  • Also go to your local county Child & Family Services office. They'll get you a food card and provide you with much more items/clothing/etc for your daughter and you.

  • you local social services office. they can cover wic, medicaid, tanf, and even daycare. also check craigslist and other groups here on cafemom. i was in the same position as you and i found a mother who gave me a huge box and two bags of clothing for my daughter. i gave her some cash but she didnt ask for anything in return. there are people who want to help. i get many coupons for formulas i dont use. if you need/want them im willing to send them to you no problem. i can send you other coupons also. i totally understand how hard it is for you right now and i want to help as much as i can. message me n ill get all the coupons together for you.

  • file for child support. it is his legal obligation to help you with his child. it takes a little while to kick in and all you need is whatever info you know about him and a picture.
