  • basically the same. you get your choice between having cheese or extra milk, and if you decide to breastfeed it will most likely be the exact same, if not they will provide formula and take some of the other stuff away. it really all depends on where you live, and if your going to be doing the breast or bottle.

  • When your baby comes..if you breast feed (milk cheese beans pb..etc)
    Not breastfeed--cans of formula

  • I got the same things until my daughter was 6 months (it stopped bc I wasn't breastfeeding anymore) and they stared giving us formula at 3 months because my daughter refused to breastfeed.

  • Same items you are getting right now, if you are breastfeeding, you are getting few more new things til the baby is 8 months they will start add baby food/rice cereals. (so if you are doing formula feeding then you are getting same thing and get formulas also but not much as like you will get from breastfeeding list. they do have list to compare and you'll see difference between in both)

  • formula, and you will get, milk eggs, cheese , butter, cereal, juice and all that until the baby is 6 onthes old, then the baby will also get cereal ( baby) and jar food and infant juice unitl 1 year, after that they get milk, eggs, juice etc.

  • I nursed, this is what I got. Milk, juice, cheese, eggs, tuna, carrots, beans or peanut butter, fresh/canned/frozen veggies, bread. You get these until baby is 1 if you nurse the whole time. If you don't nurse, you only get checks until 6 mos post partum. Baby will get checks starting at 3-6 mos for juice, cereal and now they do baby food too, then after they turn 1 they get milk, eggs, juice, cheese, bread, beans or peanut butter, and fresh/canned/frozen veggies.

  • Oh, we never got the cereal because we didn't use it. You don't have to use all the checks, but I believe you DO have to get all the items on a specific check.
