How much formula do you get from WIC?

It seems like women around my area are selling formula left and right on Craigslist so it makes me wonder how much formula these people are getting. If you're on WIC how much formula do you get and how old is your baby?

I got 9 cans when he was 1 month old. These were the very small cans. I know you get less when the baby get older and eats baby food

When I FF DD, I got 10 cans a month until she turned 6 months old. After that it went down to like 8 or 9 cans and she got basic stage 1 food and rice cereal. If she went through a growth spurt and ate more that month, we'd have to buy extra formula. I'm hoping I won't need formula this time around, but I'm pregnant with twins, so we'll see how it goes.
