7 cans of gerber good start gentle, 32 jars of baby food and 3 boxes of baby cereal. Hes 7 months
we only supplement. i told them he only get formula once every few days and only a few ounces. he is 2 months old. they gave me 4 cans a month!! that is insane! i probably will maybe use one can a month. i dont get it! ... i honestly feel like that is way too much and plan to tell them that he isnt getting formula at all at my next appointment. it feels like such a waste. especially because if you try to sell the extra, a)you can get in trouble for fraud, b) that is just wrong because you get it for free, c) no one will buy it because they think you got it for free (this happens even if you buy formula and try to sell -like if you buy two cans and then find out that baby doesnt like it all of a sudden, or whatever) ..... so yeah... wic gives out a lot of formula. i will probably hold onto these 4 cans and then they will last me for atleast 4 months.
BUT, have to say, just because someone is selling formula on cl doesnt mean they got it for free on wic. maybe they got samples and dont need itor it was given as a gift, or they bought enough for a month, and then found out that baby needs a different kind or something else... i hate when people assume that someone selling formula got it for free.
Well, some of those women are breastfeeding, but they tell WIC they are formula feeding. So, WIC gives them formula, and they sell it on Craigslist.
I got 9 cans a month then it reduced to 7. They are smaller but we still spend money on formula a month. We never once have had extra.
My daughter got 11 cans a month until she was 7 months old. Then she got 9 cans and baby food until 1.
