  • My son went through more formula then wic would give, i mean lots and lots and i went to every formula website because some give sample cans and i signed up eveybody i knew to get one and i also went to the hospital and asked if they had any samples about to go out of date because at that time wic was giving enfimil and no one wanted the similac samples, so i got those, also there are public health organizations, not wic that have fromula also. There is a program that serves clients that do not get wic and the is the mac(mothers and children program), if is a federal program also. You could also contact social services as well as food shelfs sometimes they get donations, with this economy we all have to be creative!!! Formula is soo expensive, i also started my son and daughter on rice cereal (only rice cereal because it was so early) early like at 3 and a half months, really liquidly on a sppon its messy but they liked it.

  • WIC has a pretty high income limit. If she didn't qualify because of her income she should be able to afford the formula. Not being mean, just honest.

    Sadly, I just tossed out some formula coupons the other day because they had been rolling around the desk for months and I was sick of looking for someone to give them to.

  • Wow rude comment. Maybe she over qualified 5 bucks. Thinking before you speak works wonders.
