I can bf I just do not want to. Wic knows I successfully bf my son. Her we don't get any formula for the first month because they want you to at least try and I get that but im just not wanting to continue. I also have ppd and want to go on medication but the medication they can offer me ive tried before and it does nothing(ive had ppd with my other children). If I tell them im on medication will they call to check or ask to see a prescription? I have not been to my 6 week appointment yet which is when I plan to tell her but I go to my one month appointment for wic on Monday.

If the medication excuse doesn't work what can I tell them to get the formula?

I don't see how having ppd and getting medication is selfish?
This baby was an oops. ..I got my tubes tied when I had my csec. And I hated bfing with my son it didn't help with ppd it possibly made it worse. I don't want to bf anymore I dreed the weekend until I go to my appointment. If they deny me I will buy some formula on my own and continue to bf but its not what I want to do.

It was never a problem for me.

I told them breastfeeding just didn't work out of me and my supply dried up.

The truth. They won't deny you because you don't want to bf.

medication won't be an excuse unless it affects your ability to breastfeed.  As for the rest, I really dont know.  I didn't go into WIC till DD was 3mo and my milk dried up even though I tried to bf

I have never heard of anyone having to make excuses of why they didn't bf to get WIC. It seems discriminatory.
