You cannot condem a teen mom for using WIC when most people of any age, any marriage status qualify and use it also.

I'm confused why people assume young moms are all on WIC though...
The hospital staff and my OB office staff all kept asking if I had signed up for WIC yet... I'm like "uh, no? I don't need WIC."

They're like "OH BUT YOU CAN GET SOME OF YOUR GROCERIES FOR FREE!" Yeah, I don't need free groceries, but thanks. I was on WIC with DS, and it was almost more trouble than it was worth, to have to do all those damn visits and weight checks at a busy ass, ghetto clinic. It was only worth it because I couldn't breastfeed him and his formula was 38 bucks a can. I breastfeed DD though, and probably wouldn't even apply even if she was formula fed.

I can not pet you.  I put on some cocoa butter lotion for my dry skin.

I dont think its a shameful thing for people to use WIC, if its there use it. But I was like you, I declined, too much of a pain in the ass. Additional appointments and running around.

When I lived half an hour north of here, I could use the North County clinic, which was peaceful, and usually only had a couple people waiting there at a time, if any at all.
The clinic near me now is the same one I had to use when I was pregnant with DS, before we moved north, and OMFG it's awful. The waiting room is so full of trashy people, screaming, rude little brats everywhere, knocking shit over and slapping babies, and the nurses are so overwhelmed by the bullshit that they treat everyone like a number. If I were on WIC now, that's the clinic I'd have to use, and NOPE, NO THANK YOU, I'LL PAY FOR MY PEANUT BETTER AND MILK OUT OF POCKET, THANKS.
