other hospital papers that show the baby's date of birth


We cannot use...

...the Social Security Card or the WIC card. These do not have the baby's birthdate.

...the shot record because those are hand written.


Please call us at (713) 528-6044 if you have questions about what you need to bring.
