Attempts to facilitate the baby formula deficiencies saw 31 tons of baby food loaded onto a military aircraft on Saturday that's now headed for Indiana.

President Biden's Operation Fly Formula will see 132 pallets of the Nestle-manufactured powder arrive in the US later on Saturday.

Multiple infants were allowed to hospitals across the U.S. after suffering allergic reactions to homemade formula, with one pediatrician suggesting the crisis will only worsen.

The White House says 132 pallets of Nestlé Health Science Alfamino Infant and Alfamino Junior formula will leave Ramstein Air Base in Germany and arrive in the U.S. this weekend.

Another 114 pallets of Gerber Good Start Extensive HA formula are expected to arrive in the coming days.

"These formulas have been focused because they serve a critical medical purpose and are in short supply in the United States because of the Abbott Sturgis plant closure," a White House official said.

Altogether about 1.5 million 8-ounce bottles of the three formulas, which are hypoallergenic for children with cow's milk protein allergy, will arrive this week.

While Biden first asked that the Pentagon use commercially chartered aircraft to move the formula from Europe to the U.S., the White House said no commercial flights were available this weekend.

Instead, U.S. Air Force planes will haul the first batch, in what has been dubbed "Operation Fly Formula."

It comes as babies are being hospitalized across the U.S. due to depreciating formula shortages, with doctors warning worse is to come, as Biden faces condemnations over his slow response.

The Medical University of South Carolina confirmed that at least four babies have been admitted to the hospital due to the formula shortage as of Thursday night, while Dr. Mark Corkin said he's treating two toddlers for the same issue at the Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, CBS reported.

An unspecified number of babies are also being treated at a hospital in Atlanta.

According to the hospitals, the babies were admitted due to reactions they suffered from drinking formula different from the ones they usually drank because parents could not find the product amid the shortage. "I've never seen anything like this," Corkins told CBS. "They come in dehydrated. We give them IV fluids. We give them nutrition by vein. But that's not a long-term solution."

The hospitalization reports come after the Biden administration approved its "Operation Fly Formula" to deliver more than two hundred pallets of formula from Germany to the U.S. on Friday. The Nestle formula - enough for 1.5 million eight-ounce bottles - should touch down in Indiana Saturday.
