I believe that the orphanages are happy to have the help and support and that it is also important for the babies to have some continuity of formula. I am asking that if people take over formula that they consider taking Nestle Good Start with Natural Cultures. It seems to be the closest to Nestle's NaN formula.
Nestle Good Start with Natural Cultures comes in a formula for babies 0-12 months and a formula for babies 9-24 months. NaN 1 for infants seems to be the hardest to find so people might want to keep that in mind. Nope I don't work for Nestle or have any interest other than trying to provide continuity for the babies.
You can check out this formula against others. Right now you can get a 6 24oz cans from Amazon.com shipped free for $103. Diapers.com has Good Start NC 1for $170 and Good Start NC 2 for $150.
I know everyone wants to help and it might be most helpful if we try to reduce the number of brands and different formulations that we are taking to Ethiopia.
My Plan from Here:
- Contact Nestle to find out if there is a way that we can get them to donate NaN or if they will set up a way that others can pay for the formula and they will ship it directly to Ethiopia.
- Contact Nestle to find out if we can set up some sort of bulk purchasing for Good Start in the U.S.
- Check to see if there is another manufacturing that might help with number 1 and 2.
- Initiate a milk drive that communicates the need and focuses family on one brand or formulation.
