  • No, I steal it. Seriously though, no, I breastfeed. Why waste taxpayer money paying for something you can give your baby for free.

  • I will when he is born, but I'll be pumping my milk as well so we won't be spending that much money on formula since he'll mostly get breast milk(hopefully, we'll see)

  • Both. I did receive WIC, but it wasn't enough. I always bought 3-4 cans on my own each month. (powdered)

  • Oh yes! $120 a month at least! If you go to Sam's or BJ's you get a great deal! Especially if you get coupons!

  • nope wic....this is a program all mothers should be on.......they give you checks for the whole month! TRY IT it's great... and when they get older and they move to solids, than they will supply whole or 2 percent milk.. and other stuff.....why????

  • some of it wic picks up teh cost of 8 cans we have to pay for the other two but our son is on a perscription formula that costs $54.58 a can so I dont know how we would ever pay for that i used to think $12 a can was outrageous LOL and now I am wishing I had that formula bill lol

  • Well I breasteed and let daddy give formula once in a while(like once or twice a month) if I want to nap...we don't have a free formula program in Canada so I do buy it.
