What kind of formula does WIC provide you?

Where are you from and what kind of formula does your agency give you. It seems that every single one is different. Just curious

  • It depends on your location, here they only give The goodstart which is total garbage IMO. It made my son VERY sick.

  • We use to get emfamil but they changed over to simalc. Luckly my first son was done with formula when they did the switch and it was before my second son was born. I don't like switching formulas on my boys makes them sick LOL OH and I'm in UT!! :)
