  • WIC can basically cover any formula you want to use. they cant really ssay you have to use this certain one b/c what if your lil one is allergic to it? so its up to you just find one you and lill one like and tell them you want that one. I dont know about food stamps though

  • It varies by state. In California they give Enfamil. If your baby doesn't do well on it, there are other options, but that's what they give first.

    Yes, you can buy formula with food stamps.

  • call the office nad they can tell you cause each one is different. If your baby needs a special kind your doctor will need to write a prescription and they will cover it

  • we always got good start...
    it was the green can that says Nestle Good Start Supreme DHA & ARA Natural Cultures, Infant Formula with Iron. i guess it has in a way nutritions that you can find on breastmilk.
    some people would tell us we werent gnna be able to get it but we try anyway and we never got told no.. we were able to get it until he got off of baby formula and switch to big boy milk.
    but it does change for every state i am not so sure.

  • I have WIC and they will almost cover any formula with your doctors consent. My baby switch to the alamintum (spelling?) then he had to go back to similac advance...and they covered both

  • If cost is such a worry don't forget breastmilk is free.
