Because there is now another mouth to feed in the household even if you bf.

I am not bashing - just asking an honest question............. what is your point to this post -- are you wanting to know why it went up - did you call the office and ask ---- are you sharing cause you think you should share this type of business on a public site?  I am honestly looking to understand the women that feel the need to just open up their lives and situations to others ridicule and bashing......

I hope mine go up that much when I have my baby. I don't care what anyone thinks, I just hope they do.

It went up for your baby, and maybe so you get proper nutrition while breastfeeding. Stock up.

It doesn't matter what the baby eats, they still count as a person. It is to help supplement the fact that you will have to spend more on other things for the baby, so not as much money for food.

Um, be grateful and leave it at that. If you are that concerned call your caseworker and ask. Many of us are barely scraping by and don't qualify.

You have no income and additional household member now. That's why. There are no age restrictions on benefits. It guess by household size and income, but what each member consumes personally.

Mine just went from 126 to 367......I guess from what my case worker said, it should have always been that. I dont know....weve never needed help before a few months ago and I thought it was kinda low but we were just grateful to get the help.
