it was ok

Overall the story wasn’t bad but it was on the short side. The author apparently does NOT understand breastfeeding, formula, or feeding a baby in order to keep it alive during food and water shortages. For instance, it’s an apocalypse and formula is no longer going to be produced. It’s the apocalypse, finding safe water will eventually become an issue. Breastfeeding provides a source of antibodies and a bunch of other stuff to keep babies healthy, boobs can also be a pacifier and smart people might want to keep babies quiet if zombies are in the area. Have you read the instructions on powdered formula? Prepare with BOILING WATER. You aren’t boiling the water becaus your city water isn’t safe (although in an apocalypse you might have to) you’re boiling it to kill the BACTERIA present in manufactured formula. Newsflash: deciding to formula feed your baby “because it’s the apocalypse” is the DUMBEST thing I have ever heard. You’re planning to give up a biologically safe food, a readily available food, in order to go LOOK and HOPE you find formula, LOOK and HOPE you have a water source, boil said water, mix the sketchy formula with boiling water, WAIT FOR IT TO COOL, and THEN feed the crying baby?

At the very least another character should have slapped that mother upside her head and said “NO! Stupid! That’s how you kill your baby.”

Please do some effing research before you publish things that can kill people. Modern western society can choose formula or breast. There’s a reason why other societies can’t, because babies die.
