  • WIC for formula, that's about it. Diapers you're on your own unless you can get some from a food bank or something like that.

  • I would say WIC for formula, but I haven't heard of anything for diapers. See if your city has some type of organization such as a First Call for Help, maybe they could point you in the right direction.

  • WIC for formula. Around here they have a program called Lovelife through some of the catholic churches and they give out free diapers. See if there's something like that in the area.

  • Yep, WIC was a huge blessing for formula when Samuel was little. I don't know about anything for diapers.

  • WIC provides diapers as well, at least here in Washington. They have a great support system, and can usually give you more then just formula.

  • WIC, local churches and food banks, maybe yard sales or craigslist or something (either cheap or partial packs of diapers and such) and you could also try wishuponahero.com.

  • Are you pregnant or something? Because your kid is 5... or is this for a friend?
