  • The contracts for the formula companies are renewed regularly and every so often they switch brands. Talk to your ped about your DD's constipation and about getting a prescription for the formula that she used to be on if you had to switch recently.she may just be adjusting to the new formula and it may take a little time for her body to adjust.
    If your ped will write the prescription then wic has to follow it.

  • Different states different rules. We had one formula here they would not give even with perscription, and it was Goodstart. Yet for some states it is primary formula.
