I am wonting to breast feed and formula feed as well. I have friends who have done it but I havnt talked to them since they hade their babys. I wonna do both but I dont know if it would affect your amount of fomula you would recieve on WIC checks. I wont to do both because I dont wont my baby dependent on just me alone if something goes wrong where I cant I wont the baby to already have and be use to a certain formula as well I have two lil girls who done great on formula alone I have just been doing some thinking on breastfeeding and I would like to do both. I plan to use a pump as well it would be more suitable for me if I am not home. I just wonted to know if anyone has done this and how much formula you got each month on WIC or if it affected anything. Thnak you very much to anyone who replies it would be most helpful to me. Does WIC supplie a pump ?

WIC will supply a breast pump, if you need one ask after you have baby- they will give you a voucher for one- also check with your hospital, because at my hospital WIC works on location, and supplies breast pumps BEFORE you go home. And I told WIC that I would LIKE to breastfeed, but have to go back to work- because I said that, I received 9 cans a month, which was more than enough. Now at 6 months WIC provides baby food as well as formula, this changed AUG 1st!!!

This MAY sound shitty of me- But I lied and said I was strictly formula feeding, even though I breastfed for 6 months, every month I would go get all my formula, so when I was done breastfeeding I had MORE than enough to last me. What I didn't use after a year, I donated to the food pantry.
